2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light blond color; big head, but with egg-white texture. The aroma has both some hop and some corn. Dry mouthfeel, but smooth; there are shades of noble hops, along with a flavor that is a bit corn-ish; it’s also quite earthy (grass and manure, light). Not too bad.

33cl bottle bb07/2014, Edeka Olgastrasse. Revisiting this +3 years after my last regular encounters with this everywhere in D-0711. Your typical once-regional, now Radeberger-owned standard Pilsner: straw, dry grains, just enough hops (no extract in this case: bonus point) to elevate it above lager/Helles level. Finishes on a surprising mineral and old lemon note, indeed McTapps. With Hofbräu there always was this metallic and stale quality that made it 2nd choice, even in my swilling days.

bottle. Clear golden yellow, mid-sized head. Malty and hoppy, a bit thin, not overwhelmingly full-flavoured. There is a fruity hint present, slightly sourish. Has its own character.
