Bottle looks simple a bit like a cheap beer. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts mild, malty, a bit moldy. Mild sourish notes, hardly dry. Only average.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2013 Bottle.
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/cereal, wort), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs), with light notes of soap and urine.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic.
Despite being a seemingly fresh bottle (BB October), this is a pretty depressing beer. Icky malt character, cereal-ish and raw/worty. The hops aren’t much better...soapy and cat pee-ish. Thin, metallic, kinda dirty finish. A drain pour, sadly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft at Brauerei Eichhorn in Forchheim. clear medium-light glowing gold body with a huge and rocky ice cream fluff head. clean and sweet toasted grain and corn kernel pale malt / corn syrup / sugar character with stoic mineral rigidity in body. subtle but noticeable diacetyl notes float around acceptable levels for Czech lager, and it works well here with the lightly spiced and fruity German hops and sweet, straight-forward pale malt presentation. well-made for sure, with a crisp and clean profile from lagering, smacking and cracker-y and sweet. easily drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle by 11.12. Mild citrusy pale malt nose, swirling light orange-golden with a white head. Taste constrains the sweetness, a little more tang, probably, and a nice crackery bitterness underlies all. Citrus and some biscuit, there’s some startling complexity here. Medium body, super juicy.
