Bottle shared with McTapps. A tough one for sure. Bit of grains, the rest is just dull and full of cheap bitterness. No way in drinking that one again.

McTapps (5363) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden colour with low head and crisp body. Unpleasant nose of bitterness. Taste of bitter hops, old barley, grass and old citrus peel. Hard to drink with a very dry and bitter finish.

pours clear pale yellow with a nice frothy white head, some retention and lacing. bready and lightly sugary malts, bit of corn, hay and grass, maybe some apple juice. faint nobleness and flowers. average carbonation, light body - slightly watery, short but present and almost bland herbal-citrusy finish. meh - DP.

500ml can bought at Biere Von Irene in Yuen Long.

Light golden honey colour; One finger head and white foam which last for 2 minutes; Minimal lacing with active carbonation; Aroma of sweet malt, with light bread, citrus and straw; Light sweet taste of thin malt, with lemon, light lime, straw, and hint of liquorices; Mid to light body, not so thin and slick palate. Mouth feel is more like a very well make, thicker body pale lager, free of sugar and any foul tastes; Hoppiness is fairly light on citrusy smell and taste, and very low but present astringency; Fairly dry after taste, crisp and very easy to mouth.

Comments: This one stays pretty true to the Pilsner style - very well attenuated, almost free of wort sugar, clean and crisp. The lows being low hoppiness, and not really something special. That said, being middle of the road has its advantages, as regular quaffable lager, I will pick this one over other macros any day.

Big hed that don’t last. Looks like a golden/pale lager with some carbination a little at time’s. Smells of lager but not typical eruo lager and apple juice. Don’t taste as watery as one would think and must have a lot of hops its a filling heavy beer. Taste I don’t like makes me thik of apple juice and baby shit.

lesifflebiere (1412) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2013
Conventionnelle, avec une couleur jaune or et paille, lit de mousse qui disparaît rapidement, et limpidité parfaite dans un liquide mince. Houblon et cretons à l’odeur. Sucrée, amère, et effet "Perrier". À défaut d’aller au fond des choses, la Fürstenberg va droit au but : pilsner extrêmement simple, presqu’unidimensionnelle, elle désaltère le buveur sans jamais le pousser à essayer de prononcer son nom correctement pour une prochaine fois.

Tricker (322) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
Bière blonde de 4.8 % d’alcool. Elle ne possède aucun col au versement. Elle possède un odorat du style O’Keefe. Elle possède un arrière-goût amer, mais un bon goût de houblon. Elle possède un goût amer du style citron et/ou limette. Correcte !

Viper666 (2787) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2013
Canette 500ml. De couleur dorée pâle et claire. Nez de grains de malt pâle, léger de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses ainsi que de très faibles notes de pain. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement aqueuse. Faibles traces fruitées (zeste de citron) avec un goût de grains de malt pâle croustillants lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement des notes de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve un goût légèrement amer de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses (herbes fraîches) asséchante. Post-goût moyen et moyennement sec, légèrement amer de houblon floral et aux notes herbeuses avec de très faibles notes de grains.
