3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass zippy, strange yellow head. Starts intense hoppy, quite bitter as exspected, dry, also woody. Certainly not bad, but not my favourite style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s not at all ESB. It’s West Coast IPA or American Pale Ale. Huge hoppy, fruity and citrusy aroma from American varieties of hops (C-hops as it’s written at the label). It’s golden color with huge and long lasting head. Medium high bitterness, with great hoppy fruitiness. Beer is dry, very drinkable and refreshing. No caramel notes. I must repeat - this is not an ESB.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to erzengel! Pours a slightly hazy medium gold color with a nice light tan head. The smell is tart citrus, grass, mild malt. The taste is citrus, grassy, nice malt sweetness to balance the bitterness. Light+ in body and nicely carbonated. Another nice beer from Fritz!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: citrus, sweetness.
Appearance: slightly hazy gold color, nice head.
Taste: high bitterness (pine & resin), which is quite astringent, dry.
Palate: medium body and high carbonation, long bitter finish with some citrus notes.
Overall: Nice beer, but only one dimensional. There is no malty backbone, what is the biggest disadvantage. This beer requires to add some sweetness to break the bitter taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (BierKompass.de)
Lovely C hop aroma, full fresh buds, really crisp and spicy. Deep straw colour, large spongy off-white head. Classic English Ale yeast taste from the malts, just a hint of yeastiness too, even though it poured completely clear (Anna got 1 drop of cloudiness). Crisp biting palate, pleasant carbon. Finish bitingly bitter, very nice, grapefruity - good use of cascade. Perfectly attenuated - so crisp. And the bitter bite of the hops matches that high attenuation perfectly. A smack in the chops almost like a De Ranke XX, but alas not as full in the body (and lacking the general magic of that brew). However, a really solid first impression - Well done Fritz!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bouteille:Golden, hazy, mid-sized and lacy white head, moderate to solid herbal, grapefruity and piney nose, balanced by a sweet-malty backbone; solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and astonishingly soft; lingering bitter-sweet grapefruity finish, a touch of sweet malt is detectable in the very end. Very well crafted and well balanced german hop-bomb…
