06-Jun-07 (12 oz bottle: Purchased 01-Jun-07 at BevMo in La Jolla, CA) In a recent pilsener tasting I ran at my BevMo, KöPi was the crowd favorite, and I had no complaints either (though it wasn’t my favorite). Malty, grainy, lightly bready nose with a gentle hop fragrance. That breadiness is limited only to a background aroma and does not present itself in the flavor. Rather, this medium-bodied pilsener is decidedly malty with a hint of grain and a pleasant, mildly bitter Noble hop flavor and no bitter aftertaste. The delicate, but crisp hop character is what really makes this pilsener enjoyable to drink and refreshing on the palate. Medium-high carbonation has a soft mouthfeel. An inch of foamy, white head caps the golden body, but points off for being a bit hazy, even after the beer warms up a bit. I imagine this must be pretty nice on tap.

I remember drinking this on tap a a bar on Lincoln in Chicago. Seemed much wonderful then. Now at home in bottle, just not the same. Clear gold color, head dissipates. Light straw aroma, some hops. Decent body, not too bitter.

Can at Frankfurt Airport. Skunky nose aroma. Eggy, grassy. Tasted like just another pilsener to me. Should probably restaste on tap.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2007 Aroma not particularly strong. Very skunky, bitter. There is some malt flavour. Tastes cold, metallic. Leaves an unpleasant aftertaste, sour and a bit chemically. I was hoping this one to be better than the mainstream Beck’s, Warsteiner’s, etc, but in my opinion it is about in the same category, perhaps only a tiny bit better. It has the same metallic taste and much of the same unpleasant chemically aftertaste.
