3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
As pictured. Dull bronze heaped with fine, undiminished white. Aroma of sesame, cherry blossom, earthy shrub and a whiff of Burton sulphur. Soft and sesame-accented with bread, cherry and biscuit. Very balanced, delicious, unspectacular brew; Bavarian BSB, if you will.

Barley on the aroma, weird smell, smells also very faintly smoked.
Light caramel flavour on the taste, sweet, with iron notes. Turns to light bitterness on the aftertaste.

Every word in the description is spot on although the bit about mackerel related diseases (see last line) was somewhat of a surprise initially.
