2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Packaging and Serving - Poured from a 50 cl bottle into a TeKu glass @ home
Aroma - Little intense and little persistent smell. Straw and fresh grass aroma, and citrus notes. Hints of DMS
Appearance - Clear golden color. White head with mix of fine and coarse bubbles, quite persistent foam.
Taste - Medium to low intensity and medium persistent taste. At the beginning the sweetness of malts seems to be well balanced by the bitterness of the hops. Light sourness. At the end is disappointing because it lasts too sweet and aftertaste is of boiled vegetables.
Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Light body.
Overall impressions - Easy beer, drinkable but not a masterpiece.
Food - Suitable to every kind of food.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a white cap. Smell is grain, sweet light malt. Taste is quite sweet, grain with some crispness coming on late. Light body average carbonation. A bit disappointing as it was too sweet without the nice hop counterbalance that makes for a good pilsner.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottles, Störtebeker sampler Maruhn. Compared to their other beers, there is something oddly sub-par about this pils. Decently hopped, with the right colour, carbonation and foam, but a metallic mouthfeel and strange, overroasted malts (toast, grains, dried nuts?) give this pilsener a dry and unpleasant twist; also lacks roundness.
