3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,50L.
Compact and friable head; good persistence and adhesion. Yellow pale color, much limpid and with a good fizz. Fresh, flowery and enough alcoholic scent. Rather prickly taste with light features of weiss bier. Light notes of wine cellar, must and withered grape. Balanced and stinging end, agreeable but without marvel.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Perhaps because it came all the way from Austria.. I detect a small amount of the skunk =( Otherwise, nicely balanced between malty sweetness and some hop flavor which i can’t quite identify, plus a sort of metallic flavor. I wouldn’t get it again, but mostly I got it for the swing-top bottle ;)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Little light wheaty aroma. Not much hops at all but easy to drink and not too malty. Not complex, with a slightly sweet finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale yellow with minimal carbonation under a sudsy white that leaves a huge web of lace. Aroma finds sharp herbal hops over lightly soured lagering yeasts and grain. Malts are thick and add a honey-sweet balance before the hops kick in, all held together with hearty cereal grains. Vastly similar but quite a step up from an all-malt Premium Lager... a fine transitional to get folks turned on to better beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden, lingering head. Fresh, but light saazy aroma, faint sweet malty notes. Medium-light bodied, moderately sweet maltiness, touch watery with some minerally notes late (bordering on metallic) Malts seems to get chewier, and more straw like (good thing) Pleasant, but moderate clean bitterness. This is very delicate, yet very satisfying. This is the kind of stuff I could drink by the mass.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A light yellow beer with a huge white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy, while the flavor is sweet with notes of both hops, yeast, and honey. But the body is thin. I find it boring.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured with a medium body that has a slight haze. The fluffy white head was long lasting. The aroma had strong raw potatoes with some potatoes and floral hops. The taste was sharp celery with some light grapefruit. Refreshing and quick. This is a good summer beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle, from Everetts Liquor Store in South Beloit, WI. Clear gold-straw color, a bit bubbly, with a huge frothy white head that decays quickly...grainy, honey-sweet nose with whispers of lavender and urine....moderately sweet up front, firmly malty with lots of grassy character, light caramel/butterscotch, clean snappy (Saaz?) finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy yellow body, thin creamy off-white head. Light, sweet aroma, nectary with notes of lemon, grassy, biscuity, and cerealy. Soft body, quite sweet, densely floral with touches of honey and lemon and a bready, biscuity finish. Aftertaste of grassy, earthy hops. I think it’s a bit too sweet at the forefront, without anything to cut the sugars until the finish. 16 ounces will be plenty. Interesting.
