Poured a crystal clear gold in color with a rather dense white head. The beer was VERY well carbonated. Aroma was a nice balance between spicy Saaz like hops and a malty sweetness. Very well balanced but hard to place... is it German or Czech. A beer with a bloody identity crisis, but at least it makes for some good drinking. Bitterness makes itself known on the finish but is not overly assertive. A truly masterfully crafted beer.

Consumed at "Conmux" in East Berlin.

0.5l serving. Crystal clear pale yellow beer with a patchy white foam head on top.

A very light pils, grainy and dry throughout. Overall mouthfeel is soft. Thin cheesey, grass hop bitterness that seems to stick to the palate and into the finish, with a near syrupy character. Edge of rind and some hop spice.

An extremely easy drinking pils, with an interesting hop character ... thought it could be hop extract, but it didn't seem as contrived as other beers that use it.

Brought over as a souvenir from Germany. Label depicts crowing rooster perched on a branch. Dark straw with creamy head, aroma of malts and grasses. A very refreshing pilsner with ample malt profile, about as malty as a German pilsner can get without crossing over into Czech territory. Grassy hops give this a dry, bitter twist to keep it clean and refreshing. Not very complex, but tasty and absolutely smooth, and really excellent hops. A bit of a metallic taste that often creeps in to 2nd tier lagers but still very fine. A better beer than most.

Typical german pils, sweet malts to start, with a dry, light, crisp finish, with some bitterness, nothing to write home about, but easy enough to drink, I'd probably drink this over something like Warsteiner or Licher or even Becks, although there isn't a huge difference between them all.

16oz pint at Beer Revolution Edmonton. I do quite like almost barking the name of this beer, given its particular, um, Germanity.

This beer appears a pale golden yellow colour, with one finger of weakly foamy, mostly wispy off-white head, which leaves a sort of singular spectacle of Japanese tree painting lace around the glass as things slip away.

It smells of softly grainy, warm cereal malt, a bit of faded acrid lemon flesh, and mildly skunky leafy, earthy noble hops. The taste is more warm breakfast cereal, gritty and grainy pale malt, simmering lemon pudding, a bit of benzine (Rammstein represent!), and standard German Pils earthy, leafy noble hops.

The bubbles are pretty laid-back und (sic) understated, the body a bit of a stilted medium weight, and a bit halting in its smoothness. It finishes mostly off-dry, the fruitiness still predominating in the lingering malt, with a certain gasohol booziness, and fuzzy earthy, weedy hops.

A prototypical, mostly average German Pils, which of course ain't that bad of a thing. Grainy, a bit edgy, and with some middling noble hops. I know that doesn't really do the style justice, but that is indeed what this one's all about. Biergarten worthy, at the very least.

A crystal clear medium-gold body is topped by a frothy bright white head. The head holds fairly well before dropping to a thin creamy collar and whispy surface covering, and then leaves some nice lace throughout the glass. The nose is quite inviting with a softly sweet grainy maltiness and a touch of floral noble hops. The body is light/medium and it's quite creamy and smooth across the palate due to a very fine and moderate carbonation. The flavor delivers a beautifully balanced combination of softly sweet grainy malt and delicate floral & grassy hop flavor over a supportive bitterness. It finishes drying with a lingering note of softly sweet malt and a light residual hop flavor that's mildly spicy. An exquisitely balanced, delicate and refreshing beer that straddles both the Bohemian and North German pilsner styles (based on it's light character & gentle maltiness and it's interesting hop character). Extremely well made and immensely drinkable. Absoultely worth seeking out for the pilsner lover.

4,90€ / ,5l vom fass @ Marché Bistro at the Albrecht Dürer Airport, Nürnberg, DE on 27.09.17
Notes: Fingerprint clarity. Gold body beneath a fluffy head of bright white. Exceptional head retention and lacing buoyed by streams of bubbles rising from below. Aroma of grainy pilsner malt with some lager yeast sulphur and mildly floral and herbal hops. The flavor follows with only a touch of the yeasty sulphur found in the nose, and a bold bitterness that brings it to a dry conclusion. A drop of sweet malt immediately disappears in the finish followed by mildly spicy hops that linger gently.

