Notes: Intense fragrance of flowery-fruity notes: blossoms, honeydew melon, citrus and herbal notes of camomile and sage. The initial taste offers a confident bitterness and herbal-fruity aroma, followed by rather sharp nuances like geranium. The strong malty body complements the hops with a robust nutty note. The finish leaves you with a lasting bitterness and herbal flavour.

Malt: Bohemian Pilsener, Wiener, CaraRed

500ml Keg from Berlin brewpub (€5.00):
This one was a fairly enjoyable offering from Lemke again but probably not quite as good as some of their previous offerings that I've tried recently, mainly down to the fact that the nose was quite subdued & could definitely have been stronger. There was some pleasant citrus flavours throughout the beer & I enjoyed the earthy bitterness coming through around the middle with touches of spice in there too. It was quite a fresh & easy to drink beer with some dryness & a solid lager taste throughout without it ever really exciting; nice stuff but probably not the best from the brewery.

Drank twice during Feb 2013 in the Dickenstr/rail arches outlet while in Berlin.

Slight haze hue to this pale golden brew: on top a white crown which hung around for a while and left a little lacing before departing.

Mild hop aroma (floral and woody) with a more maltier (biscuity) taste than the smell indicates. Pleasant bitter finish and although I prefered the 'original' this isn't a bad beer.

Drunk draft directly to the brewpub, it has a yellow turbid and cloudy colour, with white foam and thin, although not very persistent.
It has the typical scents of Pils, with a significant bitter hops fresh grassy style.
The mouth feeling are enough malted, with a background slightly honeyed but not predominant, and it is quite dry.
Aftertaste leaves a pleasant bitterness and a dryness that cleans the palate, preparing the mouth of a further draft.
Definitely palatable and refreshing.

On-tap at a brew pub in Berlin, under the train station at Hackescher Markt. The Pils came to the table in a tall .5L mug with an unassuming appearance and head. Smell was of slightly funky european hops but some malt as well. Appeared to be unflitered.

Taste was very good, one of the best Pils I've ever had. Some hop bitterness that was refreshing, but what impressed me most about this beer was its mouthfeel. This Pils is somewhat maltier than average, and the ensuing mouth feel is amazing. I never thought a pils could be "creamy" and light but this one was that, and if not, then very close. Not over carbonated as well, which is something I like.

All of Lemke's brews are made on-site, and each is of the highest quality. They had four beers on-tap when I was there: Pils, Dunkel, Weiss, and Stout (seasonal). Although Berlin is not as famous for its beer as Bavaria and the Rhineland, Lemke gives Berlin some points for local brewing.

An outstanding Pils.
