2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 2006 BA review: 0.5 litre brown bottle poured into my old Berliner Kindl pint straight sleeve glass. The glass left Berlin in early 1990, just after the wall came down in Nov 89. This bottle of beer left Berlin in October 2006 and was consumed in Dec the same year: best before May 2007.
I remember drinking this beer by the bucket load (mostly on tap) while living in the city, my memory is playing tricks, because I thought it was better than this.
Times change and so do our taste buds, so this review is about the new bottle and my tastes now.
Looks OK, Golden yellow, clean, clear and sparkling. Whiter than white head, which stayed.
Poured cold, so no real aroma at first, mixed herbs and wheat arrived as the beer warmed up.
Light hop flavour, wheat maybe, but dry and thirstquenching, mouthfeel is not great, but the dryness stays for a while.
Not what I remember, but a steady pilsner in both style and taste.
