3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.
Pale lemon yellow colour; Half finger head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with very slight carbonation; Pungent smell of lager malt, with slightly choking floral, grains, strong molasses, thick bread, yeast, light lemon and grass; Close to medium sweet taste of lager malt, with light grains, floral, light molasses, strong bread, biscuits, yeast, strong lemon, strong bitter hops and grass; Close to light body. Thin, dry and fairly crisp palate; Mouth feel is pretty malty, more lager than a Pils, in a pretty thin and dry background. Strong floral, fairly grainy, very biscuity. Neat sweetness to balance the very lemony hops. Pretty nice!... Hoppiness is floral, lemon and grass in nose, and a lot stronger in taste. Bitterness is strong , dynamic and tasty for a lasting, fairly high astringent sweet bitter finish; Dry after taste, Crisp and quite bitter to mouth.
Comments: This one feels like somewhere between a Premium Lager and a Pilsener, due to its rather light body and thin palate, but make no mistake it has a malty and rather wholesome backbone, and being topped with a lively hoppiness. A good one among the average German Pils, easy and drinkable.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a thick foamy white head...lively...nice lacing and retention. Aroma is very subdued but has mild straw and noble hoppy spice. Flavor is significantly hoppy with spice and earthy/grassy notes...mildly minerally. Mouthfeel is medium and lively...a little slick...Finish is dry and earthy/grassy/almost resinous.

Had this at Hopfingerbrau, Mitte, Berlin, Germany Sunday 17th November 2013 Clear gold, busy carbonation. Decent enough refreshing pils, touch metallicy in mouth leaving a tinny bitterness. It lacks sweetness which is good. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1
