2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle [another "transloca(lisa)tion" due to bartlebier]. Clear golden colour with average, frothy, diminishing, white head. Strawy aroma with hints of plain bitter hops. Taste is grainy, subtle pale malty sweetness, plain bitter hoppy overtones, slightly metallic, "asymptotically scratching the edge to soapy".

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle courtesy of Matthias, thanks! This came in a case decorated as an Advent calendar. You open a cardboard door each day in December and you get a different beer, all the way to Christmas. This one was 2 Dezember. Very plain and ordinary, though, even for a pils, with just a bit of straw in the aroma and flavor.

33cl elephant dongle-shaped, local. Poor and green-metallic Pilsner, grainy, with rough sulphuric edges overpowering hops, with a macro feel from a medium brewery.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20

Thick white head. Clear pale golden pour. A nice bottle but a boring pilsner.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: bread; Appearance: clear urine, minimal head; Taste: slight bitterness, slight sourness; Palate: abrupt finish, fizzy carbonation
A mediocre German pilsener, the best thing about the beer is its cool bottle design. Bad metallic aftertaste.
