2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (labeled as 5.5% now).
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly/fully diminishing.
Body is cloudy light to medium amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of banana, gum, clove.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Not sure where the "metric ton" of hops went, but maybe it’s not a fresh sample (even though this has only now just arrived to my local for the first time that I’m aware of, so you’d think it’s a new batch). Clunky and syrupy-watery and dull, with a sad appearance (esp. for a Weissbier). I’m frequently disappointed by Mahr’s, and this is no exception.
