A clear straw colored lager, a white head leaving some lacing and some curtains.

Sour metallic, wet moldy paper smell.

White bread, tin can orange juice, an alkaloid bitterness.

Medium high carbonation, fizzy bubbles, slightly sticky, a short sharp bitterness.

Yet another dull lager, metallic and sour.

The colour is pale gold, the liquid is clear. The two finger head is compact and white; it sinks slowly leaving some lacing on the glass.

German noble hops in the smell. Light notes of rustic bread, hints of caramel and fresh cut flowers.

The taste is rather bitter for the style, at least in the start. Then, it gets more malty and sweeter. Cut flowers and wild flowers, hints of alcohol and almonds. Light to medium body. Lemon bitterness in the aftertaste as well as French loaf and some bitter herbs. The finish got some bitter notes of German and Czech hops.

The carbonation is medium strong, the long-lived bubbles are small. The liquid is somewhat smooth.

A bit bitterer than the average Euro lager, but too sweet to be categorized as a German pilsener.

A very generic lager with hints of citrus and honey. Unfortunately there are slight aftertastes of oxidized copper.

Golden pour, quite weak carbonation. Mouthfeel very good.

Nothing surprising or exciting, just a bog standard lager slightly weaker on the alcohol and tastewise better than the average. Enjoyable at the right times (hot summer barbecue I'd guess is ideal to this one?)
