3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice German lager. Hazy yellow and quite lively for being naturally carbonated. Straw and cereal aroma. There is a good change of pace where the bitter is at the fore and the malt is present on finish, as the unfiltered grain components drag there way across the palate. Refreshing and filling.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Tyler’s, Durham. Nice looking pour, a crisp golden with lively carbonation. Nose is fairly anonymous, with soft fruitiness and a trace of rind. Body is fairly thin and tends to expose the relative meh-ness of the flavors, which are overall dry and a bit lemony with mild hops. Quite average.

On tap: Pours a cloudy pale golden with a creamy froth of white head. Has a soft floral hoppy and pale sweet malty nose. Starts with good fullness and lightly sweet and floral flavor before a drier earthy bittersweet finish. True to style and very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330 ml brown bottle. Best before 4/11/2012.
It is a fine looking brew. It pours a hazy light gold with a fizzy white head. The only knock is that there isn’t much lacing.
This is a decently old bottle for the style but it smells fresh still, must have been kept okay in the past. It is light but malty with a hint of light fruit and a bit of herbal hop.
The flavor is real nice. Really bright beer here. Some yeast prescence, more so then if you got it fresh on tap near the brewery, but it isn’t detracting much from the beer. It has a nice herbal bitter note in the finish and is mostly flavorful but subtle pale malts with a subtle fruitiness.
Drink these before they go old, that is all.
