   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
MartinT (7974) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Toasted bread and light caramel build a plump body before herbal hops and their bitterness balance out the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A ring of foam dips into the krug.
-The hops took a while to appear; they were able to balance out the finish, but they were strangely shy in the aroma and flavor profile.
-Soft carbonation and agile sugars made for a pleasurable mouthfeel.
-This was a quite drinkable, rustic, perhaps rough lager.

On tap at the brewery gasthof.

Koelschtrinker (10848) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Herber Antrunk mit deutlich wässriger Note, dennoch ansprechend würzig, in Teilen auch mit rauchigen Aromen. Mit der Zeit wird das Bier würziger, die Wässrigkeit ist trotz Präsenz wenig aufdringlich. Deutlich holzig, die Würzigkeit wirkt dadurch trocken. Gelungenes und süffiges Bierchen. 9/10/11/11//11

chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2011
From bottle at the Pigs Ear Beer Festival, London on 6 December 2006. Pale straw colour. Very doughy, bready aroma with a whiff of butterscotch. Pretty much more of the same on the palate - less bready and without the butterscotch. Very soft mouthfeel. Ends up relatively clean but not very inspiring.

50cl Bottle at In de Wildeman. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of pale malts, a bit of plastic, green apples. Flavour is light malty, light plastic, light bready, light grassy finish with more plastic. Light to medium bodied. Seemed off..

MiP (13676) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Mild bready aroma, a little sweet and spicy from the hops. Looks clear yellow in the mug. The flavour is sweet, bready, slightly vinous. Mild bitterness. Tastes a little stronger ABV than your average lager.

bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2010
Real powerful nose of weetabix with an underlying acacia honey, one of the most powerful noses I’ve had from a bottled lager. Body of teh beer is class, nice & rounded with light conditioning. The flavour is again nice & full on , there’s a blast of cereal with that nice delicate honeyed background, but also a purveying slightly green, earthy , damp straw & vegetal character, its not unpleasant but wouldn’t be top of my flavour charts. Now this bottle only has a months shelf life & I’m 2 weeks into that when trying, but I would love to try this on draught to see what its like & I reckon it would be a belter. Obvioulsy I can only score it from what I’ve tasted.

Clear golden with a medium white head. Malty aroma with hints of grassy hops. Flavour was dry with grassy hops, malt and straws. Finished dry and bitter.
