I drove all day form Vilnius (Lithuania) across Poland to Germany. When I found penzion and sat with bottle of Berliner Kindl, I found myself in Heaven. So, my marks can be little bit higher, that this beer is worth.

On tap at Zur Letzten Instanz, Berlin, on 28th September 2009. Crystal clear gold with white head. Delicious hoppy bite, zingy mouthfeel and refreshing with longish aftertaste.

I enjoyed plenty of currywust when I was in Berlin. My friend is a currywurst fanatic, and every time he goes to Berlin, he gets his fix. You must try currywurst at least once if you visit Berlin, and if you do, you will need a nice cold beer to wash it down. A good choice is Berliner Kindl Pils brewed by the Berliner Kindl Brauerei AG (Oetker Group) of Berlin. This is a very popular beer in Berlin, and is a well made, very drinkable pilsner, that matches well with currywust, and makes for a good drinking beer.
Berliner Kindl Pils pours to a beautiful, bright, golden color with a bright white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose on this beer is balanced with mild grassy/herbal hop aroma paired with hints of crisp pilsner malt. The palate is crisp and clean with good pilsner malt flavor on a smooth and round body. Berliner Kindl Pils finishes with more crisp malt flavor, then ends with a gentle hop bitterness that balances.
This is a well done pilsner, that is clearly brewed to appeal to a number of tastes. I would have enjoyed a bit more hop character, but I still enjoyed this one, and it really was a great beer to wash a currywurst down with. This beer can be found everywhere in Berlin, and I enjoyed an ice cold half liter can with my currywurst, at a little currywurst shack called Check Point Curry right outside the Friedrichstrasse train station.

from bottle, can and tap. a very kind a smooth taste. after one week in Berlin, this real ’Berliner drink’ just possessed me. this is the most common beer for Berliners, and it somehow recalled the taste of the first beers i ever had as a teenager. it’s really cheap if you get it in backshops or malls (less than 1 €), otherwise, the price runs up in bars.

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.
