3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Airbräu MUC. Late-hopped / dry-hopped with Huell Melon. Hazed gold with a lasting white head. Hoppy and zesty and yeasty, it’s pulpy and orange-lemon-pepper focused with a hard citrus bite due to the firm yeast presence. The consequence of this is that the malt profile is somewhat buried, but what is there is enjoyably toasty and baguette-like. Medium bodied, semi-sweet with palpable bitterness. Finishes dry and pithy, yeasty and creamy but not doughy (only a little eggy/sulfuric, but it fits well in the whole of the experience). It’s fuller-bodied and burlier than you expect of Pilsner, but it’s not weighty, and the sweetness is appropriately balanced. It’s really the bright effervescence that brings it all together; just shy of being sharp and grating, it instead blends well with the "pulpy" and "zesty" quality of the yeast, presenting the citric hops and toasty malt in stellar fashion. A surprisingly clean, bitter, and slammable unfiltered Pilsner, not something I would expect from an airport brewery, even in Germany.

On tap (0.33 l) at the brewpub at Munich airport. Clody light yellow color, good head. Fruity hop aroma of grapes and maybe Litchi. Quite mild for a Pilsener, but the fruity refreshing taste is amazing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Airbräu, Munich Airport, Terminal 2 in Dec. 2015: Hazed golden. Creamy, natural-looking white foam. Bright aromas of lemon marmalade, hay, peach Danish, fresh-cut melon, orange pith and a hint of rustic sulfur. Subtle soapiness. Assertively hoppy from the get go, with zesty, oily and lemony notes backed by an orange pith softness. Bright esters supplement the well attenuated body with a succulence, as the continually unfolding hoppy complexity reveals some appetizing peppery shades. Aggressive hoppiness is oily to the point of being jammy. Richly textured pils malt shows grassy hay qualities which deftly buoy the hops. Kiss of dusty yeast and gripping minerals contrast nicely with the succulent body. Envelope-pushing hops are laced with satiating lemony oils and strong floral notes which give way to orangey hop burps at the finish. A lovely hopcentric rendition that would be at home in Franconia, but not what one expects to find in Southern Bavaria, or let alone, an airport. Unfiltered and brimming with old world charm. Perhaps a little soapy and doughy at times, but that’s easy to forgive. Really enjoyed the dunkel, weissbier and unfiltered helles, as well. As a side note: their system is a beautiful thing…copper kettle, wooden mash tun and wooden fermenter! Looking forward to my next flight to MUC, just to fuel up on some decent food and excellent beer.

My Bottom Line:
Herbal hops and their citrusy tips overcome smooth cereals in this bitter unfiltered lager.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sizeable head of foam laces around the cloudy straw blond.
-Hops are generous and well developed throughout.
-Balance is not really achieved though, which is strange for what is billed as a Pilsener.
-Malts could be better defined.
-This is still a nice Kellerbier-like lager.
On tap at the airport plaza restaurant.

Draught at the brewpub. Hazy pale golden, creamy head. Mild spicy hops aroma. Dryish and well rounded. Rich amounts of spicy hops comes through as it goes, and there are is a mild touch of citrus. Not the most elegant pilsener, but an unusually hop example.

Translucent yellow with a white head. Yeasty aroma. Taste is sweet malt with yeast and a dry spicy finish. Bohemian pilsner? Nope.

On tap at Airbrau Munich airport. Hazy pale gold colour lasting white head. Lager malt aroma quite cereally. Then some interesting lemon hop on the finish which is quite dominant. The lemon hop finish is excellent. Good beer.
