1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 I can remember drinking König Pils as a kid in Germany. There was a chain of pubs around the country called "König City" which featured this beer. And you know, it was pretty tasty. But nowadays, it tastes like a watered down Pils with low bitterness, no hop aroma and very little body. I mean, they even admit to an original gravity of 11.3°Plato which is just a joke. Too bad really, but this is a general trend in Germany and there is no hope in sight. Clean, drinkable, but totally boring. How do you make a low quality beer, but still follow the German Purity Law of 1516? Just use less of everything.

0.5l bottle. Clear golden body with a white head. Aroma of grain, hay and bread with some floral notes. Taste of bread, hay and floral hops. Dry and refreshig. The finish is a tiny bit harsh, but all-in-all correct.

Lovely sharp dry hops coming through. Actually the flavor as whole is pretty good. Far too carbonated though but a very fine macro larger for sure. Refreshing, tasty and grown up.

Draft @ Verklicker, Langeoog. Golden with a beautiful head and lots of lacing. Aroma is earthy, grainy, floral hops and a touch of skunk. Taste follows aroma. Strong carbonation. Crisp and clean. Refreshing after tasting a handful of subpar wines. Solid German Pils.

Here we have a real German Pilsener (Pilsner?). It has great flavor, with lots of earthy grainy qualities to it.

Ei niin huono perusolut. Olikin ihan mukava suutuntuma ja enemmän luonnetta kuin suomalaisissa.

Not bad pilsener. Grassy hops and malt. Better than average. Have to retest for more detailed review.
