2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Erinnert mich an ein Helles der kuriosen Art: Zuerst leicht hopfig, dann zunehmend malzig-süßlich, meinetwegen auch Honig. Insgesamt ein Allerweltsbier!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sort of standard German pils aroma: fresh noble hops. Perhaps a note of honey. Almost clear brown-amber with a ginger ale-like fizziness that created a lasting bubbly white cover. Very strong hops flavour accentuated by a not quite crisp maltiness. This beer is not very bitter, but it is fairly dry, and so does not have a lot of residual sweetness that may need offsetting bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, clean finish. Very nice and only vague honey charasteristics.
