330ml bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, Jan 15, courtesy of Bladdock. According to the blurb above, this is the perfect beer. It’s not. Corn-syrup dominates with a tired sweetness. Not great.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle: BBD 8th Jan 15. Brought back from Hamburg by me to the Shrewsbury bottle share group and split between five of us on 12th Jan 2015, some four days after its BBD: bugger. Anyway the beer poured a clean and clear lager/pilsner gold and had a white topping for a while. Corn syrup ruled both the aroma and taste of this sweet brew. Not great up it was not as bad as I half expected. Just a sweet, uninteresting lager really.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clear golden color, topped with an average and quickly settling white head. Malty aroma, lots of sweet and grainy notes. Taste starts very sweet, way too sweet, followed by almost no bitterness. Sweet aftertaste. Just bad.
