bottle, picked up at pivoteka in pilsen. quite pale for an oktoberfest bier with no sign of a head; frothy and malty with a distinct aftertaste of tasmanian pride of ringwood hops which is no compliment

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma has hayish malt, slight sweet wort and bitter grassy hops.
Copper golden, with a lowish foamy head and low visible carbonation.
Essentially a Helles with a bit more pronounced malt and bitterhop flavors, the balance is still good though.
Solid malt body, but strangely feels a bit thinnish on the palate.
This new Superior comes in the series of beers Hacker brings out in swing-top bottles, unfortunately it is not as good as its predecessors, at least not as good as the excellent Animator.
