Fattigauer "Pilsner Brauart", 4.7% abv
,5l brown recycled (reused) bottle, "Mindestens haltbar bis: 15 04 14", sampled 30.12.2013
€1,19 @ Vorwerk Podemus BioBahnhof, Wiener Platz 4, 01069 Dresden

I picked up 2 beers for my train ride from Dresden to Wien. Both were excellent, but this one was better. The name is slightly different, and it has a new label with a cute dog on it, but I'm quite sure it's the "Pilsener".

Notes: Crystal clear straw gold body. Full head bright white. Excellent head retention and lacing. Fresh aroma of lightly doughy, straw-like and grassy Pils malt. Light floral/noble hops. The flavor is stronger and the hops stand out more but remain the same - floral/grassy, and gently spicy. Bitterness is moderate, more a "helles" than a German Pils. (Fattigau is in Bayern, about halfway between Munich and Berlin). Really nice malt component. Nicely balanced. Finishes dry with some lingering hop notes. Easily drinkable in quantity. 5*** Very good.

Bottle acquired from a corner store in Leipzig, Germany. Poured into a halleroder mini (.3L) Stein in Leipzig. Reviewed live. Advertised with a green "Bioland Okologischer Landbrau" stamp, leading me to believe it is a bio beer.

A: Five finger head of no cream, bad thickness, and decent retention. Clear yellow colour. Transparent. Relatively few carbonation bubbles.

Sm: Light barley scent. That's it. Very simple and not particularly appealing.

T: Full barley with a cream climax and lingering finish. Very simple yet refreshing. Not at all bold or interesting. I'm bored after the first sip. It's balanced but uninspired.

Mf: Smooth and wet until the climax, which introduces a tingly coarseness that is quite delightful and perhaps the best aspect of this beer.

Dr: Relatively low ABV, not particularly good, and excellently priced. A decent beer for a night in with the lads, but not good if you care about what you're drinking.
