MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2012
Plastic bottle shared with McTapps. Nose of a bit hops mixed with an aroma of malt and tobacco. Again - a nithugg saying cheap "gold" beer.

(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!

edpeg (873) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2012
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.

EithCubes (5304) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2012
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.

Kavu (3291) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2011
Pours clear golden with a high head. Light aroma of malts, well balanced flavor of malts. Surprisingly a bit better than the normal pils.

Koelschtrinker (14076) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Geruch wie erwartet - selbst Wasser duftet mehr. Die Aromen sind Goldbier-typisch nicht gerade stark ausgeprägt, doch wundert mich bei diesem Billigbier ein tatsächlich vorhandenes, für Goldbier überraschend starkers herbes Aroma, welches den Mittelteil bestimmt. Im Abgang ist es auch noch zu schmecken, außerdem schmeckt es dort leicht dumpf. Maternus überrascht mich ein zweites Mal. Test vom 8.6.2006, Gebinde: PET Noten: 6,9,9,9,6,9 - 8,55

Hansen (8092) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2011
Yellow and clear. Has a white head, mostly diminishing. Aorma is malty, sweet, grain, faint hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet, finish moderate bitter. Watery, dry texture. Soft carbonation.
