Koelschtrinker (17334) - 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

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2004
Hoppy, slighty soapy. Medium dry finish. Hints of sweetness and maltiness. Actually quite drinkable for a super-market Pilsener.

EithCubes (5618) - 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.

larsga (7296) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2008
Big offwhite lasting head. Yellow body with carbonation. Light malty oily papery aroma with rubbery notes. Dryish grainy papery taste. Quite light and delicate palate. Dry corn aftertaste. It’s OK, I guess. (0.5l PET bottle, Aldi Markt, Leipzig.)

edpeg (892) - 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.

Jonb5 (507) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2011
Light colour, clear, a bit of foam on the top. Industrial lager smell, also some hops. Bitter sweet taste, earthy, grassy. Lots of carbonation, not particulary smooth but ok. For 30 cents a half litre bottle you can’t expect a top quality brew but there are worse beers out there selling for a lot more

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Bought in Aldi in Germany, they may have different contractors for their Maternus brand? Fully golden with a huge head. Full-bodied, good malty feel and a very hoppy finish. Typical German in style. 271099

Kavu (4114) - 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.
