1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
0.5l can, Finkbräu Pilsener, 4.8%, brewed by Oettinger, bought at the local Lidl store (Split).
Poured a light golden colour with a medium sized white thick chem head that went away fast. Nose, grainy malt and some apple. Taste... dry papery malty taste with weak notes of apple. Very weak chewy and just a touch lemony hopiness that continues in the aftertaste. Way less offensive than its Schankbier brother but damn dull and simple. They aren’t even the cheapest beers around. Blah.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear yellow-golden, topped with a medium to small white frothy head, almost no real retention. Malty aroma, some mild grassy notes, nothing else. Taste starts sweet, some grassy feel in the body, watery, mild bitterness and bit metallic. Not unplesant or anything, but just not in the rank with other pilsners. Cheap, though.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottiglia. Intensità olfattiva elevata. Persistenza olfattiva discreta. Gusto al naso: orzo. Il cappello di schiuma con bollicine medie è destinato a sparire nel breve tempo, però si presenta compatto, cremoso e con merletti. Frizzantezza medio-bassa ma insistita e data da bollicine di media grandezza. Colore giallo dorato, limpido. Amaro moderato. Fluidità ok. Corpo medio. Struttura sottile. Equilibrio tra dolce medio e amaro medio. Intensità gustativa normale e persistenza gustativa sufficiente. Sensazioni boccali finali: beverina.

33 cl can. My father used to buy this nasty stuff . Brewed by Oettinger Bier Gruppe. Um that explains quite a lot. Watery and strong metallic flavour( even for canned beer.)

Drank at S&G big pilsener tasting, blindly comparing 24 pilseners. Taste for most pilseners was the same, some grains, bit hoppy, quite malty and mostly bit metallic.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
can from lidl alcudia, mallorca, spain. No mention of what the brewery is, but the can says "Lidl Stiftunng & Co. KG, Stiftsbergstr. 1 D-74167 necarsulm"
also this can is 4.7% not 4.9 - perhaps lidl changed the brewer?
the barcode number on the can is 20040123 - a lidl internal number, does not reveal the brewer.
clear yellow, large smooth offwhite head.nice slightly aromatic aroma, dry pils malty, really nice aroma. flavor is sweet lager, really nice flavor, but towards the end it gets way too metallic.
