Backlog. 33 cl bottle @ home, 2007 issue (also 6.5%), young. Pale blonde color, slightly hazy. Big head, but only a small layer remaining. Aroma’s: refreshing, fruit, a bit herbal/spicy, a bit caramel, with hints of coriander retronasal. Flavor is malty, fruity. Medium bodied. Firm bitter finish. Not as balanced as a real German Maibock, but a good interpretation.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Slightly fruity aroma. Hazy golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour is nicely sweet and fruity, ending on a quite bitter note, slightly rough. High carbonation. Tastes like a pale ale to me, and a quite good one.
