Rumor has it, this is one of the most purely refreshing beers in the world. It's also one of the most popular mass-brewed beers coming out of Germany. Unfortunately, most of you will be turned off by the extremely sour taste. Unfortunately, I'm one of those people. I've read that a lot of Berliners put fruit syrup into the beer to balance out the sour flavor to create a truly refreshing brew. Well, that's cool, I've got 3 left and I think I've got all the time in the world to find such syrup. Good thing this comes in small 11.2 oz (33 cL) bottles, they don't take up too much room. The bottles look like the little stubbies that Elsinor came in. And if you have to ask what Elsinor is, go finish your Bud.
