3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy yellow with a quick dissolving head with little lacing. Feint citrus and hay aromas.
Almost no bubbles are visible
Dry finish, doughy, malty taste.
Light carbonation. Medium bodies
An OK beer overall, but not my favorite.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy dull tan. A good head and a stoneware krug away from being a good-looking kellerbier. Aroma is appley, a bit malty. Medium body, too fruity, not enough bitterness or leafiness, lacks freshness, too yeasty. Basically, this tastes like a low-end kellerbier, like the getrankemarkt stuff, not the village brewpub stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at several places. brewers union unfiltered lager
Perfect level of haze on a luminescent gold body
Resinous aromas and flavors with nice body
Finish is dry but is sorely underhopped and the malt chatacter is meek
Not super successful as a kellerbier but likable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with Lyoli on the Eurostar, bound for Brussels; this will probably be the last lager of the weekend. Pours cloudy gold with a forthy, pure white foam head. Doughy malts nose with sugary white bread notes. Medium sweet flavor with strong dough, faint spices, faint hay. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes mostly mellow, though there is a slight bready crispness with further notes of hay and some straw, very light notes of corn and cereal, some white sugar. It’s a very basic lager, but it’s also quite refreshing in its simplicity.

Hazy beer with a superb scent. Crisp taste as it hits the tongue, covers the mouth in a sense of satisfaction. Might become my new favourite lager.
