Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Ariel. Clear yellow. Aroma of graininess, hay, and grassy/herbal hops. Slightly sweetish grainy flavor with a bitterish herbal hops finish. Quite light-bodied.

Une blonde bien pâle, coiffée d’une mousse typique qui laisse des traces sur la paroi du verre. Une nez de grains, de malt et de fleurs champêtres (en y mettant de l’effort) Un goût de céréales, c’est acidulé, légèrement amer où on peu sentir des infiltrations de miel ou de sirop de maïs. C’est pétillant et minéral. (1472-080615)

Lounge at the Berlin Airport, 5/25/15. It’s still last night at home, and I haven’t slept yet, so call this a Sunday night beer! Clear gold color with a small white head. Light grass hop and hay aroma. Similar flavor, lightly sweet and light-medium bitter. Clean and easy drinking. Lively carbonation. Decent enough.

ghawener (1542) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - APR 12, 2015
Bottle: Drank after a visit to the Zupspitze, Pils is not that popular in Bavaria though you’ll always find at least one option but mainly in bottles (not draft). Food Pairing: Flammkuchen

Couleur or, légère mousse blanche. Nez houblonné, note d’herbes, colle. Gout houblonné, un peu épicée avec amertume astrigente en fin de bouche. Corps moyen. Decevant pour une pils.
