Gabf. Clear, golden orange appearance with a foamy, off white head. Pretty bland, sweet caramel malty nose. Nutty, light caramel flavor with a grassy hoppiness.

Malty with a clean almost sterile aroma. Flavor is quite malty. A bit of sweet caramel character, but this is too grassy malty for me.

The beer pours a bright amber-brown with a rocky off-white head. The aroma is mostly caramel with an earthy yeast tone and an herbal hoppiness. The malt has a tasty German character. It’s a bit nutty. It’s mildly sweet with a drying finish and a gentle hop bite. There’s a lot of nice German flavor bouncing around. Easy to drink and fairly refreshing. Mouthfeel is pretty standard. Average carbonation. A bit slick. This is a surprisingly tasty beer, particularly for one that I was mostly looking forward for the state tick. It’s got some nice, authentic German flavor and a nicely balanced tone.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2010
Tasting at Papsø
Hazy amber color; small head. The aroma is dusty, first of all, then nutty, with some caramel and cereals. Weak body; cereals flavor, too much for a good beer, without interesting malt. Nothing special.
