3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, at Gasthaus zum Goldenen Löwen in Hallstadt, Bamberg November 2006. Gold, thin white head and moderate condition. Gentle hops and sweet grain in the nose, full and sweet in the mouth with the grainy maltiness dominating a low hop note. Lingering sweetness in the finish but with a more assertive balance of hop bitterness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20

Light to medium, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and faint grassy hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty and lightly sweetish, faint caramel and light grassy hoppyness. Sweetish pils - OK but could use more hoppyness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewery in Nov. 2013: Dull and simple nose of hard lemon candy, hay, fennel seed and a hint of alcohol. Subdued carbonation softly prickles. Firmly hoppy and mildly spicy with a pronounced Spalt punch yielding to a slippery fruitiness. Pils malt is somewhat grainy and raspy as it lends a deeply toasted hat accent amid a muted grassy hop twang. Hint of flowers, as well. Finishes soft and maltcentric, with restrained Spalt and some grainy malt. Pretty straightforward to me. Malt is a tad sloppy and doesn’t seem all that skillfully extracted, and the hops aren’t very dynamic or vital. Middle of the road.
