3.63/5 rDev -12.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Was really up for this. The last time I had it I was in Munich many many years ago and to get back into the spirit of things I poured two 500ml bottles into the Stein of Truth.
Popping the cap I was reminded immediately of that appetising beautiful smooth sweet smell of bread and the bottles poured superbly yeilding a three inch thick head. Reasonable yellow in colour. All good to go...
But to taste it began almost on the acvidic side with none of the firmness, smoothness or complexity I had once loved. Its elements were no where near as integrated as I remembered and this just struck me as being far to skinny.
A bit bewildered by the end of the litre. Another favourite traditional world classic fails to deliver the quality and taste I have grown to expect.
So bewildering in fact that I could have sworn I heard just a trace of a mocking croaking voice whisper 'Good. Good. Now go Extreme my young apprentice'.

3.46/5 rDev -16.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a standard pint glass.
Best before: August 2014
Look: A pale yellow/gold colour, a lot of carbonation, a little foamy head at first which disappears almost immediately
Smell: Has a rather sour smell of maybe lemons, grass and hops
Taste: It is very dry, not bitter at all. Sour taste, too, but not inconvenient. You can definitely taste the hops. At the end it tastes quite bitter.
Feel: Stays on the tongue and leaves a convenient, dry feeling
Overall: A very refreshing summer lager. Wouldn't want to drink too many of them but still very recommendable.
