3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From old notes, on tap at Lingua, early 2015? Nice amber-gold with a tight foamy head and decent lacing. Aroma is light on, crackers, grassy, a touch of freshly cut flowers. Malt notes dominate the flavour, bready and slightly earthy, gentle hop. Medium carbonation and a light-medium body, soft bitter feel. Not bad.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
from Erzbierschof - hazy dark amber-orange beer with no head retention; discrete fruity and flowery aroma; solid but subtle carbonation; a fair malt backbone, quite dry and long grainy and flowery finish where the fruity tones remain behind

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Restrained aroma in a golden pour. Fruity rather than hoppy balance with a nice clean finish. Interesting taste profile for a larger - and better for it (to my mind).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Erzbierschof Zurich. Beautiful amber & copper color. Very drinkable indeed, with a rather malty palate and taste, almost a bit dusty. Still a very good amber lager though!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Nose of caramel, yeast, and a bready maltiness. Hazy dull light amber/brown, fat fluffy head. Generous fruitiness, bready, light caramel. Gets rather sweet in mid palate. I don’t get any of the citrus notes that others have mentioned. Seems more ale-like than lager.
