4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a beautiful amber honey with a white to slightly off white head of tightly packed bubbles. It’s quite stunning. Wonderful aroma, like fresh bread: caramel, bread, roasty nuts, light resin, floral hops, some barnyard, some raisin, some soy sauce, some vanilla... quite complex. Taste is very well balanced. Lingering dry bitter finish is nice BUT I detected a strange soapy glue mouthfeel. Almost felt like I had licked to many envelopes... This might be from my serving temperature (much warmer than usual) OR I had some hamburger meat while reviewing. ANYWAY, great beer, highly recommend, would drink again, will buy again.

Oh if it only had that slightly dry roastiness that I crave so much in the finish. Oh well, still an exemplary beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweaty honey color, not a lot of head at all. Looks more like the German version of a lager than the American version.
Aroma has some sweet candi sugars and cereal grains. A little corn syrup, with a hop-nose of pollen and hay. It’s mostly sweet, with just a touch of Euro-bitterness.
The flavor is corn syrup and. The hop is there, but it is very mild and is more like pollen and hay. Pretty consistent between aroma and taste. It’s a very mild, pleasant flavor. Buttery/biscuity notes. That flowery hop comes out after a few minutes.
Slick and buttery consistency. It’s a very pleasant beer, that gets better as you let it aerate and spread out a bit. Really changes as you get further down into the glass.

From a German beer pub a while ago, not many notes, sorry.
Bottled. Aroma: Caramel, hops, hay, malt. Appearance: I think I am reading "darker color with amber/some gold." Taste: Hops and malt but there is good balance with some underlying honey. Palate: Easy to drink but quite flavorful. Nice stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear light amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is light with some grains to it and just a bit of breadiness coming through. Taste is slightly sweet, with a fair amount of bread, toast, and grains to it. Decent.

Bottle. Cloudy orange-golden pour with a white head. Surprisingly fruity, lots of tropical fruit, some sultana raisins. Very malty, but lots going on.
