3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 11, 2015 Bottle from the brewery getränkemarkt. Pours hazy gold with a tall-building and lasting white head. There’s some chunky yeast globules in the bottom of the bottle that don’t make it into the first pour but on subsequent pours it does turn the experience quite doughy and muddled. Without that, it’s enjoyably hoppy in the aroma, the yeast imparts a musty minerality, and the malt is simple but pleasant baked bread and crackers. Lightly sweet to off-dry with snappy bitterness and some juicy yeast acidity. Decently full mouth feel and lots of froth from the high carbonation, and while the finish is bitter and well-matched and pleasant, the whole effect isn’t all that special. Seems to be well-made, in decent shape, and benefiting from the yeast more than hurt by it.
