2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Hazy golden colour, dense white head. Looks like a Weizen. Aroma is light sweet, malty, straw, bit of lemon. Flavour is sweet, malty, almost like oatmeal porridge with sugar, light hoppy bitter finish. Light to medium bodied. A bit too sweet to my liking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Such a beautiful looking beer. Honey yellow unflitered and a foamy head. Nose is muted honey and caramel. In the mouth it is full and very easy to drink. A real ’german’ beer hall feel. Not complex but lots of bread and honey. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from the Bavarian Bier Cafe, Parramatta. Pours a cloudy light amber, with a small head and good lacing. The aroma is a wonderfully alluring mix of grassy hops and rich caramel malt. The initial flavour is slightly oily pine hops, moving into a smooth caramel finish. A very satisfying beer.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2014 Enjoyed on-tap at Chancey Smith’s. An orangey colour with a good mouthfeel. Light edge, (rereview in bottle 2014) far better. Still a good drinkability.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dull gold. Almost still beneath a creamy head. Bread dough and vinegar with some vague orchard smells. Taste is sweet - mostly light caramel with a bit of fruit. Not much yeast character. Hints of grassy bitterness. Quaffable but not very lively.
