2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle by 09.12., have been waiting to get my hands on one of these for several years. Nose lightly sweet with faint grass and a little must. Dull, clear golden body with a soapy white head. Taste is sweet, some citrus and vanilla under booze with fresh and firm but faint hops on the back end. Light body with faint honey, but again, the primary character here is booze. Truth be told, there’s not a lot to distinguish this one from, say, Edelstoff. A big disappointment.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml brown bottle, taken at The Cask Pub and Kitchen, London Oct 2011.
This light golden coloured beer could have been a regular Pils/Helles; at first it looked and had the smells you’d expect from a Munich breweries bier. However the smell began to become more pronounced, caramel and toffee esters began to merge with the usual grainy hop aromas normally found in Munich light coloured biers.
Sweetish and very easy to drink, the hops although playing second fiddle to the malts do assert themselves at times and make this an interesting and refreshing drink. The alcohol isn’t completely hidden, not quiet enough depth of flavours to blank it out, it doesn’t sit in your face, but you can certainly feel it below the surface.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Not very appealing. Musty, malty aroma. Soil, grass, flowers...
Mouthfeel: Medium To Full, a little creamy.
Taste: It has quite a character. Honeyish, tart, spicy, with some balancing bitterness. Not very enjoyable, has some bad grassy notes.
Finish: Rather poor. Some mild warmness, spicyness, acidity.
Overall: Not very tasty, but has its own character.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught (as Augustiner Maibock) at GBBF 2011. Deep golden color. Very honeyish aroma. Sweet bready and honeyish malt taste. Very mellow, could have more hops for a balance. Surprisingly honeyish a bit mead like flavor.
