2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear golden yellow, mid-sized white head. Malty, slightly hoppy with a harsh bitterness. Not my personal favourite. Probably needs a re-rate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of floral hops and honey-tinged pale malts, pretzels and a hint of seafood, surprisingly fresh. flavour is mostly the same, very rustic and minerally, with a subdued graininess and lots of barnyard, grass and salt. medium-bodied, with a nicely balanced sweetness and average carbonation.

Közép sárga nem teljesen, átlátszó. A hab tartós.
Illata erősen komlós.
Közepesen testes, édeskés. Kemény komlós íz, bejön.
Kiváló német sör.

Draft @ brewpub. Dark gold. Lasting white head. Malty aroma smells very rich. Very good, quaffable, easy palate. The flavors are first like the aromas, rich and worty and malty. Then they become nice and dry. Delicious!
