Radeberger Pilsner

I’m still tired today. The other half had to go to work and I’m still trying to figure out what I’m going to do with my day. It’s pretty crappy out, so I have no real desire to do anything. But, we’ll see. Anyways, let’s see how this beer was.


ABV: 4.8%

Style: German Pilsener

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Invention coupled with ambition gives birth to greatness. In the late 1800’s, nowhere was this more evident than in the city of Radeberg, Germany. Tucked between Dresden and the Elbe Valley, Radeberg lay at the heart of the Kingdom of Saxony before Germany was a unified country. Saxons are renowned for their unwavering devotion to industry, relentless obsession with quality, and flourishing cultural freedom: the perfect landscape for the genesis of Radeberger Pilsner. Since 1872, we’ve been guided by one single-minded pursuit – we call it ‘Pilsner Perfection,’ the perfect combination of water, hops and barley (nothing more, nothing less), and a passion to share our distinctive taste with the world – first in Saxony, then Germany and around the globe. Some follow fashion and others chase fads, but we’ve stayed true to the cause – brewing our exceptional German Pilsner in the same town (and nowhere else) for one consistent taste the world over. What’s more, it’s all we’ve ever done and all we do to this day. We’ve learnt that when your aim is true, you’ll never miss your mark.”

Random: This was another beer that I bought for my online beer class.

This beer poured with a half a finger of pure white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the pint glass. The body was a clear, straw yellow with high carbonation visible. The nose had grass and crisp pilsner malt without much else. The taste was the same as the nose with grass and crisp pilsner malt. It also had a touch of skunk. The body was on the medium side of the style with high carbonation. It had a quick finish with pilsner malt. This beer was very simplistic and clean. For $1.33 a bottle, which broke down to $.11 per ounce, this beer was decent, but nothing mindblowing. I wouldn’t rush to have this again.
