Review: 50 cl Can of Oettinger Export: ABV: 5.4%

The cheap beer with added value.

On pour a lot of carbonation producing a very clear golden colour. A big bubbly white head appears which does die a death pretty fast to leave a small flat head. No lacing. Appearance is ok, nothing special.

Has a good beery smell, a bit faint but good all the same, yeasty, grainy….

Bit of a biting metallic taste, but goes and once you get over that the beer is quite enjoyable

Can taste the malts, the grains and the yeast

All in the front taste, nothing remarkable in the back end which is a little bit dry.

Not bad. Smooth and filling, getting nice big creamy mouthfuls.

Strong bitter hoppy taste might not be suitable for everyone, but it doesn’t hang around and I found it bearable.

Beery. I like it. Sessionable enough though, especially for the price. The beer to price ratio in this beer is excellent, Cheap beer equals good session

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

500ml can

appearance: clear golde, good amount of carbonation builds a 2 finger head that stays for a while. Good retention.

smell: sweet malts and somewhat artificial hop sensation.

taste: it's pretty sweet, malty and with a decent bitterness level.

mouthfeel: medium bodied. The carbonation felt too heavy on my stomach.

overall: decent lager, better than most of the local offerings.

Poured 0.5l can into a Pilsener glass.

A: Pours very clear and of nice golden color. Foamy white head is two fingers high, with solid retention and nice lacing in the glass. Medium-to-high amount of carbonation is visible.

S: Elder and sweet malts aromas.

T: Sweet biscuity malts and elder flavors with lots of hoppy bitterness. Dry and slightly sweet aftertaste.

M: Feels light bodied and crisp, good carbonation on the palate.

O: Clean, light and pleasant. Decent Export Lager.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Served cool from 500ml brown bottle into straight pilsner mug.

L) Clear, lovely bright golden colour, looks very fizzy, smallish bubbly white head. Looks good.

S) Strong hallertauer or maybe saars hop odour.

T) Nice hop bitterness, this is more like a pils than a helles. There is a soft honey sweet tone as well.

F) Refreshing, nicely fizzy, the bitterness doesn't linger.

O) Pleasantly surprised by this one, can recommend it to any lager fan.

From the bottle, it pours a clear golden color with a moderate, white, fluffy head. Nose detects some malt and less hops, per style - not overly strong scent. Taste is mild and without noticeable flaws (but not with noticeable attributes, either)

A - White head, 3 fingers. Huge carbonation, very unusual, but nice to watch. Golden color.
S - Citrus notes, usual for Pilsners, or Export Lagers.
T/M - Lots of bubbles in the mouth. Grains, earthy aroma. Bread and creaminess.

O - It looks more then decent, 1/2 finger foam staying till bottom. Taste is not so powerful, but it is full of grain tastes. Who like this stile, will be satisfy.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a can into a glass

A-golden and rusty; 1/2 inch head that disappeared in 10 seconds; bubbly; no lace left on the glass; a thin white ring around the edges; not so fresh.

S-metallic malt and grainy malt; very boring

T- dry in the backend with a tiny bite from the hops; not sweet; malty and biscuity in the front end. There was a slight boozy taste in the aftertaste. Nothing to write home about.

M-medium bodied; sessionable and a little crisp, but not the way I usually like this style. It hit the spot.

Overall, just meh. It is good to drink this rather than cheap adjuncts in Northeast China. It's labeled as 4.7 ABV, but in fact this one I just drank is 5.4 ABV. Don't know...Cheers to the summer!
