2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Süßlicher, wenig würziger Antrunk, der hintergründige Honignoten beinhaltet. Durch die starke Karbonisierung kommen die Aromen aber nur teilweise an, später werden sie deutlicher. Dort ist es zudem malziger, die Süße ist stimmig. Mildes gelungenes Bier...9/8/9/7/8/8

Pours dark orange with very small vanishing head. Fresh bread, honey, yeast and orange aroma. Well carbonated. Mild malty and sweet honey flavor mixed with citric crispness. Not much palate feel, some acidy fruity sweetness. Finishes with a slightly tart bitter aftertaste turning to malty one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (traded with Allen!): Amber coloured, big creamy and lacy off-white head; a good dash of honey in the sweetish-malty and slightly sourish nose; light to moderate sourish-sweetish flavour, quite light bodied and quite soft; light sweetish-sourish finish with a hoppy aftertaste. A bit thin - for a beer of 6.0% - but nevertheless quite good........

Bottle, thanks Allen. Godd nutty roasted sugar aroma. Cloudy amber-brown, low head. Aromatic honeyish start, dark sugar, nuts, slightly wooden. Bit edgy and overpowering, but a lot of flavor. Ok balance. Medium to light body, smooth mouthfeel. I liked it.

33cl. It pours a beautiful amber beer with a nicely lasting slightly tanned head. The nose is mainly of honey and caramel. Slightly sour with hints of candy and melon - rather nice. The taste is malty and nutty; accompanied by quite a lot of honey. A bit sour. Beautiful lacing. Medium bodied. Some candy showing up. Leafy. Yeasty finish with hints of candy, grapes and lemon. A good and interesting beer - unfortunately with some sour components though.

bottle, bought at the brewery. Cloudy, orange-yellow colour, large creamy head. Quite fruity flavour, but neither very malty nor very hoppy, quite thin.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle, with thanks to quack-duck for the sample!) Hazy, orange to amber colour with a huge off-white foamy head. Sweet, moderately yeasty, but rather strong honey aroma with a restrained malt-character, plus a light touch of caramel and faint hoppy notes. Light-sweet flavour, thin bodied - where the h… are the 6% ABV?, smooth carbonation. Soft malty base, honey-ish fruity taste; medium-dry, malt-accented slim finish with light bittering notes. On par with the usual modern brewpub standards known from Germany. “Frischbier” is the right word as they state on their labels. Not moreish; I would order an ordinary Schützengarten brew instead, if asked for a second one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity and a little yeasty aroma. Hazy, orange color, beige head, good lace. Light sweet, very fruity, refreshing, softly hopped, honey in the finish, bitter in the very end, medium body. Nice but brown ale no. Maybe more like a belgian ale.
