1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tastes more trashy lager than Deutsch pils. Looks mostly lifeless, with only a few bubbles supporting a very short lived head. Pathetic aroma with some metal and a touch of grain. A touch of raw bitterness and sugar sweetness, but it doesn’t last very long thankfully. Very disappointing, but not surprising given how cheap it was even in this country!!

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light yellow color. Small-medium head.Small carbonation. A bit malty aroma. Taste is drinkable in the beginning, then getting worse and worse. It is actually sweet. Nothing special about the palate. Regular mass beer...

I just read that this is germany’s best sold beer. that surprises me, since in the Netherlands it is sold as a b brand bij Lidl. and it is actually an okay beer. It is on equal footing with every other bulk lager in the Netherlands.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thin beer. Not an alluring aroma. Metallic taste. Some malt, with a hint of sweetness. Minimal head, not great carbonation. No real front end at all.

500ml bottle. Brewed under licence by MPK (recently I read that they have a 40-year contract to brew Oettinger beer). Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is malt and grass, as is the taste. Light sweetness. An ok pils.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2016 Bottle. Pours yellow/gold color with small-medium white head which doesn?t last too long. Aroma is metallic, grassy and grainy. Flavor is the same with more pronounced hop character. Light body. Some toasty notes in finish. Overall: as expected. Boring

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2016 Los Cristianos, Tenerife 21/3 2016. 50 cl can from Hiper Dino
Market. A big Gold medal on the can and a lot of assurance that this is indeed a German Beer including a label in black, red and golden yellow saying "Original German Beer". I think that they get a lot of German tourists on Tenerife. Pours clear pale yellow with big white head. Settles rather quickly as very thin almost transparent layer of foam. Very moderate lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma of sweet malts with a sharp sour note. Cereals and grains are prominent. Soft carbonation and watery palate. Taste is balanced between subdued malty sweetness and medium bitterness. It might be original and German but it is also a rather boring German pilsner to be honest. But way better than many of the lagers you can pick up around these quarters.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Anständiges Pils, kaum Bitternoten, hohe Carbonisierung. Irgendwie dumpf im Geschmack, wie alter Hopfen. Sorry, Oettinger ist nichts für mich, auch wenn es Deutschlands meistgetrunkenes Bier ist. Soviel zum Durchschnittsgeschmack.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2016 .3l pour from tap into tiny pils glass in Kazakhstan. Clear, light orange yellow, light white head, decent carbonation. Nose is lightly sweet and musty malty. Body is light and almost crisp. Taste is mild-- almost a hint of bitter, but not quite. Easy to drinking, but nothing super appealing.
