Radeberger Pilsner

Type: Pilsner
Origin: Radeberg, Germany
Price: $1.99 per 0.5 L

Radeberger Pilsner is definitely made in the traditional pilsner style, but has a few aspects that quite a sweet surprise. The color is golden, and it has a very generous head. There is a slight skunkiness that can be smelled across the room, but like the Konig Pilsner, the taste is not skunked. There is just a faint bitterness, but the most surprising quality was the sweetness that reminded me of a candy necklace, which usually doesn't come out in pilsners. This also might be the first beer that has an ingredient list on it, which includes only water, barley malt, hop extract, hops. I remember that a dive bar (Whiskey Thieves) in San Fran has this on tap, which I will definitely have to pick up with a shot next time I'm there.
