Clear, golden yellow, 1 inch white fizz head, that lasts 5 minutes. slight lacing. Aroma is skunky and hoppy (pronounced) good. Mouthfeel is too runny like water. Flavor is medium bitter.

Sampled at a tasting, from bottle... not much special about this. Poured gold, no standout aroma. Flavor was weak, but was crisp and refreshing. More of a summertime chugging beer. Nice, but not impressive.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Oldsmar Tap House. Poured up in a tankard clear gold with bright white head and cobweb lacing. It has a decent strength aroma with malty sweetness, a note of sugariness and pale malts that blend into floral hops. The taste begins both malty sweet and hoppy with growing floral hoppy notes mixed with a vague hop tart bitterness. The hops persist into the finish with tartness and floral notes. Nice warm weather session brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (355ml). Poured a pale yellow with a rocky, average sized head which was mostly diminishing. Aroma was of sweet malts, grain, hay, spicy hops (pepper) and some honey. Flavor was a light hop bitterness with sweet malts, grain, hay and a (light) peppery finish. Light bodied with lively carbonation, watery texture, dry mouthfeel and an ok finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Note: Best if consumed in a large hall, with a polka band playing, while eating a huge preztel. I’ve had this from a bottle and while at the Hofbrau House, and of course it’s better over there. In fact, if I was to rate this froma bottle only, I wouldn’t rate it very high really. But, from a tap in a huge serving vessel, it is very good. A little soapy tasting, but smooth and lively. Hints of honey, malts and bannana.

12 oz bottle from Total Wine in Jacksonville. Pours a light gold color with a smal head. Aroma is the typical German grainy scent. Taste is spicy with a bit of wheat to it. Better drinker than it looked.
