AshtonMcCobb (2313) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 27, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours golden with gentle bubbles and an adequate head. The nose has lemon and honeyed wheat. The taste has more of the same, though the the lemon is almost lemonade-esque. The palate is medium bodied with a tangy texture and a clean finish, Overall, this doesn’t have quite the bitterness of a proper German Pils but it’s actually pretty decent.

This is an easy to drink lager with a very soft, smooth taste. It lacks depth but does it’s job well and is very well refined for a lager.

Jotaigna (9) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2011 does not count
A clean tasting lager for those hot spanish afternoons. Little hop aroma and almost no malt. Pours light straw and clear with small bubbles and white head. Taste is delicately malty and subdued bitterness, even more than typical european mega brews. It has a light body, pleasant maltiness and when its cold its super refreshing. I was downing it with tapas in Granada at the time, and it went down well.