The Hasseroder is a good german pils. Opened a bottle at the Lufthansas Lounge in Frankfurt on my way to India. The beer poured a clear golden with thin white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The smell included grain and grassy hops. The taste was a sharp pils with bitter foundation that dissapates nicely. The mouthfeel is a medium body with good carbonation. Overall it is a good solid pils.

Crystal clear golden color with white head that goes away completely. Aroma has clean malt and some mineral notes. Taste has also clean malt, a good amount of noble hops but also dusty grains and a slight cardboard note. Light, effervescent and mineral body. Overall it's not bad but really forgettable.

This 0.5 litre bottle was bought in Berlin on a resent visit and it flew home with me, wrapped in my dirty socks.

Poured into a Veltins tulip glass and it looks like a pilsner, golden yellow with a white head, which left very swifty, leaving a thin collar around the glass.

It smells like a pilsner, just like it looks like one.

It tastes like a pilsner as well. A good, dryish, refreshing pilsner, but nothing to get excited about.

Dryness stays in the mouth, a typical pilsner feel throughout the beer.

Overal, a good German pilsner, one I would drank again, but not pass over others to have.

One of the many beers I got on my weekend in Germany, and another average one also. This one comes from a can 500 ml. It pours a golden yellow colour, with a one finger head that won't last and no bubbles or anything.Aroma is of malts, nothing weird here. Taste is bitter and a bit metallic, but I justify it since it comes from a can. On the palate is thin, with medium carbonation.

A clear, light golden beer with a thin head and some easy-going carbonation.

Smell is very hoppy, with hopextract notes. A semi-heavy malt base that has some hints of straw and a hint of sulfur. A typical 'German' smell.

Taste is bitter with nice resinous, raw hoppiness. The taste is also very remiscent hopextract. The malt is a little green and strawlike. A great German style beer with a good balance between hops and malt.

500 ml can, bought in Germany. ABV is 4.9%. Pale golden colour, decent head. Sweetish aroma: candy, grass, herbs. The flavour is tolerably hoppy on a slightly sweetish background. This is an average German macro pils. Originally from a former East-German local brewery, which grew national when InBev took over.

Poured in a palish, golden color with a finger of foam. A storm of hard bubbles rising. The semll was of citrus and bread with a hint of fruitiness. At first the taste was clouded by the strong carbonation letting only the bitter and metal through. At this point I thought the brew was pretty watery and boring. But when the bubblestorm has ceased the citric bite comes forward, and eventually the bread comes back too. Actually, the flatter it got the better it tasted. The smell improved too.

500ml bottle. MHBE: 10.2011.

IT pours a clear gold with a frothy white head that leaves plenty of sticky lacing.

I feel like the smell stands out here. It is springy and hoppy with some citrusy fruit notes and a nice bit of underlying malt.

The flavor is sweeter than the smell would suggest. It has some decent pils flavors but it comes off a bit mild. It also has some mild diacetyl, something a bit rarer in German beers.

It isn't amazing but it isn't awful, worth a try and easily found.

See edit below:
[...] Head fades fairly quickly with lacing till it's gone. [...] The taste is good - malt with nice hops and bitterness following through. [...] It's well carbonated. This is no complex beer but it's quite drinkable.

01-2014 is the use by date.

EDIT// I got a half crate of this since reviewing it, I'm on the last two bottles this evening. I find I'm less enthusiastic now. There's something metallic there in the after-taste, and also after the first flush of carbonation in the mouth. I do like the hops, but everything is a bit thin and bread-y in the end. Still not a particularly bad pils.

A souvenir from the Harz. I have also had it on tap many times. Can't be too different, right? Drinking this straight from the fridge.

A very pale golden beer with a foamy white head.
The head is very nice on tap by the way.

Faint malts, grain and some hops. A bit citric. Could be worse.

The taste is better than on tap, or that might be the different occasion I don't know. I remembered it to be a very light flavoured beer but with an overdose of hop extract bitterness.
This tastes slightly grainy, with some hops. Not much to tell really, grain and some hopiness. Could be worse, could be better.

Clean, refreshing.

The mouthfeel is thin and there is plenty of carbonation.
If you ever get to go to the former DDR, get Köstritzer Schwarz if you can but this is not too bad either.
