3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(tap) Reddish to hazelnut brown colour, clear, nice off-white head. Very toasty-malty, a little worty, with honey, light herbal-hoppy note. Slightly sweet, light bitter taste. Medium carbonation, light body, quaffable. Very malty in character without being too heavy, sweet or chewy.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light to medium amber.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (grain, caramel, malt syrup), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a strong note of butter, other notes of metal, spoiling orange juice.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation.
Just terrible...sour + butter = likely pedio infection, very dirty tasting, thin and watery. Ugh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bernsteinfarbenes Vienna mit cremigem Schaum. Lieblicher Malzduft, leicht röstig und getreidig. Frisch im Antrunk, leichter Körper. Karamelltöne und dazu auch nussig im Geschmack. Der Hopfen bittert angenehm nach. Die Übergänge dabei sind fließend und harmonisch. Gute Süffigkeit. Die Frischenote verdient besondere Erwähnung. Fazit: Gutes Bier in biederer Flasche.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle MH 18.10.(12). Nose is sweet with dust, grass, light citrus, caramel, seems a little meaty! Beautiful gradient ruby-amber (brandy-colored, really) pour with a rocky beige head. Fruity taste, thin and relatively dry, some toast and earth mashing with dust on the back end, a bit of nuttiness, too. There are some clean, fizzy lager textures, and a touch of hidden alcohol. Light bitterness but the overall feel is that something better had been over-filtered. Hard to know what to make of this.
