2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
18th Jan 2014 and I find myself in the Saxony-Anhalt presentation area of Berlin’s International Green Week. I spied a bar from Landsberg and venture over, Pilsner and a Swartz beer available on tap: I order one of each and find a resting place.
My 0.3 Litre Premium Pilsner came a golden bodied, clear and clean, bright beer with a fast fading snowy white crown.
The aroma was also typical of German Pilsners, there was very little of anything in the nose. Gets my usual 3 score for a non smelling Pilsner / lager.
The taste leaned towards a maltiness but the hops stopped any sweetness from taking over the flavouring: this a dry, refreshing beer with a bitter finish: very little actual taste.
Nothing wrong with this beer, it just seemed a normal, bog standard, ordinary sort of brew with no features to pick up on, good or bad.
