A nice clear beer with good co2 saturation the foam is reducing towards a small foam coverage. The aroma of the beer is some what metallic. The taste is a sweet start with some hoppy after taste but de aftertaste is short. The metallic that is in the aroma is also on the pallet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone By Belleketels

#854 Goldgelb, leicht trüb und der weiße Schaum ist zu schnell verflogen. Deutliches hefiges Aroma. Im Antrunk dann wiederum deutlich hefig und säuerlich, wird durch das Malz aber gut abgepuffert. Einem Sekt durchaus ähnlich, wenn auch mehr plump und derb als frisch und prickelnd. Der Hopfen im Abgang ist auch eher grobschlächtig, ja fast schon bitter, denn aromatisch. Die stets vernehmbare Alkoholnote zieht das Geschmackserlebnis für mich auf unterdurchschnittlich. Es wird daher bei diesem einen Glas bleiben. Test vom 10.10.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,7,8,8,8 - 8,10
