3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 this beer available on tap: I order one of each and find a resting place.
My 0.3 Litre came looking a very dark brown with a red hue in the light, on top a flowing tanned crown that stayed around for a while.
The nose was malty, lightly roasted malts in fact giving off toffee and caramel esters.
The beer wasn’t as sweet as the aroma suggested, the malty molasses being kept in check by the hop bitterness that came mid-sip and stayed to give a good dry finish.
Like so many beers of this type, I found the body a little thin, it’s a style thing of course, but I just wish the brewers would give the beers more depth and strength of flavour.
This is fine though and one of the better German black Pilsners / Lagers I’ve had.
