Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 73: DAB Original.

A quick run back to Germany.

DAB Original

Pours a pale clear yellow with a medium head that fades to this lacing on the surface.

First Sip: Mild malt, mildly sweet, a bit bland. Faint hoppy aftertaste.

This could be quite a good beer, but it's a bit ordinary. I think the problem can be summed up in two words: Hops Extract. Instead of brewing the beer properly, the company have dumped in the extract. This beer is probably best drunk very cold on a hot day. It's not one I would seek out.
