3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Luscious hay and grass danking across pale/pils malt, very floral hops even pushing the sweetness a bit. Pours dark reddish golden, fizzy with a quickly-dissipating cola head. Taste is sweet and lightly grainy, hints of metal, otherwise sweet floral hops with a touch of citrus and mineral, good straightforward malt flavor. Medium body and somewhat refreshing, light booze in at the end. Not super clean, but actually held up pretty well!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
[Bottle] Hazy amber in color. Soapy white head. Sweet malts in the aroma. Signs of oxidation (papery) in the nose. Taste is light floral hops, toffee, grass/straw and caramel corn. Didn’t see a ’best by’ date on the bottle, but seems like age and distance was not too kind to this beer. Tasting notes from 2012.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tampa, Fl - Total Wine & More - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a slightly murky medium copper with a soft off-white head. Aroma has some brown sugar accents, a hint of molasses. Flavor is sweet and belly warming with some dates, a touch of chocolate, a bit of brown sugar sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice thick textured feel to it. Not bad at all.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a murky brown into pint glass. Earthy and vegetable aroma. Has almost a carrot or tomato soup like aroma. It is odd but not as off putting as it might seem. Flavor is bready and earthy. Has a wheat characteristic that lingers. Very interesting beer and I enjoy trying a style that I have not had before. Will have to seek out more beer in this style to compare.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Simpel, einfach und langweilig. Leicht nüssig, etwas malzig, vollkommen unspektakulär. Natürlich trinkbar, dafü mit einer seltsam sauren Endnote.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours out of the bottle (with many thanks to Culchiem!) in a cloudy, dirty golden colour with airy low head and medium body. Aroma of straw and hops - quite boring. Taste of hops, straw, nuts, leaves, caramel and dust. Grassy-earthy finish. Easy to drink, not that bad, but in the end just average.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz at my place after working 12 hours. Pours murky sewer brown. Aroma is very light, yeast, raw rye, grass, bread, malt. Taste has a rye bite, some yeast and malt, but really smoothes out. Surprisingly interesting and subtly good.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a cloudy golden brown with a decent white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and florals. Taste is malt, grain, citrus, and floral. Thought it well made and tasty.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle into a small snifter.
Slightly cloudy yellowish-amber-gold color. Decent head.
This is a rather fruity zwickel lager from Bavaria. It has a good aroma and a is quite tasty. Mouthfeel is the lager’s weak spot.
