2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml stubby bottle, bought in Germany. Poured into a footed pilsner glass at home.ABV 4.9%
Pale yellow golden colour, with a snow white head on top, soapy, two fingers tall. very good retention and a nice stream of bubbles rising to the surface. Light lacing from the foam left around the glass.
Aroma is of malts mostly, I can’t seem to find any hops aroma.
Taste is neutral at first, with just some bready malts, turns bitter and alighty metallic on the aftertaste.
Quite dry on the palate. Medium thin on the body, good carbonation.
Overall, a good beer, it could use some more aroma though.

Not one of Germany's finest. Brewed in Hamburg this beer leaves a bad finish and a worse hangover.

Iconic brand, genius marketing, weak product. Astra grew to one of the strongest local beer brands with a very loyal following in Hamburg and beyond & I totally love it, though I can't deny, that there are better beers that give you less of a headache the next morning...
