Bottle (500ml): A pretty basic pilsener that was more like your mass produced pale lagers than a good German beer. I was quite disappointed with this one if truth be told. It had a corn and light hops smell that matched the taste, it was light & had a skunky bitterness. Not one I’d have again.

This beer has grown on me and has become a staple in my home. Its severely underrated here in australia and 24 cans will cost around $33 in comparison, the locally made, mass produced stuff costs $10 more and tastes 10 x worse.
It actually sits well on the pallette and leaves quite a nice after taste.

This was a fairly light beer, typical of a Pilsner. It has a fair amount of carbonation. Taste is a mix of bitter with slight fruity overtones. It's a neat mix, really. It's a bit light for me, but enjoyable overall.

Too me very much a generic pilsener...nothing out of the ordinary.
A pale yellow colour, with decent fluffy head, & good carbonation.
Very lagerish in aroma, with some malty sweetness...a little grassy hops with some skunkiness
Started with sweet malts, with the grassy hops, touch of pepper out the back...also a hint of sour, before a restrained bitter finish.
Mouthfeel was quite light...with enough carbonation.
Drinkability seemed not too bad, but overall the flavour was neither here nor there...if I never drink this again it won't bother me too much...Felt like I had definately been here before.

A 500ml brown bottle with a BB of Dec 2012.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A clear pale-golden colour with plentiful fine carbonation. Forms a small head of white foam that subsides rapidly. Aroma of light malt with hints of grain and stewed hops, along with weak notes of noble hops and some overcooked veg.

Tastes of light malt with a dry finish. Notes of mild stewed hops, some overcooked veg and a whiff of noble hop aroma. A faint sweetness. Subtle bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is light, crisp and tingly, but watery. Aftertaste of stewed hops/veg.

Meh - as German pilsners go this is sub-par. A relatively bland flavour with insufficient hop aroma or depth. Fairly clean and thirst-quenching, but doesn't hold your interest. Bamberg has a pedigree for exceptional beers; however this is not one of them. No need to seek it out.

Poured a straw/yellow in colour with a medium head that disappeared rather quickly. Minimal lacing.

Quite a skunky smell. Rather sweet and hoppy with a bit of malt aroma.

Quite a mild flavour but with a bit of a bitter aftertaste.

Is quite light on the mouth and isn't overly carbonated.

It is drinkable but I've had better.
