UPDATED: JAN 27, 2015 Bottle 0,33L. Have a 3-4 bottles of this on in Hotel Vetter in Nurtingen, Germany. Clear, pale golden colour with small, fully lasting, frothy, white head. Bread and biscuits aroma. Taste starts light acidic, than turns to medium bitter with grassy finish . Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Very good German Pilsner.

Pale yellow with a white head. Definitely one of the better german pilsener, quite hoppy for this style of beer with a nice bitter finish. I also quite liked the retro design of the bottle

WillemsUrenkel (838) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2014
0,33 l bottle. Clear and very pale golden in the glass. Small fine foamy head. Hope and grain on the nose. Starts with a short hop taste, followed by a more grainy sequence. Sour hints. Not that herb hop bitterness, that we are knowing here in int northwest of Germany. More a decent one out of the southwest. Little bit thin ending.

Very old backlog rating. 33cl bottle from A Tutta Birra, Milano. It pours a pale golden color with a small white head. Aroma is grainy grassy lightly bready. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, quite crispy and grassy. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, decent

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 33cl @ bottle. Si sente solo l’amaro, birra abbastanza inutile. Ok è dissetante, ma evitabilissima.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2014 Review: 0.33 l Bottle of Rothaus Pils TannenZäpfle, 5.1%ABV The great classic Germany pils with the super cool “old school” style label on the iconic 0.33 bottle format. This is a very popular beer, a cult brand, this beer from the Black Forest. Aroma was quite strong to be honest, took me aback a little, wow. The grassy hops and citrus hitting the senses very quickly. A strong and clean earthy and grainy smell picked up. This aroma woke me up alright! On the appearance side of things the beer looks pretty damn good. Very clean and pure looking, pouring a nice pale yellow colour. Head is pretty decent, nice and frothy, with a little lacing. A real good looking pilsner, with a nice crystal clear body. The taste was very interesting, strong with a slightly malty initial taste to it, which lingers in the mouth. Some cereals, a hoppy finish and an equally strong bitter hoppy aftertaste. The beer had a very strong depth to it, and a lovely crisp feel in the mouth. The beer definitely grows on you and after a few more scoops I started to enjoy this beer. Was a good well balanced tasting beer, from the start to the finish, an interesting experience from the Black Forest.
