3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 0.50l. Clear amber brown color with thick tan-like head and lively bubbles. Aroma of malt, caramel, yeast, grassy hops and banana. Taste starts sour grassy, then followed by sweeter (but not much) dandelion syrup, while finished hoppy and relatively rich malty. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Interesting name, interesting beer, at least better than common German helles...
