UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 I can remember drinking König Pils as a kid in Germany. There was a chain of pubs around the country called "König City" which featured this beer. And you know, it was pretty tasty. But nowadays, it tastes like a watered down Pils with low bitterness, no hop aroma and very little body. I mean, they even admit to an original gravity of 11.3°Plato which is just a joke. Too bad really, but this is a general trend in Germany and there is no hope in sight. Clean, drinkable, but totally boring. How do you make a low quality beer, but still follow the German Purity Law of 1516? Just use less of everything.

Pale yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is a little skunked. Cereal grains, malty. Taste is cereal malt, crisp, dry finish. Nice lacing.

33 cl systembolaget. Ytterligare en helt smaklös lager som enbart fungerar i en varm bastu och allt vatten tagit slut

Dark gold coat with bright and refreshing notes and an interesting sweetness. Nice bitterness adds up to the overall apprecitation. Good pilsner and I liked it less than the Wesnesgruner which I thought had a more balanced taste.

0,5l tölkki Axelin häissä. Kirkas pissankeltainen. Tuoksussa mallasta, festaribajamajoja. Tuoksuu basic lagerilta. Festariolut. Maussa geneeristä mallasta, ei juuri muuta. Liian kevyt.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2014 Excelente cerveja. Pilsner de verdade. Cerveja clara, com amargor equilibrado. Se sente o malte presente.
