3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours golden in color with a small whitish head. Ripe mandarin, strawberries and floral notes in aroma, a bit in the tropical way it feels here. Mandarin sweetness with hints of grapefruit bitterness in taste. Perhaps more of some cantaloupe notes are present later on with some grassyness in aftertaste though. Delicious.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Slightly hazy copper color. Floral and piney hop aroma with hints of onion and sulfur. Lemony, biscuity, honeyish and bitter flavor with lemony dishwash detergent note. Medium body. Fairly original taste, but soapiness is somewhat disturbing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Golden and a bit hazy, medium-sized off-white head that slowly collapses, pineapples and peaches with a piney touch in the hoppy and malty nose; medium bodied and soft, moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour; lingering mild to moderate bitter-hoppy finish, balanced by sweetish malt. Nice, nice…

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottles BB 28/02/2014, Edeka Mohr Bonn. Pours a fizzy mudwater cantelope-yellow. More melon and citrus in the nose. Palate is nearly as smooth as an ale, but runny and easy-drinking as a lager. Very active carbonation. Grapefruit rind, some pine and grass notes, unripe cantelope mellon. Extra points for the courageous idea to cold lager this PA-hopped, CZ-malted, succesful DE-US crossover. Very refreshing, with minor rough edges and some hop powder floatees.

Honey, golden in colour with a nice rather large pillowy white head. Good lacing. Noses of grapefruit, citrus with hints of honey melon and floral aromas. Shows a light fizz with light slick and velvety texture. Medium sweet with light dry bitterness. Short to medium pleasantly lasting finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from P&M-Getränke. Orange, peachy color with a decent head, leaving a nice lacing. Rich floral aromas with apricot, melon, grass, lime, kiwi, and honey. Great, refreshing sweetness, defined by fruits, going along with a decent maltiness and hints of honey. Not too bitter, focused on the fruitiness, which stays on the palate the whole time, and is still the most recognizable ingredient, when hop bitterness in the end becomes notable. Smooth mouthfeel, with a dry aftertaste. Supported very well by a fitting carbonation, which is rather low. Missing bitterness makes the beer a little too one-dimensional in the end, leaving me a bit unsatisfied after a great start.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Awesome smell but disappointed with the taste.
The smell is really fruity and nice.
The appearance is like a normal pilsner.
