2012-05-31, bottle from the brewery, plastic cork, purchased Oct 2011, 7-4-8-4-15=38
Hazy golden to light amber color. The aroma is fading away, with light vanilla and fruit jam. The flavor is also mellowing, with sweetish malt and jab, apricots, a touch of citrus; correct bitterness.
A good beer, but now losing power.
2011-09-16, bottle from the brewery, plastic cork, purchased June 2011, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Hazy, or cloudy, light amber color, with medium sized creamy head. Very nice, deep yet delicate hop aroma, like a lemon tart, some vanilla. Round and strong body; sweetish malt flavor, less German and crispy than the Amarillo Strong Ale (but still with a background of that crispness), also a bit sweeter; strong hopping, giving the right amount of bitterness and very nice fruity character, tropical fruits; pleasant alcohol warmth, well blended together.
Less emotional than the Amarillo Strong Ale, but excellent as well.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(75 cl bottle from Wein Kultur Bier Shop, Moabit) Pours a hazy amber with little, off-white head and lace. Aroma is a bit muddy with citrus, yeasty and malty notes. Full-bodied, softly carbonated with a slightly bitter finish. Taste is a bit unbalanced, yeasty, mildly bitter with fruity notes. For 20€ this beer was a bit of a letdown.
