2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma: honey, malty, flowery.
Appearance: hazy straw color, poor white head.
Taste: low bitterness (herbs), floral notes (perfume), malt with honey.
Palate: low body and medium carbonation.
Overall: Old one thus its taste very pretty bad. Nothing special.

Riecht bananig, schmeckt doch ziemlich süß-fruchtig und schaumig. Kann man trinken.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
nice, very tender banana-malt nose, but tastes way too sweet, with not enough bittering hops to balance it. Also, this odd metallic-sulphuric overtone, like in all the organic beers I’ve tasted so far. Not too bad, though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 Rotating Draught@cafe Atlantik, Freiburg. - rather underwhelming, watery Helles that is too shy of hops and body to be called a pilsener. Not much to dislike, nothing much to like. Very light-bodied. Carelessly shy use of advertised Tettnanger: please let a new generation of brewers for taste, not gulpability rebrew this?
Rerate +0,5, bottled 10/2013: curiously the delicate Tettnager perfume comes better to the fore in the bottled version, giving this light and soapy brew some much-needed character; more silky smooth body as well. //Rerate 06/2014 draught: this beer seems to vary slightly in "hoppage": the glasses I had today were extraordinarily fresh, sparkling with flowery hop zest and crisp malts...Drank back-to-back with Gaffel Kölsch in 0,2L servings and held its own in crispness. Pretty sure that was not the World Cup atmosphere’s doing.+0.3 until another dull bottle should hit me.
