3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bought @ Bierkompass.de. Pours hazy goldenish yellow with a rather small bubbly and slightly frothy white head that quickly dissipates while leaving some lacing on the glass. Smell is sweet, malty and fruity with sweet white bread, lemon zest, buttery wood, slightly dry grass, crackers, sweet peas, persimmon and cereal. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, slightly malty, slightly floral and tiny metallic with white bread, lemon zest, wood, crackers, hay, dry soil, lemon balm and hints of persimmon. Mouthfeel is smooth, round, slightly dry and light to medium bodied. Finish is slightly bitter and herbal with crackers, hay, dry wood, orange zest, lemon balm and hints of persimmon. Bit off in the nose but rather nice quenching taste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at World Craft Beer Tasting in Osaka. Really heavy grassy aroma with some good hops, too. Very pale straw with a pretty and very creamy head. Very bitter initial; and then the hops bite a bit more in mid palate; mild grassy finish. Crisp and very refreshing. Has a punch. Good body, lots of hopping. Balanced very well. I’d have another right away.

Golden honey pour with massive ivory pillow sitting on top. Candied citrus, breadlines, unnamed dough, caramel, and freshly cut grass. Orange peel, grapefruit, and lemon zest as well. Nothing aggressive but all of the flavors are there. Nicely done, interesting lager.

Bottled. Poured light-honey and cloudy. 2 finger frothy head. Nose definitely had some lemony zest, citrusy, and light; reminded me of a nice smelling Pils (Mama yella). initial taste had some spice on it, but also light and crisp. you can taste the sweetness but ends with some bitterness. Overall a refreshing brew
