Lowenbrau (2150) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 20, 2014
500ml can, somewhere in time. From old notes.
In short: average pilsener.
Another boring pilsener, nothing remarkable.

stevoj (2330) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Catch up rating. Pours pale gold with a an airy short-lived head. The aroma is grass and some crackers. The taste is a pleasant mix of herbal, earthy noble hops and doughy pale malts. The bitterness is moderate but lasts a long while in the finish. The mouthfeel is light and prickly with carbonation, a little too much fizz here.This is a nice pilsner. Nothing particularly striking, but good balance and a competent hop profile. Worth trying.

5L mini-keg. Gold with a film of head. Smells like pilsener - grassy. Maybe a little sweeter than some. Nicely carbonated. Smooth. Mild. Tastes like it smells, grassy and grainy. Not much going on.

Clear golden body, white quickly disappearing head. Rather soft carbonation. Aroma is malty and sweetish but the taste has pleasant bitterness; hoppy flavors of grass and herbs. (0, 33l bottle at the TXL Airport lounge.)
