2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hay and malt in the aroma. Pours pale gold with a nice fluffy white head. Honey sweet and loamy with a touch of hay and some flower flavors. Way too sweet to be appealing to my personal taste.

On tap at English Garden in Munich. Bright gold color with frothy white head. Slightly sweet malty aroma: wheaty. Very smooth taste, malty and flowery but dry enough to keep drinking. Perfect for a sunny day at a beer garden.

Munich - Pours dark gold, there is a high amount of wheat in the smell. It tastes the same with much more hop flavor. Very hoppy and bitter.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle... Poured a brilliant golden yellow with a large white head. Head faded leaving notable lacing. Aromas were malt, toasty and wheat. Flavor was more of the same, although there was not much there. Mouthfeel left something to be desired. As all the others have said, this would most likely be much better at the Hofbrau Haus

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Golden color, no head poured from a bottle. Slightly skunky right out of the bottle. Crisp palate due to carbonation. Hint of malty flavor lasts a while. Nothing special, but very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden color with nice white head. Aroma of sweet malt. Flavor is primarily sweet malt with just enough hop bitterness for an attempt at some balance. A nice Munich lager. I bet it would taste better at the Hofbrauhaus.

Clear Golden with a medium foamy white head. Somewhat skunky, reminds me of St. Pauli Girl. Cereal taste with a copper penny tangyness. Nothing special.

Pours a fairly light yellow color. Aroma is grainy and sweet. A little bit of a malty/creamy scent as well. Malty flavor up front. Fisnish seems to be a little bitter and grainy.
