Bright and clean. Good lasting head. Slight lacing. Foamy mouth feel. Average hops for the style. Solid beer with food but doesn’t stand out alone.

A really nice sweet aroma, followed by a light pilsener flavor that’s not all that German in style. Light on the Saaz, this DAB is an acceptable choice. Soapy?

This beer did not make a strong initial impression. Poured on tap into a well-crafted German mug. Peachy-yellow color. A thin lacy head that disappated after a few minutes. Very light maltiness and hops. Smooth like a dortmunder should be ... perhaps a little too thin. This brew really grew legs, however, while I was eating. It really accentuated my meal. Worth a shot, but don’t run out to buy it.

They have this on tap at the German club in Stanmore and Im happy to drink this all night. I remember doing rounds with my mate Adam during the world cup. Ahhhh. This is an easy drinking relatively bland but not awful beer. Perhaps warm is better? Hmm. I wonder...

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A trivial point but my can said 5% ABV. Pale gold clear under a small short lasting creamy white head. Brief faint fruit and light sappy hops aroma with a touch of plasticene aroma. Was well within use by date but the overall impression was of a somewhat stale beer. Medium light body. Ordinary medium short sharp mild bitter flavoured start fading to a slightly sweeter middle and a more chemically bitter finish and aftertaste.
