(bottle, traded with DerDoppelbock) Hazy, yellow colour with yeast floaties and a big fluffy white foam. Dusty, light-sweet malty and slightly citric aroma with a shy hoppy note. Medium bitter flavour, light to medium body with a crispy carbonation. Malty yeasty, slightly fruity taste; dry-ish bitter, slightly hoppy finish. Okay, not more.

Bottle, thanks to Derdoppelbock for this. Hazy pale gold. Lasting white head. Yeast, some pale malt aroma, bit of citrus fruit. OK in mouth, a touch of cardboard in mouth. Citrus hops on end that show hints of zesty lime that I like. Refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slight hazy lemon yellow with good stabile white head. Aroma is very malty and clear sent of fresh dried cereals, some honey without the sweetness and some hints of herbs and hops. anyway, the aroma is attactive and well in ballans. The taste is smooth, fresh malty, has a slight fruity touch aqnd ends with a complex flowery, soft hoppy finish. Thanks Sebastian for this elegant and very tastefull thirst-killing brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2006 LCRBM. Slightly citric aroma. Malty, slightly hoppy flavor. Hints of citrus in the aftertaste. Pleasant and inoffensive. 6 3 6 4 10 = 2.9.
Re-rated in the relative quietness at home, without the company of a lot of raters and a lot of other beers the beer deserves a higher rating. Bottle, bought at the Trinkgut in Nordhorn. Blonde, cloudy, frothy head. Grassy, citric aroma. Firm hopbitter flavor. Grassy, citric, even a bit earthy flavor. Sharpish, long oily bitter aftertaste. Good!
