3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at their tap. Super pale/light yellow with lots of carb and a white head. Sweet malt nose a little mashy, but not in the mouth, where it’s a beautiful chalky sweetness with little grain or bitterness, and a bready resolution. Light-medium body just super, super soft, and vor Ort this is quite refreshing.

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Frisch gezapft. Das Bier ist für meinen Geschmack recht herb und nicht wirklich sonderlich süffig. Der Nachgeschmack ist sehr unangenehm. Bei Gelegenheit folgt ein Zweittest mit wirklich frisch Gezapftem...
