Franzberg Bier Premium Lager

Rating: 1.95

This one will be quite a quick review of what is the penultimate beer from my summer vacation that I’ve still to add here since it is actually one that may or may not be the same beer as the can of K Plus Svijetlo Pivo that I reviewed here previously. The beers are both from the same brewery and come in at the same abv. but at the time of drinking I felt there was enough of a difference in the tastes of the two beers for this one to have its own review. The beer is a cheap can from the Laško brewery that I picked up in the Istrian town of Rovinj near the end of my time in Croatia since it is one that I hadn’t spotted before so I thought I’d give it a try; in all honesty I probably wouldn’t have had I known there was a chance I’d sampled it before.

Franzberg Bier Premium Lager

Appearance (2/10): Light golden amber with a clear body and a thin, bubbly white lacing around the circumference of the glass in lieu of a head; there was plenty of visible carbonation showing as well.
Aroma (5/10):
Light hay and some grassy notes started things off here with a background citrus aroma and some corn coming through soon after. There was a few lager malts and subtle bitterness before a faint sweetness made itself known towards the end. The beer was fairly basic and there was a few alcohol grain in there as well that wasn’t particularly enjoyable.
Taste (5/10): Again quite basic with some corn and light lager malts coming through with a sweet taste following on behind. There was a moderate citrus aroma backed up by some hay and grassy hops around the middle and touches of lemon along with various adjuncts seen things out.
Palate (2/5): A very light bodied and thin beer that was smooth as a result but also quite bland. There was average carbonation levels and a basic sweetness running through the beer along with a slight tang from the citrus but that was about it really.

Overall (11/20): As expected, this one was quite a basic and fairly bland pale lager with not a lot going for it really and one that came through with little more than some light sweetness, basic adjuncts and some faint grassy hops and corn. It was an easy enough offering to drink, partly because it was so watery but it’s not one that I enjoyed or would pick up again.
