3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half-liter bottle poured into a snifter. Gift from my Irish principal who last lived in Germany (go figure). Pours a bold, clear gold hue with a thin, quickly vanishing white head. Nose of pear and white wine. This is a surprisingly bold, woody, almost meaty flavor with a crisp, spicy bite. The only hop remnants is from the tingly sensation at the end of each sip. This is a new taste for me, but I actually like it for a change.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle at home. Golden liquid with a small white head. The aroma has smoked plums and tar sauna. The flavor is sweet and lovely smoked - giving it hints of tar sauna, combined with strong notes of wood. Specially good lager type brew for summer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong peppery spicy little bit of skunky aroma. Smoky flavors finish and linger in the aftertaste. Very interesting. Don’t dislike at all but then again could only drink so much. Makes you want to eat food.
