2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a pale gold with a large white head. Aroma is a nice and bready wet dough with some fresh cut hay. Flavor is clean and adjunct free with the dry pale malt, a touch of bitter hops and a nourishing quality. Very thirst quenching as well. At the source this beer is probably a amazing example of the style. It’s still pretty decent after making the journey here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear straw golden color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head has a lighter level retention, fading rather fast to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell –The aroma of the beer was strongest of a bready smell mixed with a bit of a yeastiness. Along with these aromas comes some light notes of floral hops and a little bit of a biscuit smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a more bready and yeasty flavor, with these flavors creating a base for the brew. As the taste moves on some notes of grain and a little bit of a floral and grassy hop come to the tongue. The hop grows slightly stronger, but remains relatively light, to leave a crisp, but sorta bready taste (at least for a 4.8% abv. beer) to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average in terms of both its thickness and its creaminess. The moderate nature of the mouthfeel is perfect for the mix of bready and yeasty tastes along side the more moderate sessionable style of the beer.
Overall - This was a rather easy drinking and flavorful beer at 4.8% abv. A very nice summer time session I would have to say.

Draft at Andechser am Dom. Clear golden yellow color with a large, billowing white head. Nice honey, bread, biscuit aroma. Flavor is mildly sweet with honey and bready/doughy pilsner malts. Slight grassy hops, but very subtle. Medium-bodied and very smooth, crisp with high carbonation. Very good for the style.

The beer pours crystal clear yellow with a white head. The aroma has light dough, pale pils malt and lager smoothness. Pretty simple, but nice. It has a medium smooth body with soft carbonation. The taste starts with dry pale malt, smooth lager maltiness, some crackers and light spice. The finish has a light bite of hops with spiciness, but still malt forward. Nice.

Translucent straw with a thin but persistent white head. Creamy medium body with crisp high carbonation, and some slight tannin presence.
