Half litre on a tourist boat on the Spree in Berlin. Totally clear light yellow straw colour. Decent head. Very low bitterness in the taste, slightly sour. One of the least hoppy pilsners I’ve ever had. At least it looks nice in the glass! Passable. markoijelena (3122) - Belgrade / Amsterdam, SERBIA - APR 8, 2014

This was ’my beer’ back in the days when West Berlin had a wall around it and Berliner Kindl still had a brewery: in fact I played football against the brewery team once.
I try and re-visit the city every two years or so. I was surprised to see I’ve never written about this old friend of mine from the late 1980’s. I had a 0.3 litres poured for me in Dicke Vertin, Charlottenburg on 22nd Jan 2014 for old times sake.
It’s changed a little if my memory serves me correctly: still bright, golden, clean and clear but missing the crisp dry hoppiness I remember.
It never was a clever Pilsner, just pleasant and refreshing with a hop lead, it still is, but it seems more basic than ever, the malts appear more corn like in flavour and the finish was slightly metallic in nature.
Glad I tried it again, it’s better than that awful Berliner Pilsner that has taken over half the city but not much better. RuneStumo (2687) - Haugesund, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2014

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein klares goldgelbes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hopfig, getreidig, grasig. Geschmack hopfig, grasig, lang anhaltende Bitterkeit. MichaelAwesome (6519) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2013
Leicht getreidig mit ein wenig Heu im Aroma. Angenehm bitter zum Abschluss hin. Keine große Fülle, aber dennoch erfrischend und überm Schnitt. McTapps (6889) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a clear deep golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and straw. Taste of mild hops, grass, light malt and hay. Light hints of caramel and with a light metallic finish. Easy drinkable, solid, unspectacular Pils.
