3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Clear dark gold; white head, leaving some lace. Green leaves smell, as from Buxus or Ligustrum , some grain too. Dry grains taste, with a pinch of caramel, sweetish and a spicey, peppery finish. Excellent balance! Medium at best, but the alcohol is there. This is rather remarkable. Where they went to fetch this Bavarian brewery is anybody’s guess, but it made no small difference, IMO.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 Very average beer. Golden coured, hazy appearance. Pineapples, some hops, easy drinkable. The body is slightly thin
Rerate: On tap. SO much more interesting than the bottled version. Starts off bitter and ends sweet for the change. Good full mouthfeel. German characteristics, which isn’t strange because it’s currently brewed in Bavaria.

Too much an alcoholic taste. For the rest it is a very soft sweet beer.
