2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear light yellow, large bubbles, large white head. Smells like beer, nothing special. Taste is sharply bitter grass or herb. There are hints of grain underneath, but they’re almost completely masked by the bitter. Harsh on the tongue.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ratskrone Premium Export - brewed for EUCO GmbH Hamburg. Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, fast dying head. Starts malty and dry, metallically, more and more moldy. Soapy finish, quite unbalanced. Not good.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown half-litre bottle: best before 11th Dec 2012, drank on 20th July 2012, the third ’Ratskrone’ beer of the tasting evening.
Light golden body, clear, bright and clean looking: full, deep head of white bubbles sat majestically on top.
Nose is a bit ’iffy’, some metallic hints and hop extract aromas.
The taste is on the sweet side, not sure if it is a malt induced sweetness or added sugar, I suspect the later (although it has been brewed to ’Dem Deutschen Reinheitsgebot’). No metallic flavours in the mouth, glad about that!
Maybe I’m being unkind: this isn’t as bad as I appear to have stated and it is certainly a whole lot better than the ’Premium Pilsner’ from Ratskrone.
