3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the brewpub. Amber, slightly hazy, nice head disappears but not too fast. Nice color. Aroma has wood and hops on top of that. Leaves a nice, mellow garden fresh aroma. Is a very malty beer, too sweet for me, and a bit sticky in the finish. The Zoigl is better but this is nice enough.

Draught at GBBF08. High carbonation. Cloudy amber colour. Big stable creamy off-white head. Citric flavour. Strange bitterness. I wonder if this is intended.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate: draught at GBBF.
Clean dark gold with a thin but stable white head. Really pleasant summer fruits on the nose with some solid grassy hoppage. Similar flavour with a slight, but totally unexpected hint of germoline. Clean bitter finish. Tasty and so much better on draught.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the barrel - GBBF2008. A golden lager with a wisp of off-white head. The aroma is peachy and grassy, with maybe a little banana. Grassy hops in the mouth with some buttery malts, and again, some banana. Lacks body.
