2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle bb07/2014, Edeka Olgastrasse. Revisiting this +3 years after my last regular encounters with this everywhere in D-0711. Your typical once-regional, now Radeberger-owned standard Pilsner: straw, dry grains, just enough hops (no extract in this case: bonus point) to elevate it above lager/Helles level. Finishes on a surprising mineral and old lemon note, indeed McTapps. With Hofbräu there always was this metallic and stale quality that made it 2nd choice, even in my swilling days.

Pours a nice pale gold. Hints of hops and malt abound, as well as a touch of grassiness. Light, refreshing, and good on a warm day.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is loaded with fresh noble hops as well as sweet, base malt. Lemon and caramel notes. Clear straw with bubbly white cover. Pleasant hops flavour and bitterness that are well balanced, but nothing extraordinary. A bit too bitter for the pleasant but subtle malt flavour--even some ethanol notes. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, lasting nutty bitter finish.
