Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2013
Mittelgelb, feinporiger Schaum. Sehr blumig-florales Malzaroma. Weiches Brauwasser, solide Malzbasis mit Aromahopfen im letzten Drittel. Sehr süffig, erfrischend und rund. Sehr gut, allerdings fehlt es an Würze und Tiefgang, um an die Referenz-Klasse ran zu reichen.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in golden with medium head. Nice slightly malty in the nose. Bit sweetish in the taste and extremely refreshing. Great one.

McTapps (6482) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Clear golden colour with steady and fluffy head. Taste of mild citrus fruits, coriander, hay, grass and old grapes. Nice one due to its refreshness, but in the end it is just nothing really special. Solid Export beer.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2012 Bottle, courtesy of Tarjei. It pours a clear, golden body under a minimal-sized, off-white head. Fruity and grainy nose with hints of cellar. Not bad, but rather boring. The same can be said about the flavor, with its fruityness and pale malts failing to impress. There’s some bitterness going on, both initially and in the end, but it’s still a dull beer. Rating: 5-3-5-3-11-2.7. 120504

Bottle. Having this one again, I sort of agree with my previous rating, but there’s no cellar hints, and in general it’s quite pleasant and quenching. Don’t feel the need to add more coments than this. 121019
