3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Just a faint hiss of carbonation upon opening. Pours a bright orange color with minimal carbonation. Flavor is sweet malts, bready and slightly chewy, a hint of nuttiness. Finish has a definite German hops profile, with that slightly metallic bitter hint. Light bodied and clean finish. Simple yet well done. Reminds me of the German Oktoberfest beers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with a white head. Not much in the nose, touch of candied malt and faded hops. Lemons, toffee malts with a touch of those earthy hops coming out in the finish. The earthiness is strange with the flavors and the body is overly watery. Ok, but nothing I’ll ever choose to drink again.
