3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Brauhaus Frings brewpub. Rich gold hue, thin white fine bubbly slowly diminishing head, some lacing. Nice moderate to strong malt aroma with a hint of passion-fruit, honey, smoke, Weetbix. Tastes light sweet, moderately bitter, noticeably sour and with faint salinity with a short duration which I guess makes it more-ish. Very soft carbonation, thin oily texture, dry astringent finish. Very different to any other lager I have had - mostly in a good way. Unusual taste but in a likeable way I suppose.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at the brew pub, a lively pour, a slight haze to the golden appearance with only a filmy head. A fruity aroma - peaches for me. A sweet malty palate, again very fruity. A bit of a non-decript mouthfeel. A lager with a bit more.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(On tap) Clear golden with a white head. Fresh and floral hop aroma. Medium in body with a good, clean malt base. There’s a light underlying acidity, not infected sour though. The finish is dry with a subdued bitterness. Refreshing. 090208
