Fisler (191) - GERMANY - JUL 5, 2015
Die tropischen Temperaturen verlangen derzeit nach einem leichten Bier - da fiel der Griff zur schmucken Flasche leicht. Also rein ins Baströckchen und auf den Kronkorken. Optisch schonmal nicht der Hit, gold halt, klar, Pale Lager eben, wie soll das denn anders sein - kein Schaum, aber zumindest nicht durchsichtig. In der Nase überraschend malzig, nicht so reisig-maischig, wie vergleichbare Biere. Im Trunk die positive Überraschung, das Bierchen hat mehr Charakter, als ich erwartet hätte. Malzig, sogar holla, kernig, und im ganz kurzen Abgang sogar bitter. Das passt schon in der Hitze, sollte aber wohl nicht zu warm werden.

Can from Carrefour, drunk 4/23/15
Really just knocking off a Tahiti rate and had super low expactions. Thankfully this was actually quite good. No flaws to it which is always a plus and well-enough attenuated. While it could be a touch more dry, as most industrial pale lagers could, the bit of extra maltiness, which importantly, tastes of actual malt, isn’t unwanted. Moderate carbonation, light bitterness and just a touch of grassy and peppery hoppiness. Clear gold with a large white head that recedes to cover. Fine, drinkable. One could do much worse than drink this on a beach in Tahiti.
