2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl pullcap bottle, Südstar Getränke. Not the raunchy Viking dwarf, but the mention of "open cask fermentation" fascinated me enough to revisit the less than inspiring Lösch-Zwerg. Onset of a lemonade nose, with some hay and sulphur. Watery body, transporting apparently natural hop cones in low dosage, both a bready and a mineral edge and something lively that is hard to grasp - might be the yeast profile? A bit inconsistent and rough.

330 ml bottle. Thanks S! Pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of grains, some butter and wet paper. Flavour of grainy malts, weak grassy bitterness, toned down herbal notes and sweetness. Light bodied, high-ish carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. Drinkability is good. Decent.
