Radeberger Pilsener

Taps for a Dead Soldier
Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
Radeberger Pilsner
Radeberger Exportbierbrauerei
Radeberg, Saxony Germany

Brain Damage Quotient = 4.8 % ABV
Fluid Oz. = 16.0 (On Tap) 

Postmortem Brew Review
Nearly clear, pale golden color.
Sweet grain smell and slight hops presence.
Two finger soft white head  lingers throughout glass to a wisp.
Light and dry, dry, dry with slight carbonation.
Good amount of bittering hops with a tart dry finish 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
This pilsener is done in a lager style, bottom fermented and rings in with 33 IBU's.  That's right, as much as any average pale ale would have.  Now that you know this, lagers don't seem so bad.  And they are not, especially when they are made by the first German brewer to make pilseners in the old style.

Fresh off the tap, smooth and so easy to enjoy, Radeberger Pilsner makes a great starter or equally a great beer to finish your evening.  Maybe even your all night beer?  I will leave that up to your discretion.
