2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Dark gold without bubbles, white skim. Not an especially nice aroma; matchbox, rubber band, some cabbage- any grassiness buried. Marginally better flavour; grassy hop and biscuit, but again undermined by phosphorus and rubbery off notes. Still condition. Either badly damaged, a poor example of German brewing, or a bit of both. Late almonds and honey; the sensation of butter on the tongue. Tempted to tip.

Bottle at Artliners, Berlin. Pours a clear light orange with a white head and lacings. Light sweetness with aromas of light malts. Medium to light bodied. Soft carbonation. Mellow light, hoppy finish... Guess the key word here is "light"?

3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Half-litre flip-top bottle taken on 16 Apr 2011 in the excellent ’Aufsturz’, Berlin.
This is a good example of a Southern German Pilsner, smoother than those from the north, but full bodied and showing all the favourable attributes of the style: clear, golden colour, snowy white head and a hop content which is notiveable but not obtrusive in any way.
A little stronger than most Pilsners alcohol wise, but it hides it’s strenght well. Easy to drink and even with a slighty bitter hop aftertaste it is one of the best Pilsners I’ve ever had.
