2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
18th Jan 2014 and I’m at Berlin’s annual International Green Week and I wandered into one of the exhibition halls to be confronted by a huge Stortebeker bar in the form of a large boat: Their Pilsner being one of the beers available on tap. It being the weakest I asked for a 0.3 litre (I was on a drinking mission and strong beers were not really an option).
The beer came looking like your usual golden, clean and clear Pilsner, with the typical white fading head.
The nose seemed stronger than most German Pilsners, this had a floral, herbal and grainy aroma.
The actual taste was weak, not much going on: refreshing enough but lacked any real flavours, good or bad. I decided it was a bog standard Pilsner with a better smell than most, but with ’run of the mill’ attributes otherwise.
Nothing to set it apart from thousands of similar brews, which is a shame.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Typical golden pilsner color, with fine cabronation and quickly dissipating head. Fresh aroma. Taste is pretty straightforward, bitter with sharp grassy notes. The palate is a bit sharp/alcoholic on the end.

Pours medium yellow. Almost no head. Aroma is grassy. Not very complex flavor, even for a pilsener. Sticky, harsh finish.
