nice job for the style, crisp on the tongue, good carbonation, refreshing, quite light - but not a light weight

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Some good citrus and honey elements to the flavour, but oddly herbal and floral as well. Very drinkable, easygoing beer and a good nod to its German roots, but the flavour profile is just a bit odd for the style and feel.
