Pint in Berlin - €3.00:
Not a bad lager but definitely not a great one and not exactly worth trying when you compare it to the countless other German lagers out there that I would rate much higher than this one. The beers biggest asset was how easy it was to drink but it was a fairly boring beer in the long run with the taste and smell both seeming a little weak and uninteresting. Worth a try if you’re in Berlin, mainly because you can’t avoid the stuff but this one was a fairly forgettable beer without being a bad one.

Well-balanced pils, (CO2 and bitterness). This is suitable to drink in 1.0l glass with couple of currywurst. Rather elegant pilsener from Berlin.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Old and traditional northern German lager that has apparently been brewed since 1902 (though not yet by Kindl-Schultheiss back then). Snow white, equal, not too stable head, colour a light golden blonde, cristal clear with fine sparkling. Sweetish pale malts in the nose, bit grainy too as well as a yeasty sourishness (sourbread) and cheesy and grassy hops. Lightly malty and grainy taste with quite sharp CO2, smooth and mineral-like, ’crispy’ with a relatively firm grassy and peppery hop bitterness in the finish, that keeps lingering long enough to make this an adequate, though stereotypical Pilsener. Pure, honest and thirst-quenching, what more can one expect from a lager...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at a pub in Berlin. The colour is clear straw with a medium, soap-like, off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, hay, grass and some citrus. Light flavour of pale malt, hops and some sweet corn. Nice sweetness in the end. Slick mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. A light but balanced and nice pilsener.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle at home, into a lager glass. ABV 5%
I had this in Berlin too but I lost my notes, glad I found another bottle.
Clear golden yellow colour on the body, tall white head, thick and soapy with very good retention. Intense activity in the glass. Light lacing left behind after the foam has collapsed.
Aroma of fresh straw, light grass, malts.
Tastes the same, maybe a bit too malty, light bitterness on the finish along woth metal notes.
Medium thin body, average carbonation. Quite dry palate.
Overall okay, refreshingly nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gyllengul öl med vitt skum. Doft av säd, lite gräs och maltig sötma. Något sötare än många tyska pilsner men ändå en trevlig bitter beska i avslutningen.
