Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 35: Oettinger Pils

Another Pilsner.

Oettinger Plsner

Slight fizz on opening, Pours a clear pale yellow with a medium head that fades really fast.

First sip: A bit of grainy malt, with a mild hops and an astringent finish. Mouth-feel is a little thin with a faint carbonation tingle on the tongue.

I don't know about this pilsner. I can't make up my miind. It's okay and tastes better when the glass warms a little. It would make an excellent hot day drink, but it's not one i would spend my money on. There are better beers, and yet there are much worse beers. On the other hand it is surprisingly cheap for an imported beer -- cheaper, and better than, a lot of locally produced largers. I would buy this over Tooheys New or Victoria Bitter any day.
