4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap @ Bayer Theinheim. Krug. Pours hazy golden with a small creamy head and lacings. Grassy green hops , biscuit and bread. So soft and mellow juicy with a farmyardy hayish touch. Perfect balance and a delicious bitter hoppy finish. This required 3 seidla’s before we left. Cant wait to go back here!

20090919 Cask at Max’s. Hazy gold color with slight white head. Sharply peppery and yeasty aroma with fresh bready hominess. Biting and clean flavor, continues bready trend. Beautiful and stylish, this one was the highlight of the German Fest for me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a gravity cask at Churchkey.
Pours a nice light copper color with a thick white head and some pretty decent lacing. Smells brings forward some slightly toasted doughy bread alongside a tad bit of grassy hops. Taste integrates the flavors quite well, with the delicate dough playing alongside a very timid hoppiness. Feel is light and very refreshing. Drinks quite well, but was a bit heavy and toasty.
Serving type: cask

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[ Tap ][ 10oz ][ Churchkey ][ $7 ][ pint ][ 9/20/14 ]
hazy tea, thin white ring, light sediment. Lightly lactic nose, earthy bread crust, mineral with light grass, hay. Softer flavor, earthy front incredibly dusty hay before delicate dough mid, soft fluffy, grassy bitterness dominating the finish, soft and toasty, full and very balanced, needing stronger grains and more nuance but the expressive noble hops throughout are awesome.

[ Gravity Keg ][ 14oz ][ Churchkey DC ][ $7 ][ Becher ][ 9.20.14 ]
>> Low haze orange gold pour with small white foam and rings of wispy lacing. Nose is Berliner Weisse like with sour mash wheat. Funky nose with flash of white vinegar and sauerkraut. Medium bodied flavor with sourdough, acid, Berliner type lacto finish with oily bread roll and sweet cream. Amazingly complex nose. Taste is earthy grain, super light, a tad too watery. Super sessionable. Second pour was better: more sourdough character, even more grassy hop power, cleaner, so drinkable. Ultra light and insanely well balanced between grassy hops and fresh grain/dough.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Brauerei Bayer Theinheim in Aug. 2014: Deep golden. Tight halo of white foam. Clean and focused aroma of uncured hay, aniseed, lemon, fresh baguette, rustic yeast, sulfur, minerals and toasted crackers. Soft and lush mouthfeel. Tongue-scrubbing minerals trail a burst of phenol-like sulfur, fresh baguette pils malt, and refined honeysuckle-nectar-drenched hops. Artfully incorporated toastiness gently scratches at the tongue yet is remarkably edgeless at the same time, allowing it to gel seamlessly with the strikingly soft and fluffy body. Luscious and bouncy malt matches the succulent Hallertau nectar pervasiveness. Yeast marks the body with ample rusticity, throughout. Hops acquire more depth as appetizing lemony hops brightly sizzle and accentuate the oily-sweet nectar dimensions. Closes dry and clean as a whistle, yet fully malty and notably rounded, with blooming baguette and new-mown hay capped by a gripping surge of minerals and sulfury yeast. A well made rendition that comes off as a helles / kellerbier hybrid. One of the more minerally examples out there, without question. About as dry and snappy as they come, and distinctly pure overall. Wonderful beer.

Gravity cask at Max’s German Fest 09. Pours a hazy deep golden with a lingering thin white head- some lace. Aroma is doughy pils malts, cracker, slight sweetness, earthy and slight leather, light grassy hops. Flavor is doughy a bit of wheat malts, toast, pils, cracker, grassy hops- floral, a bit yeasty- smooth easy finish. Nice.

From a gravity cask at Spuyten Duyvil. Hazy golden pour with a thick white head. Clean and a little bit crackery. Fresh and chewy with a light grassy hop character. Fairly hoppy with a nice crackery character. A bit of nice lingering yeastiness. Nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Gravity keg at redlight redlight. This is a very nice German pilsener. It pours yellow with hints of orange, bright though cloudy with a thick white head. It smells just like a German pilsener should smell whatever that means. The flavor is slightly bready, lots of pilsener malts. Bolder in both aroma and flavor than many pilseners but still crisp, refreshing, and delightful.
