3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful reddish golden transparent beer with a nice head.
Smell is heavily malty with a strong apple caramel sweetness. Some clove and pepper and a touch of bitterness.
Taste is bitter watery. Sweetish alcoholic with a strong fruitiness.
Quite OK but a bit strong for my taste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Wunderbar. Nifty shape; haven’t seen many like it before. But it’s a bright, totally clear green one. The beer itself pours a clear, bright gold without much head at all, just some negligible wisps of film and a partial, razor-thin ring. Aroma of toasted and doughy malts, grass, straw, and bits of nuts and earth. The flavor is way sweeter than anticipated, just really sweet and malty; some balancing straw, earth, almond, and a dash of spice. Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a malty, sweet mouthfeel. Not bad, but too sweet and not really my thing.

Pours a golden clear beer with a good white head. Smells malts, honey. Tastes honey, malts and yeasts. Very sweet. Average carbo, thin body and a sticky texture.

Slightly flat, sweet and malty with a notable alcohol presence appearing in the finish. Not bad but looks better than it tastes.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33 bottle. Clear, dark amber color and a medium, white head. Simple, delicate aroma of hops and malts, seems very much like a typical pale lager. Taste is malty but with some slight, hoppy bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is much sweeter and somewhat fuller than the flavor. Overall the beer has a nice palate but other than that it seems hackneyed and mediocre.
