3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle purchased @ Julio’s Liquor’s for $4.99 minus Wild Six Discount. Used a Kolsch glass. Ruby / brown color with sizable, white lasting head. Light lace. Overall nice eye appeal. Nose of malt and some floral hop like aroma’s. Toffee flavors with graininess and a decent hop bitterness in the back end to give it a more traditional German feel to it. The bitterness lingers just a bit. A nice offering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a soft copper brown with a slight haze. One finger of frothy off white head. Nose is dominated by Munich and Vienna. Super bready and biscuity with lots of toasted grain. Has a weird slickness to it. Almost tastes like diacetyl. Some caramel-y sweetness and herbal hops. Not digging this flavor or the mouthfeel. No carbonation and a super soft body with an overly aggressive bitterness.

Bottle. Pours a very hazy dark amber with a moderate head. Malty and surprisingly hoppy in the nose. An odd malty bitterness to the taste that’s awfully heavy.
