(Bottle). Damn! Unpleasant smell of acidic urine, diacetyl, butterscotch,
wet grass and malt. Strange taste of grainy malt, some citrus and grassy hops with a dry and rough bitterness in the finish. Completely undrinkable!

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
PET plastic bottle 0,5l. Pours pale yellow clear body with white medium rocky head. Aromas include citrus, hops, malts, grains. Texture is watery, crispy, with medium lively fizzy carbonation and mouthfeel. Taste is mild, balanced and malty. Finish is slightly floral, citrusy hoppy, hints of dryness. For price and quality very good. No off-flavours etc. Better than normal Maternus pils.

Bought each of these half-liter Maternus beers from an Aldi for €0,29 plus a €0,25 deposit - it’s a first for me that the deposit almost exceeded the list price. Plastic bottle with a plastic screw cap, pissy pale golden, tiny white head. Nose is lightly grain but not sweet, lightly grassy and stale. Medium body is flattish, surprisingly dry with just a touch of rubbery bitterness coming on at the end. Surprisingly good hops for a German lager, burps remind me of some of Victory’s pales. Perfectly suitable choice for camping or sporting (because of the container), mild and inoffensive. Had to up the rating, I would totally buy this in volume.
