En mycket generell öl. Det specifika får inget utrymme i denna öl, som är mer framgångsrikt i att hitta minsta gemensamma nämnare än att någonting annat - som att identifiera sig och visa att den har något som kan kallas eget. Karaktärsdragen är snarare som vaga signalement.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow and hazy. Bready with fruity notes. Doughy soft beer with light fruity hop character. Low bitterness. Interesting - reminds of some USSR brewpub lagers.

Draft @ brewpub. Nice medium gold with chill haze, thick foamy head. Aroma is fresh, mildly worty, clean and cerealy. Lacking in the hop department. Clean palate, smooth and soft. The flavors come through with a surprisingly hoppy punch, making this a balanced, honest German-style lager. Very nice malt character with floral hops to boot.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Legend Beer, Hanoi. Golden with creamy white head. Hoppy aroma and malty flavours. Not great balance here though it could do with a touch more malt. Bitter, hoppy finish. I wasn’t a big fan of this pils.

Draught@Hoan Kiem/City center location.
Golden color, good creamy head. Brewing mash, malts and ash in the nose. Harsh alcoholic flavor with some hoppyness. Some brewing mash too in the flavor. Not very personal, but has at least some kick in it. I was not as excited as Per.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Draught at Legend, HoanKiem location. Hazy pale golden, rich creamy head. Evident grassy nose. Very dry, crisp and grainy with lots and lots of grassy German hops. Strict and correct, an unfiltered arch-German pilsener. Extremely dry and bitter. If there’s anything to complain about it would be that the ligh tbody struggles to uphold the bitterness, which makes it slightly metallic. An excellent effort and a bit of a change of pace with a German style beer in Hanoi, wher nearly all brewpubs are strongly rooted in the Czech tradition.
