An average pilsener if there ever was one, yet not the norm for the style. It pours a very cloudy, murky, hazy yellow-gold with a smallish head. It drinks easily enough, though there isn't any real character to it whatsoever. Nearly no finish, there is a slight maltiness balanced with a barely-perceptible hop bitterness.

I don't know that I can really recommend it, but it goes down easily enough and is quite inexpensive, so you could certainly do worse.

Cloudy, murky orange body with a limp head on top, a collar more than a covering, even as the 'metre of beer' arrived (a touristy metre of beer, 6 glasses each, of Pils and Dunkel, you could have all of one style or a mix).

Refreshing and pleasant enough, without setting the world alight, a bitter finish and a fruity nose. More of a 'land' or 'keller' style in looks, even if the taste was leaning towards a Pilsner, it wasn't your norma; clear clean looking type.

Been to the brewpub twice now, strange place, but fun and certainly different to all the other brewpubs in Berlin.

Drinking in the microbrewery what is probably the smallest ones in Berlin, the beer has a strong golden color and quite clean. It has a white foam not particularly beautiful: big bubbles and foam in general no so thiny.
The smell is very weak: a slight malty and a little biscuit, but just looking good at the bottom. Even the taste slips away quickly, leaving little traces (a bit of malt and biscuit and nothing more); too light and not very characterized.
The aftertaste does not denied: soft and watering. The beer fortunately doesn't show evident defects: is correct, but lacks personality and to drink it is not so satisfactory. For a micro brewery, in our opinion, this is a lack.
