3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half litre bottle, poured into oversized Tripel Karmeliet tulip. A: Golden, clear, large head, moderate retention, lively looking. S: Saaz hop, lots of hay. T: Strong hints of rye and sour dough, gave way to a malty sweetness which gave it a good balance. M: Light body, moderate carbonation. O: A great example of a beer from a small Upper Franconian brewpub. So easy to throw down in large quantities with the monster sized Schnitzels they serve.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Fresh bottle at Cafe Abseits, in Bamberg Nov. 2012: Polished golden. Creamy, persistent, sticky white head. Light yogurty note accompanies DMS, wet hay, vinegar, stewed apple in the curiously dirty nose. Underlying golden raisin, toasted bread and marmalade. Soft carbonation, flimsy body. Sweetly malty with plenty of toasty Munich, though there is a peculiar marshmallow note and appley twang plaguing the sweet grain, which consequently renders the malt severely dull, lifeless, and flaccid. Sweet cooked corn and other vegetal DMS notes amplify the excessive sweetness and muddled nature. Fusel alcohol in there as well, along with a loathsome pearlike sweetness. Finishes fuzzily malty with wet paper paired with fleeting toast. Nauseating after one gulp. Rife with flaws.

Absolut in Ordnung ohne groß Punkte zu machen. Leicht hopfig mit einer guten Malznote und hier und da etwas Getreidigkeit. Nix Spezielles, aber alles in allem ganz ok.
