3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Clear, golden colour with a beautiful and stable foamy white head. Sweet and bready pale malt aroma with sour dough and light herbal hops. Moderately sweet flavour with a light but present hoppy bitterness, medium to full bodied with an almost crispy carbonation. Pale malt-character, bready taste with light notes of honey and herbal spice; sweet-bitter finish, malt-accented with a light herbal hoppy note and a fairly well-bound alcohol (01.05.08).

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge, very fine & dense yellowish head over well-carbonated orange-golden beer. Glue - and a lot of it - solvent-ish. Some warm malts, very slightly toasted. Slightly sweetish, bready, but again with glue/solvent notes in the taste. Also, toasted, even more outspoken, orange/apricot buns. A bit sharpish MF, slight burning. Medium bodied, quite slick. Some alcohol, but discreet. Decent, but not very exciting Heller Bock. A little less ethyl acetate might have made it quite good... Thanks to Alt Frankie and her crew!
