My beer is called" Pinkus Original Obergärig Alt" This beer name is an alias of Pinkus Münstersch Alt . On the pour the nose is tin and grass with malt. Taste-wise it is not too bad. Lots of upfront carbonation. (If you roll this beerr in your mouth you will pick up bubblegum). Starts malt and a bit too sweet, quickly goes to citrus and lemon-grass, finish is dry. A pretty good hot weather beer.

Helder geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zuur met grassen, noot en bessen. Apart bier, best goed.

500 ml bottle. Looks like a run of the mill pale lager, but the aroma and taste prove otherwise. Light biscuit aroma with a hint of citrus. The flavor has more citrus, which here seems like lime, and adequate grain flavor. Light bodied but not watery with near medium carbonation.

Bottle: Light straw with some subtle haze. Pours with a medium head that dissipates quickly. No lace. Clean pale malt aromas. Very simple and clean. No complexity from the fermentation or hops. There is a subtle apricot aroma. Very dry, not sour and moderately low bitterness. There’s a roundness to the mouthfeel. High CO2 gives a freshness and acidity. Clean and refreshing.

Sweet malt bready aroma. Dark milky burned orange body. No head aside from a few stray bubbles. Sweet tangerine-like sweetness. Mild bitterness. Some maltiness in the background. Seems like a radler. Kind of disappointed by this one.

ogivlado (6473) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 14, 2015
Bottled 500ml. -from Rudat Dortmund. I’ve spent last few years chasing for Pinkus Müller beers and now when I finally found them all three are just average (Original, Hefe Weizen and Pils). Pitty. Yellow coloured, medium sized white head, dusty and weak malty nose. Sweet malty, slight caramel, mild fruity and hoppy with short finish.

Visiting Münster so had to check out the local classic. We got to the hotel, dropped our stuff, and walked straight to the brewpub. Pretty quiet Saturday afternoon in March, cold and rainy outside, perfect for a German feast accompanied by great beer. Started out with the classic alt. Loved it. Somewhere between a Dusseldorf alt and Kolsch, and with that characteristic tanginess. Really nice beer - super easy-drinking and unique.

[2/19/15] Bottle at the hotel in San Diego. Clear golden. Yeasty aroma with grape jam and lots of cardboard oxidation. Sweet flavor, fruity, yeasty, with lots of cardboard. Rather light-bodied. No freshness date, but it seems way too old.
