2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled - Criterion Leicester. An old gold coloured beer with a pool of tan head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is sweet and malty and typical of the style. The taste is sweet and a little fruity with some apple flavours. No great shakes but acceptable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange-gold a shade darker than your bog-standard lager. Vague, soapy, distinctly curryhouse aroma with a background blade of grass and slight shrubby impressions as it warms. Decent grassy taste with more hop and bitterness than expected. Sweet with honey-dipped paper notes and a metallic streak. Drinkable, though certainly not superior.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2009 A Mes rate: bottle from Quinns.
Typical very clean gold German looks with a very thin white head. Metallic hoppage and creamy malt aroma. Similar flavour. Rather astringent. Faint bitterness in the finish. Full of corn all round. Run of the mill at best.

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.

Bottle found as "Festbier Superior" on local bottle shop and shared with MichaelBruch. Aroma of warm hay and golden grains. Taste of fresh grass, light malt and green nuts. Little bit too light-bodied for my taste, but easy to drink though.
