3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very surprised to see this Pilsner (and its Dunkel sister) on tap in the Greenwich Union: the Meantime Brewery tap house: Oct 2011. Reason being, I’d never heard of the brewery before.
Had a half pint just to review it on here.
This is one of the better Pilsner beers I’ve had and was certainly an improvement on the London Lager and Helles that Meantime had up against it on tap in their bar.
This oozed classic Pilsner: the colour, smell, body and overall feel of it just seemed right. Served well and at a good chilled temp it slipped down far too well.
I’ll not go into great detail (I only had a half don’t forget and I was on a mission to try a few brews that day), but this is well worth finding and trying if you get the chance.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Moderate malt and hops notes of grain, straw, herbs and lemon peel, faint soap for the yeast, with cooked vegetable and pepper in the background. Head is average size, fizzy, white with fair thin lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear pale yellow. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic and lightly bitter, and the fairly long finish is lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation. Broken down this Classic German Pilsener is nothing to write home about, but it is very refreshing, very true to style and went down very easy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a golden lager/pils color as expected w/ white head. Mildly hoppy aroma. A bit dull actually. Was slightly crisp, actually a bit smooth for a German Pils, thought there might be a little bit more crispy bite. Went down easy enough. Nothing remarkable.
