2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle in Bern. Clear yellow pour, thin white broken head. Seemed like more of a wheat beer than a lager! Medium sweet with quite low bitterness and not much at all on the palate. Quite drinkable on a hot summers day and deserves a higher rating IMO.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, thanks Bov! Clear pale golden, rich firm head. Slight aroma of husk and grass. Dryish with light body and clean mouthfeel. Grainy and slighly citric. Low bitterness. Highly inoffensive lager with some refreshing qualities.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Gurten Music Festival. Darker yellow color that nearly had a muddy quality closing on amber in some ways. Fluffy pure white head. Aroma of next to nothing, little bit of an herbal hop that’s about it. Flavor is a bit more hoppy than expected and certainly a bit better than other pale lagers out there. Very thin, watery body. Only palatable when one is very thirsty, tired of Cardinal, and/or the brew is served very cold.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled 50cl. Appearance: It pours a clear pale yellow beer. Not much lacework. Aroma: Chestnuts, lemonade, soy sauce and ginger showing up. Soapy. Flavor and palate: Cider-like with hints of lemonade and ginger. Watery. Acidic. Low bitterness. Soapy. Very poor malt and hop profile. Reminiscent burnt plastic in the finish. Overall impression: Very poor. Probably rather easy drinkable.

Light yellow colored, little white head. Basic lager with fruity nose and mild hoppy character. Thin to medium bodied, slightly watery palate. Flavor is more German-hopped with lemony fruits. Basic one.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Tap) Pours golden with almost no head. Rather bland, with some hoppy and malty aromas. Watery, and seemingly unbalanced.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale beer with a light white fizzy head and a lightly dry aroma. The flavour is lightly dry with a malty finish. Overall a reasonable beer.

2012-09-28, draught at Pibar, Lausanne, 6-3-6-3-14=32
Hazy blond color, with persistent head. Delicate and fresh aroma of malt. Smooth mouthfeel, delicate malt flavor, fresh, with light lemony touch, and correct bitterness.
It’s an efficient bière de soif.
What? Such beer from feldschlosschen??? I’m surprised.

Blond beer, with a nice Belgian lace. Pleasant hop aroma. The taste is quite boring, sweet, without the promised hop.

Now that this brewery is closed, the beer is still produced by Feldschlösschen (owned by Carlsberg) - clear pale golden colour, few head, few hops, very few bitterness, a hint of plastic flavour and no character at all - good job by Feldschlösschen: they have kept the original recipe unchanged ...
