3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2005 bottle. Fine bubbles rise vigorously to create a large, long-lived fluffy white head atop a bright goldenrod colored body. Pils malt and some grassiness in the nose, with a rather sugary feel to it. Quite sweet to begin, in flavor, but lager yeast and awesome grassy hoppiness prevail upon the uber malt. I like this, I’m not afraid to admit it. Probably ageable for a year too. Light spices, some hay, bit of vanilla. Medium-full body. Low, natural carbonation. Bit of apricots on the end.

Pours golden and a bit cloudy. Tastes malty and a bit sweet for a pilsner. Good flavor and nice finish. Really drinkable beer for a 7% alcohol content. You can really see the bock side of the beer come out. A nice combination.

Came from the tap a light amber color with a thin white head. Moderate sweet malt essence with a light citrus hop finish. Refreshing taste considering the alcohol content.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. Fresh before June 05 on label. Poured out a darker shade of straw yellow. It has a thin, fast fading white head, that left a slight layer of frothy foam on top of the beer itself. Aromas are mostly of lager yeasts, slightly musty. Some lemony aromas here, not appropiate for the style. My guess is that they used stale grain to brew this beer. Medium mouthfeel, nothing special there. Finished too lemony for my liking. Needs serious work, and fresher ingredients.
