    Had a taste of this at a local Dan Murphys a few weeks back (beer tasting ftw). I didn't mind it actually, tasted alright for a cheap lager.

    You can get a case for $26 ATM.

    Not tooo bad. Not great though. Doesn't really taste like a Pils to me.

    Fairly malty and not very hoppy. No bitterness at all.

    An average (generic) german import, pretty much inline with all the other cheap european imports being sold at other bottlo's. Better than most other (local) beers in the ~$20-30 price range, but isn't worth any more than that, and can't compete with anything above that imported or not.

    I agree with d_player33, not what you'd call a definate pils without seeing the label, tastes more like a fairly easy drinking lager, worthwhile if you want something cheap and don't pay over low $30's at the most.

    This one's a staple of the beer-swillers in Deutschland, gets sold by the truckload as it's both cheap and quite nice. I didn't like it on it's own but went well in a jug of Shandy.

    Shandy fuck yeah!

    Got a mate who works at Dan Murphy's and he always grabs a carton of beer when he comes to my place. He bought round a carton of Oettinger the other week and I thought it was pretty good, especially for the price.

    Pretty much my observation as well. There's some German tallies of wheat beer that Dan Murphy's sells that everyone around here seemed very happy with when I gave them some at Christmas - not cheap at $5 for 500mL but very nice indeed :)

    On the subject, does anyone like (or has tried) Köstritzer? Deliciously heavy dark German beer.

    it's a bit warm for dark, heavy german beer right now isn't it?! :)

    i'm gonna give my +1 for oettinger. lashed out and bought the case today, and gotta say, at a little over $1 a bottle, it's bloody good drinking. doesn't taste shitty/watery like other sub-$30 slabs of anything full strength. nice on warm days like today (and will go well with our impending bbq dinner tonight!) :thumbup::thumbup:

    Yeah Köstritzer is a lovely schwarzbier, I wouldn't really call it heavy though. :)
