4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tasted at Green Street Smoked Meats during trip to Chicago. Wonderful rich barley nose, slight notes of banana and clove from Weisse yeast. Helpful bartender said this is a rare and lost style from germany called ’dampfbier’. Super drinkable and happy to see this lost style gaining attention in America.

Bottle shared by czar, thanks! Pours a dark golden with a medium white head and good lacing. Aroma is fruity and also offers dried grass and grain husk impressions. Taste is malty with again the same grain husk flavors along some sweet cereals and light spices. Body is kind of light, mouthfeel slick. Nice and fun to try, not sure I would come back to it though.

clear orange, smooth fluffy offwhite head.
faint exotic fruity, yeasty and malty flavor,
flavor is malty, caramelly, sort of euro hoppy, the malts are in front, the caramel is not in the way, nice beer, but not to my taste, however easy drinking and with no flaws.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Orangish straw, hazy, moderate sudsy white head, little lacing.   Faint apple/pear skin like fruitiness on the nose.   Pale breadiness, soft sweet pale fruit like the nose suggested.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish, but a little boring.   Just seems to be some pale breadiness with faint fruitiness.   Too soft overall.
