3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden in colour with steady head and smooth body. The aroma is just pure IPAish, means nose of spicy hops. Taste of coriander, pepper, hops, low malt, grass and cardamon. Maybe little bit thinner than expected. Good and solid beer, definately worth its money.

Yellow and clear. Medium head with a nice lacing. Smell was hoppy, a bit of pineapple, a bit of citrus. The taste was malty, fresh and fruty. Medium body and refreshing. A nice Kölsch - not as boring as many "standart"-Kölsch.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of a selection of 38German beers I have been gifted by a friend from Germany. Chose this first because of the initial impression of a nicely presented beer bottle. I can’t define the aroma for this beer, it was not unpleasant by any means, very much like a Belgian Blond. Appearance wise, qite yellowy rather than golden, slightly unappealing hue to be brutallly honest - possibly choice of glass was detrimental - no head. Taste and Palate - I’d say it was citrusy, label hinted at banana but I couldn’t detect that - the taste overcomes the appearance, it left me wanting more. A very pleasant beer
