2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
In tap from grocery store in Berlin. Not the biggest pilsner fan and found this to be very light bodied, with almost no taste yet with the hoppy finish as per other pilsners. Overall OK, but I would not buy again myself

I expected much more from the "flagship beer" of Berlin. Although the aroma is ok, the taste is a bit watery.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at several places throughout Berlin. Pours a clear, straw colored body with an inch thick, foamy and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is slightly oxidized with a light DMS note, some lightly sweetened pils malts, grass, and a few fruity hints. Flavor is better. Not as much oxidation or DMS. A bit grainy and lightly sweetened with an even grassiness throughout. Finishes dry and lightly bitter before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent pilsner. Nothing special, but not bad.

Berlin is awash with this Pilsner: has it taken the best of ’Berliner Kindl’ and ’Schulthesis Pils’ from the 80’s before the wall fell, or is it an all new super-brew made with the cheapest ingrediants available?
It’s not the former: it’s a basic golden, bright Pilsner with all the usual attributes; but nothing to stand it apart from all the rest. Crisp? Yes. Clean? Yes. Refreshing? Yes, but is it interesting? No.
