Was meant to buy the bottle only, but this one is actually far better than I supposed. Nice hints of malt and honey, rather than grainy like bud. The taste was fresh and flavorful, too. As the smells suggested.

33 cl "Plopp"-Flasche, goldenes Bier, weißer, feinporiger Schaum, der sofort in sich zusammenfällt. Leicht hopfig, ansonsten geschmacksneutral

Copenhagen 26/3 2015. 33 cl bottle from my brother in law visiting Germany. Pours clear pale yellow with white head. Aroma is malty and little bit sharp. Slightly metallic. Medium carbonation. Taste is a little sharp, metallic and sour. Not the best from Flensburger. And not much "Gold" in 4,8 %.

33 cL bottle into an Orval glass. Golden, lightly gassy with a fluffy head. Very faint hoppy aroma. Dry and quite bitter. Its alright, a typical pale lager, but bland.

Sampled from a dumpy flip-top bottle. Full marks for packaging! Pours a tranlslucent yellow with a firm white head. The taste is light, pure and slightly sweet. Good malt flavours a beautiful subtle hop taste of newly-mown hay. A typical light German lager, but very well-made and with subtle flavours. Highly drinkable.

330 ml bottle. Commercial pale lagers usually suck, but this one is pretty cool. Sweet malt smell. Golden color with the sadly usual lager dizzy head. Taste is kind of sweet and very light. Inside your mouth is maybe too carbonated so you feel less, but is good. Finally, the bottle is great; I absolutely love the flip tops, so even if I get the worst beer in the planet, i’ll always give a few extra points for the packaging. Thanks Charles de Quillfeldt for such an amazing and beautiful way of closing a bottle!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 2A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 208246. AROMA: slight grainy malt aroma. no esters and no hop aromas discernible. some cardboard. APPEARANCE: light gold color and translucent. thin white head with below average retention. TASTE: diluted grainy flavour and slightly sweet. low bitterness with a semi-dry finish. PALATE: light body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: a bit diluted german pils like beer, without much character.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours gold with a thick white head. Aroma of light malt. Flavor is pretty much the same with almost zero hop flavor and a mild bitter finish. Clean flavors but not worth a repeat. Love the little swing top bottle though.

Ordinær og lidt kedelig øl. Trods dette bedste Pale Lager jeg har smagt. Udseende er meget indbydende og flosken er smuk
