2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 litre brown flip-top bottle, obtained in Berlin and brought home to review at leasure. Best before 2nd April 09, drank Jan 09.
Poured into a UK pint sleeve glass.
I was expecting a cloudy Landbier, what sat before me was a Helles or Pilsner in looks. Golden, bright, clear and bubbley with a good white head on top. The large head which greated me tried to stay, but a wispy covering and collar were all that was left at the end.
Gets my normal average lager score for smell, there isn’t any as usual for this style.
Dry and fairly ordinary. If I had known it was this bland it wouldn’t have been flown back with me. Typical helles with all the normal character you know about.
Nothing wrong with the beer, I just feel cheated, my German is obviously not as good as i thought! Pleasant enough for a lager based beer, some body and flavours to almost chew on.
