Moravius (891) - Beijing, CHINA - MAR 27, 2015
Flasche (50 cl) aus einem Kaiser’s in Berlin (MHD: 9/15). - Sattes Goldgelb, blank. - In der Nase mildes helles Malz und leicht krautiger Hopfen. - Antrunk sehr mild hellmalzig mit blassem, leicht krautigem Hopfen und ganz schwacher Zitronenschale im Hintergrund. Zarte Anklänge von grünen Äpfeln und Heu. Deutliche aber nicht dicke Malzsüße. Gut rezent, für meinen Geschmack zu sehr; dünner Körper. Im Abgang störende Noten von feuchter Pappe und Blech. Der Nachtrunk ist geradezu beleidigend nichtssagend. - Allzu fades Helles, angenehm malzig und süffig aber viel zu schwach gehopft um mir zu gefallen.
