500ml Draft in Berlin: poured yellow with a thick white head. Light hop aroma, slight corn. Flavor is your averge run of the mill Germany lager. Amazingly I drank this quite quickly as I was dying of thirst. Slight hops, corn in the flavor. Mild bitter finish. Okay.

The bottle looks good, a little bit simple, but good. The beer in the glass also, not very much foam. The beer is very vapid, almost washy. Nevertheless drinkable. An average beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Remarkably pale, so that in slightly lower light than I’m pouring in, it would be quite easy to mistake for water. From a techincal perspective—well, I’d have a hard time making a beer that pale. From an aesthetics perspective, "that don’t impress me much". A modicum of white head that’s gone quickly. Vauge cereal aroma and a modest dose of herbal hops. Vaguely industrial grainy sweetness, uninspiring but not totally absent hops. Just a little more interest than the bland pale BMCs of the world. Come now Berlin—is this really your favorite beer?

Beer 93 Summer 2006 trip in Europe. Drank on 7/19/06 @ Fat Tire Bike Tours in Berlin, my free beer after being "The Ass Man" on our bike tour. Came in a small duvel like bottle. It was pretty lame but easy to drink after a long bike ride.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 5.0%. Slightly citric, but OK aroma. Clear golden colour, small white head. Full flavour with a strangely rough, but not very bitter finish.Quite close to a Danish standard pils, perhaps a bit cleaner.
