3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy, yellow, with a small head. The aromas bring malt to the forefront. The flavors have malts and hops but a very distinct citrus finish. The mustiness typical for German pilseners is there but fairly subdued
The beer is fairly light-bodied.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at GBBF, London, 3 Aug) Colour is golden yellow with a huge white head. Nose is malty with a clean grain aroma and grassy hops. Taste is malty with a clean, fresh malt character and a bitter, grassy finish (well balanced bitterness). Some malty sweetness, but overall in great balance. Very enjoyable!
