3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A gift from Maxbier, poured into a small cup. Had a hard time placing this one, never had this style before. Appearance was some froth, and a color of golden honey. Aroma was malty and hoppy. Taste was interesting, and a nice hop bitterness that lasted a while. Palate was crisp to say the least. Overall, this was an interesting beer to do a blind taste test on, and it definitely grew on me.

Clear yellow pour from a bottle, big white head. Aroma: big bright citrus sweetness with faint hint of pineapple. Very light body at first (finishes maltier), plenty of flavor; light lemon citrus, characteristic malt flavor of Southern German and Bohemia. Finish is spicy/herbal and grassy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden with a small white head that offers nice lacing. Nose is of your usual lager and cereals, the good stuff and not corn like some (most) mass-produced examples of the style. Taste is of honeyed malt, pils and crackery. Body is medium, so is carbonation and it is interesting enough. Overall a really nice and easy drinking golden lager.
