Review: Bottle of Friedenfelser Pils Leicht 2.80%ABV
With Germany bound to do well in my drinking World Cup I decided to try a light Pils to save on the stronger stuff for later on. The last time I drank beer as low as this was from one of the Tesco branded cheap lagers, bought it out of curiosity, needless to say it was rotten. So wasn’t expecting a whole lot from this light Pils. Boy was I wrong, it was delicious and had a great aroma, a very pleasant surprise from a beer with only 2.8% ABV. A lot of taste and smells and little alcohol. Which shows that Friedenfelser made the effort for the light drinker.
The appearance is a perfect clear pale yellow body with a smallish white head on top with fair lacing.
For me the smell was pretty good. As soon as the bottle was opened you get hit with a rustic sweet smell of malts and grains. Very enticing.
The taste is sour and sweet with pale malts and some hay, and with a fine bitterness in the end. A quite dry and refreshing beer and, as it a low alcohol Pils, it does a good job. Lots of flavor, easy to drink, with a nice hoppy finish.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Quite pale yellowish golden body, and a small, white head on top. Grainy and malty nose with some hay notes, not much hops detected. There’s a little bitterness in the initial flavor, along with pale malts and some hay. Medium to thin on the palate, and with a fine bitterness in the end. A quite dry and refreshing beer, but as most low alcohols, really boring. 111106

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle looks very simple, beer in the glass deep golden, small head. Starts very spicy, moldy-earthy, metallically, quite sourish-soapy. Bahh! Finish a bit milder, but still too moldy-grasy. Not good.
