2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body and a small, off-white head. Weak aroma with pale malts, grass and hay, some flowery hints. A bit thin on the palate, and a bit too hard carbonation, but the flavor is quite nice. Pleasant bitterness towards the end, with pale malts, fruityness, grass, some pine cones and a faint flowery touch. Lasting bitterness in the end. I would like it more pronounced and fuller in the body, else it’s a nice pilsner. 111126

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.
