3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl swing top bottle, from the Trinkgut in Lippstadt, pours with a clear gold body that supports a thin white head. The modest aroma offers up sugary sweetness, pears, sweet ripe green apples and a faint floral hoppiness. The taste is Malt Liquor like with light skinned sugary sweet fruity esters and some chemical booze. I do get a slight redeeming maltiness around midway. Overall sweet fruity esters run the show here.
