1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled 500ml. -Courtesy of and shared with Doggythedog (thanks!). Really interesting brewing process; watering down beer. Pale yellow coloured, brief white head, neutral nose (hmmm, watery nose maybe???). Weak malty, slight grainy and metallic with, of course, watery palate. Unnecessary product.

One of bigger gripes of the less beer-savvy people is how the beer they drink in pubs somehow gets watered down by the cheating brewery/owner/bartender/pink elephant. It’s usually a negative notion, but the good folks of Puntigamer decided to market a beer that’s exactly that. Regular beer, watered down. Watered down with what’s apparently crystal clear spring water, not tap water, so that’d be an improvement in their minds I guess. Though I wonder if anyone would dare to make beer with spring water that wasn’t crystal clear. And proudly state schlammtrübem Quellwasser on the label. I’d buy that. Anyway, this poured a pale yellow body (surprise surprise) with a small thick white head, pierced by lively carbonation. Vague eggy-grainy nose. Weak watery egg-grain taste, vague hopiness, bitter-acidic. There’s something about it that might be called bitterness in a way, but it might be light carbonation bite. All in all, WTF and WHY?

Draught at Falstaff-Bierfestival: The barkeeper mentioned, that this one is a "Saurer Radler" (beer with 30% water). Light sourly, bit empty aroma. Pale golden color, nearly no head. Flavor is fresh, sparkling but also quite emthy. Thirst quentching but empthy.
