3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from local IKEA, BB 18 10 2016, large sample. Clear golden color, short frothy head. Aroma of grainy malt, bit spicy hop, quite typical german classic pils with slight skunky and bit herbal notes. Soft to medium bitter in taste, some extra malty sweetness not usually found in pale lagers. Which makes it quite full bodied. Pretty good for what I expected actually.
