From a 330 ml bottle. Golden with a medium head. Nice aromas of flowery hops. Devent bitterness when drinking, but only a few interessting other tastes. Medium body, lively carbonization. Good to drink.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at home after work! Nothing too special here. Pours a typical German Pilsener color with a decent head that fades fast. Bitter, but watery with little body. Not awful but nothing spectacular.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pale golden but the head is rocky and sustaining - archetypical for a great pilsener head. Aroma is grainy malt and grassy-herbal hops, plus some basement and apples. Pilsener taste but not intensive enough. Malt is in the background but the hop aroma is unfortunately still too subtle to come up for that. The moderate-to-heavy, lingering bitterness is the best part of the beer but overall it is too watery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Herb-würziger Geruchseindruck. Geschmacklich wird in die selbe Kerbe geschlagen. Ordentlich herb, aber nicht übertrieben, mit würzigen Einlagen. Angenehm feinherber Ausklang.
Altenmünster Brauerbier hopfig-herb ist ein sehr angenehmes Bier. Schön zu trinken.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 50cl; a clear yellow beer, a head with thin texture that goes quickly. Nose is hopy and vegetable like. Aroma is dry, medium malty, very hopy, peppery, huge dry bitterness specially at the finish. More a pilsener than a lager, nice for the one who like hops.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
I wasnt impressed with this one. I know it says hop herb beer but its just not the same, style as I am used to. The German (finishing) hop wasnt one that I usually think of and gave a musty afternote

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Into the glass pours a slightly pale yellow beer with a flat, fine head. The smell is hoppy sweet. The beginning part brings disillusionment. First of extremely recent, then it’s all hop hammer. Very hoppy, tart, almost bitter like many northern german beer. The aftertaste is slightly musty, it comes with a strong bitter hops. The further course is mercilessly hoppy-bitter.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5L bottle. Pours a "Pale-Pear-Yellow" with solid white head that dissipates quickly but leaves good lacing. Moderate carbonation brings a bitter scent to the top of the glass - I can’t smell herbs. The taste is bitter/hops/grass with nothing added beyond. There seems to be slight sweet herbs lingering in the aftertaste, but not enough to place the flavors – perhaps this is what fresh cut grass tastes like...
