2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl bottle from Aldi. A bland and boring German lager. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing to make it stand out. Bright straw in colour with a billowing white head; clean flavour and a pleasantly hopped finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 l bottle as a gift from Berlin.
It presents a clear golden with a medium and broad pored head, the carbonation’s average.
The nose is grainy and malty.
It begins crisp, the taste is sweet, flavour’s of straw.
The middle has a light aroma of cereals and grassy hops, the bleakly aftertasted finish is hoppy, just a bit spicy and tiny dry.
An easy drinkable pale stuff with medium body and a light aroma...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2010 Bottle from Aldi. Pah! Can’t believe the kicking this is getting. Bright gold with a high, pocked white head. Fresh, resiny aroma mingling pine sap, dandelion and lemon. Picks up some honey, biscuit and chamois leather as it warms, plus something a bit vegetal and Chinese-like: water chestnut? All the balanced hop and malt character suggested by the aroma; vanilla, honey and sappy, shrub-like hop finished with pilsy bite. Hopfenextrakt? Not arsed. Soft and mineral slick; lingers with breadstick and honey. Sometimes a proper pilsener straight out of the fridge hits the spot like nothing else. Going back for some more of this: it might just be my World Cup glugger of choice; something I can slug back in quantity without analysis, and savour every sip.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Aldi. Bright, peach gold. Crisp taste - bitterness rolls around the mouth, mingling with the specks of sugar and juice. A good lager, which I could imagine supping in pleasant Kreuzberg bars.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle, 4.8% abv, carried home from a shop on the air side of Schönefeld Berlin. Quickly disappearing, white head. Light golden body. Mild aroma of hay and pale malts. Modest taste of malts supported by notes of dried fruit. Smooth, oily palate. Half way pleased (Tromsø, 27.11.2009).
