2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Dark copper/light brown colour. Medium, lacey head. Floral, hoppy aroma with a malt undertone. Slightly insipid, herbal taste with some malty notes, but actually a tad bland. Also watery, and lacking in carbonation. Not a drain pour, but not good or even average. Thanks, yogi_beera and pivo.

An amber beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is hoppy with notes of caramel. The flavor is sour with notes of caramel and lots of aroma hops leading to a lightly bitter end. The body is thin.

Brownish amber coloured. Malty aroma with strange fruity notes. Quite sweet and malty flavour. Boring and slightly thin. I don’t find much hops in this one.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 75. This draft brew from the brewpub in Hamburg Germany poured a small sized head of finely sized off-white colored bubbles that left behind a dark brown colored semi-transparent hazy uncarbonated body and a good lacing. The aroma was mildly malty and the mouth feel was very smooth and malty. The flavor contained notes of sweet malts toffee and mild caramel. This beer is the wrong color for the style of Pilsner and was down graded accordingly, but very good and extremely tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fully clear pale-amber; spritzily carbonated to good, dense cream-coloured head. Very malty nose, both pale & ambrée malts, sweet but fresh herbal smell also. Aroma of freshly separated double cream. Short bitterish onset, subsequently softening when the sweet malts appear, cookie-like. Retronasal and the tonguesides tell it however: here’s some serious hopping done. Flavour is again very herbal. Well bodied for a bottom-fermenting beer of only 5.1%. Slightly slick, long bitterish hop-aromatic aftertaste. I agree with Vienna because of the colour and the malts. But the hopping is entirely in the Northern German Pilsener style. I’m wondering at some of the comments that this wouldn’t be hoppy enough! Not for a Westcoast IPA, no... AND I like this - thanks Yogi & Pivo!

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mmmm a medium brown with substantial sticky, off-white foam. More aromatic hop components than flavor -- and mostly herbs around apiole. Some astringency in the feel. Thanks pivo and yogi!
