3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Surprisingly, I enjoyed this one. Clear, light-golden lager. Large, fizzy, white head diminishes to a small, well-retained, creamy head. The nose holds some licorice, mint, bisquit and honey notes. Well-balanced flavor. Good 'n' malty, but sufficiently hopped. Light toffee. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Golden color with a white head. The taste is kind of watery with notes of wheat malts and yeast. It has to be hot for me to drink a lot of these.

Clear golden colour. Not much banana, but a hoppy finish. A bit bready and malty. Sour and citric. Nice for an Erdinger.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet lightly wheat aroma with a bit of metal. Clear yellow with a head. Flavour was slightly sweet with hints of citrus, banana, malt, wheat and hallertau. Fair whack of carbonation and a bit thin in the mouthfeel. Overall good for a hot day but I prefer the hefe.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yellow with a big rocky head. Unclean banana aroma with some sugary and metallic notes. Not much flavour or body, just a fizzy and sweet flavour of old and/or brown bananas. No finish.

This was a disappointing beer from Erdinger as it lacks flavor in my opinion. It poured a huge rocky, frothy white head with a carbonated and clear body with a yellow-gold hue. The nose consisted of malt, banana and clove. The flavor was sweet with a smooth and thin mouthfeel.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma consists of some vanilla and some lemon zestiness. As for the flavour, it is oddly watery and characterless for an Erdinger. It is smooth but it also has a soda water mouthfeel. As this is clear it could be targetted at fans of poor quality lager.

Flat and pale wheat beer with a sweet aroma. The flavour is basically sweet. Overall an average wheat beer, a bit disappointing.
