2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Was super thirsty, and although I had a backpack full of high-potency Belgos from Ambrosetti’s, wanted a cold beer on the train out of Berlin. Could not have been more disappointed. Watery, lawn-mower beer with a waft of bitter hops at the finish (not elegant hops like a recent draft Bitburger). Even in a moment of dire thirst, it was hard to choke down - - a real chug-only with no redeeming charms. I’m sticking to Jever, KöPi, and maybe Bit or Radeberger if I have to drink pils from now on.

Average big market Pilsener with nothing special about it. There´s nothing really bad about it, it was ok to drink when no other beer was available. It was also as unexciting as expected though.

From tap. Pours golden with medium white head. Aroma of grains, malts, grass. Medium body with average carbonation. Medium to light bitter taste. Yet another "purity law" beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The commercial deScription is remarkably ironic, I suppose. There is certainly nothing forward-thinking about this beer. Overly carbonated. Smells a bit like hay. Weirdly savoury. Meh.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light golden color. Clear. Very light aroma, a bit of maize, biscuit, and very little hops. Bright, dry and hoppy flavor. Hoppier than the average pilsner. Better than average for the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very good, fluffy white head leaving lacerings over clear metallic golden beer. Pale malts, dry but with a certain sweetness in the nsoe. The German word "Feinherb" catches it perfectly. Light sweetish main flavour, with a bitterish, faintly metallic, herbal hoppiness. Finish has also a point of DMS. Aftertaste returns with a bit of (white) bready sweetish-ness. Medium carbonation, light body, faintly slick. One of Germany’s classics. It’s a fluid cliché, but it works still.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale straw color with moderate activity. White 1 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with good legs.
Faint citrus smell. Flavors of sweet grains, corn, lemon, banana, honey, vegetal, herbal spices. Well balanced sweet taste with a nice sharp crispy feel. Grassy and slightly syrupy.
Medium body with prickly carbonation. Faint finish of medium length, ending with a slightly bitter and skunky noble spices.
Overall a decent craft with nice flavors, but a little faint, and some good freshness.

Clear yellow, medium head. Aroma: mostly grains, malt, almost no hops. Taste is malty, lightly sweet, with low but decent bitterness, better than in most cheap lagers, very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Słomkowe, klarowne piwo o obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie mgiełki. Aromat i smak głównie słodowy. Goryczka średnia. Ogólnie typowy niemiecki pils, szału nie ma, ale pije się przyjemnie.
