Gröninger Pils
On tap at the brewpub. Bready malty smell. Similar taste, light toasty. Clean and drinkable but nothing special.

Gröninger Pils
Pours hazy, copper, surprising since it’s simply announced as a pils. A nice caramel roasty smell and taste, well balanced. Some salt.

Gröninger Pils
A cloudy, dark orange red coloured beer with a weak white head. A light malty aroma, bready and nutty with a hint of caramel. Medium dry mouthfeel. A mild, quite sweet malt flavour, dark bread, nutty and caramel, followed by a zesty hop bitterness that tempers the sweetness, leaving a refreshing flavour in the finish. Draught @ Gröninger Braukeller, Hamburg.

Gröninger Hanseaten Weisse
A cloudy mid orange coloured beer with a thick white head. A light wheat beer aroma, clove spice and banana with a hint of grassy hop. Dry mouthfeel. A dry wheats flavour, with the expected clove and banana, but again, a tart, zesty hop element comes through adding a refreshing taste to the finish. Draught @ Gröninger Braukeller, Hamburg.

Gröninger Pils
Keg at the brew tap, Hamburg, 16/07/15. Lightly hazed orange amber with a decent off white covering that retains well. Nose is malt, bread, light caramel, fruit rinds. Taste comprises caramel, fruit loaf, pastry, butterscotch, dried apricot. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok stuff, not sure why they call it a pils, a pretty malty - dark fruity #.

Gröninger Weihnachtsbier "Das Pinneberger Winterwunder"
Small chalk board between the brew kettles in the beer keller advertised the availability of this brew: no mention on the menu or from the serving lady. 0.4litre draught on 11th Dec 2014. Cloudy amber body with a plum like sweetness in both the nose and taste, sweet and spicy feel throughout yet their was a dry finish and aftertaste: didn’t really enjoy it.

Gröninger Pils
11th Dec 2014, 0.4 litre on tap at it’s source, the Groninger Braukeller, Hamburg. Poured a misty amber golden colour with a white head that gave off some good lacing. Aroma came across as malty and grainy and semi-sweet in nature. The taste followed the same lines with a light sweet lead with a mini caramel feel.

3.1
Gröninger Pils
33cl bottle bb07/15, HH Bierland, one of few not heftily ransomed locals. Confidently copper, sweetish roast, honey and wort in the nose turn into a rich, roasty, nutty body of caramels, roasted nuts, marzipan, taking harsh unripe chestnut and helmgrass bitterness into unstable territory, lingering as if weirdly aromahopped. Overall rather unbalanced, but with character, like some of the best of life’s companions. What an accident of a pilsner, especially a Northern one, - yet what a singular Vienna! Nothing on the label warns that this is not an actual pils, hence hard to rate true to style. Caveat emptor/imbibor.

Gröninger Pils
From a 330ml bottle in Hamburg. This is not a pilsner despite the labelling - it is more like a Vienna lager with toasty sweet caramel malts and light citrus hops on the nose and tongue. Mild dry finish. Medium bodied. Dark amber appearance with a mostly lasting foamy off-white head. OK.

Thanks to WillemsUrenkel for that one! Bottle looks simple but okay. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Malty aroma. Starts quite malty, spicy, wheaty, light moldy-sourish. Notes of some fruits. Finish could be more balanced. Okay.

Seltsam anmutendes "Pils", das definitv ein Wiener ist. Dabei wird es aber derart übermalzt, dass es echt weh tut. Nee, brauchen wir nicht nochmal, finde ich.

Gröninger Blondes Sommerpils
White pillowy/fluffy lasting head with a hazy bright golden colour. Noses of orange/orange zest and banana with notes of floral hops. Rather flat on the tongue but slick/velvet on the palate developping a light bitterness and some more intense sweetness. Medium-full body, well balanced and smooth leaving a light coherent finish on the palate.

Gröninger Orange
Noses strongly of orange, for my liking a bit too artificial. Deep orange in colour with a light beige/white head. Light/medium body, lively and sweet on the palate with only light bitter notes. Slick in texture and the finish is fast. A refreshing beer for the summer.

Tap at the brewpub, murky brownish red with little head. Light fruit and wood notes on the nose, with hints of orange, strawberry and oak, carry through into the body. Faint musty and yeasty note, with a lightly acrid dry-bitter aftertaste. More interesting than impressive.
