Pours deep yellow with an active loose white head that's gone fast to leave a stagnant film of bubbles. Nose is corny sweetness and flint. Golden syrup and corn husk malts followed by a mineral Noble hop hit. Medium, some stick, soft.

I was expecting the worst from the other reviews and it ain't pretty in the glass, but this is a totally adequate - maybe too sweet - if unambitious German pils.

Nice looking bottle with some fancy red foil around the neck and a gold and red label.

Poured a tall creamy off-white head that popped its way to a thin film. Deep golden beer holds a few dozen streams of tiny bubbles. Not much aroma, which is good because it's mostly a sweet stale grain scent. Unpleasant malt sweetness in the flavor borders on corny. Finishes with a lingering metallic flavor. Mouthfeel is packed full of carbonation, which is good because it keeps the flavor from sticking to your tongue. First off, don't drink this if you're looking for a Pils because it's not even close. Secondly, it's not very good no matter what you're in the mood for. There are some bad aspects to this beer (mainly the corny and tiny flavors, and the crappy aroma) and no redeeming qualities.

really disappointing beer from burgerbrau. their schwarzbiers a beauty, and was expecting more of the same but ended up being a huge let down.

color was a cloudy light red with a generous head which mellowed but didnt fade away to nothing. small hint of malt and some traces of cut hay on the nose. flavor sorely lacking. was a bit sweet, not enough presence of grains of any kind and the hallertau hops just did not fit in with anything and added no impact to the brew. petered out to nothing despite a reasonale level of bubble.

a nothing beer on the whole. there is nothing in this brew to make you want to drink it over anything else. uninspired and on the insipid side. at the lower end of german beers on the ranking scale.

Very boring, thin and sweet, not particularly bitter. Quite a tinny metallic flavour, and nopt even that easy or pleasnt to drink. Not a good example of a German pils, leans more towards the mass produced examples. But perhaps just slightly better, i don't understand? their schwarzbier is so tasty!
