1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at Barfusser Brewpub, Nurnberg. Pale gold / straw with thin white head. Had the worst 2 beers of the whole trip at this over priced brewpub, poor amateurish beer, over gassed, thin, cheap adjuncty malt, cereal. Terrible.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ Vinarna Hrozen.
Pours a clear, slightly green golden. A nice, big, creamy, white head. Aroma is powerfully grainy, some hay-like hops. Okay mouthfeel, but a little thin. Flavour is very sweet, bread, grainy and brewing cereal. Far too sweet.

Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is grass, yeast, malts and hops. Flavour is quite much the same with a quite big yeastyness. Refreshing brew, even though not that exciting.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
At the Vinarna Hrozen RBESG tasting, sampled from a huge bottle brought by asheft (thanks for bringing it!).
Poured a yellow-golden body with very lively carbonation and a thick chalky head. A pungent nose, bit funky. Brewing cereals. Nice grainy taste, some sweet nuttiness but still not the best beer around.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
on tap at the brewpub, called blonde which makes sense as it wasn’t really a pilsener. murky pale golden with some lacing. unsophisticated, sweet aroma of semi-fermented home brew. nondescript - low bitterness, some vanilla malt, pretty boring
