2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Brauerei Bruckmüller in Nov. 2012: Pale straw. Thin, fragmented white foam. Unpleasant DMS aromas accompany hints of fusel alcohol, flowers, spruce tips, and melon. Firm, fairly fuzzy carbonation. Semi-sweet honeyish hay upfront, but nicely bright and slick with succulent and soothing Hallertauer nectar. Vaguely husky with a hint of popcorn poking through, otherwise has a nice mineral component and a subtle lemony acidity. Cooked corn DMS deposits tacky residue on the tongue, neutralizing any luster that might arise. Soft finish is riddled with grainy and flabby pils malt, which is suggestive of stale popcorn, and a dose of wet hay. The lovely water quality and lemony dimension tells me that this has some potential, but this batch was somewhat defective to my tastes.
