4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours deep gold with a diminishing white head. Aroma is quite nice, with apple, floral notes, toasty grain - really excellent balance. Taste is quite malty-sweet up front, medium-light body making it easy to have another sip. Light bitterness balances everything out. I thought this beer was really exceptional!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. Aroma is light hops and grassy. Appearance is pale golden with a minimal white, fast decreasing head. Taste is light bitter and sour. A light oily texture with a light body. A fizzy carbonation but an astringent, light bitter finish. Not my favorite beer but still drinkable.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Nothing special but very, very quaffy. Lots of malt, some nuts and a bit caramel. Classic one which goes down very easy and quite delicious. Above average.

Bügelverschlußflasche(vom Jonas!!!): Moderate honeyish-fruity nose with pale-malt and some hops underneath, golden coloured with a stable and lacy white head; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; honey and some hops in the lingering finish. A very nice and moreish brew…

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Quite small whitish head over still orangey metallic-golden beer. Milky-grainy nose; pale malts; sweetish, demure. Little bit of straw. Dry-bitterish, but with a marked almondy flavour, as from bitter almonds - but turns out to be fleeting. Finish is more malty-sweet. Feels at least more carbonated than it looks. Light body, ever so slighly burning MF. Definitely preferring the Bayerische Märzens.
