Refreshing beer with lingering sweet aftertaste. Great label art work and that German clip and plastic cork to open.

Looks golden in colour.
Grainy sweet inviting smell.
Tastes of sweet grain, slight bittersweet finish.
Mouth feel is good as the carbonation is low and it's smooth.
Overall really enjoyable lager and would definitely buy again.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Pilsner glass. The bottle was a swing-top with an appealing illustration on the label. The beer poured Light-yellow with a light head of white foam. Pleaseant typical lager aroma, malty with some straw and grass. Mouthfeel substantial but no so rich as to be heavy, with a moderate carbonation. Taste was crisp, mainly grainy and malty with hints of grass and hops. Quite dry with a slightly bitter finish. Gave an overall good impression. Unique and memorable, especially for a lager.

This is a medium yellow, clear beer that pours easily, small head with big bubbles that fades slowly. The smell was heavy of grape and plum, a bit like wine but sweeter. The taste is a like honey, malts, hops and a bit of grape. Very faint hops. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, and very easy to drink. Good! Perfect for a casual, sunny, laid-back afternoon of beer.

A mild and creamy helles with a hint of sweetness at the end. Beautiful, massive, white head.

A lovely companion for summer heatwaves.

"Adler Koenig" means "eagle king" in german. Pours light-yellow beer with meager white head, leaving rapidly only a ring of froth. Fresh, very grainy nose of malts with a little bit of hops. Full body with pleasant delicate bitter finish. Moderate carbonation and very good common impression.

This helles has a bit of an edge, a sharp hoppy bitterness. Pours clear golden with short foamy head. Sparse carbonation. Aroma is malt and a touch of citrus. Taste is crackers, sourdough, hops and lemon. After working all day on a hot day, this tastes pretty darn good.
