3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Fässla in Bamberg. Golden with a nice head. The aroma is fruity and hoppy with notes of straw and newly harvested hay. The flavour has nice hoppy notes with flower, fruit and newly harvested hay and a smooth touch of caramel. It’s very charming - and the atmosphere adds to the overall impression.

Bottle: Pale golden, mid-sized firm, lasting head, a bit hazy; very shy nose: traces of hops, malts and cardboard too; very soft sweetish start;quite full bodied; nearly no aromatic hops detectable in the soft, sweetish-malty finish; more a quite good Hell than a true Pils........

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught Fully celar gold; small, very fast dwindling transparant white head. Sweet, very malty nose, nearly honey-ish. Estery! Dry-opening Pilsner with (very) far away hops, discreetly German. Light but with a certain grist-body. Feels more bodied than I estimate it probably. Not very outstanding. Good but nowhere outstanding. Less hoppy character than the Lager!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Clear, golden colour with a medium-sized, lacey foamy white head. Fresh herbal, slightly lemony hops aroma with a moderate malty sweetness. Sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied, crispy on the tongue. Soft grainy malty taste with fruity and herbal hoppy accents; moderately dry, sweet and slightly bitter malt-accented finish with a delicate but also aromatic hops character (25.02.08).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 Impressions from the schwemm:
-A ring of foam stands above the transparent golden.
-Dry hay and herbal supporting hops make up most of the flavor profile.
-Very clean and lean-bodied, very drinkable.
-Aroma and flavor are consequential, no surprises here.
-Herbal hop bitterness lingers amicably.
On tap a couple of times at the brewery.
