3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle, kindly donated by Bierkoning - Danke! Clear pale golden colour, small white head. Hoppy nose, which surprised me - reminded me of a Bavarian Pils. The flavours start with hops (reminding me of beers from the Allgäu), honey is blending in soon. The honey complemements the hoppy character of the beer surpsisingly well - this is delicious!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden yellow, moderate frothy white head leaving early lace. Sweet grainy aroma, with definite honey tones. Same on the palate, with a clean finish. Not bad really, but bordering on too sweet for a lager (mind you, I say that about most honey lagers).

Bottle @ my faculty. Light golden colour, thin white head. Aroma of skunky hops, malts and honey. Flavour is bad pilsener with some honey added. Very thin, not very good.
