bottle, courtesy of pivnizub! Hazy orange colour, fluffy white head, fruity nose. Medium-bodied, malty start with quite pleasant fruity flavours and a pleasant hoppy bitterness. Much better than expected.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle(as Apostelbräu First Bavarian Pale Ale): Cloudy to "milky", big off-white - very stable - and very creamy head; sourish-grainy nose with aromas of unripe wheat, turpentine and yeast; moderate dry sourish-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, slightly adstringent MF; lingering sourish-fruity and bitter finish. Too sour, no pleasure…

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
0,50 bottle at Peschiera del Garda-Italy. Pours extremely cloudy yellow bright, huge frothy white cap. Nose: citric hops, a bit of pine needles. Mouth: kind of confusing but ok, grainy with a strong American style orientation. Far too bitter and herbal in the end. Inoffensive

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours a clear pale copper with a huge off-white head. Dry caramel malt with grassy dry hops. I can really taste that German malt, has some faded grassy hops. Maybe slightly better than your average German macro lager.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Man, that’s a huge head of foam! I see a cloudy yellow gold liquid underneath.
A mix of hop smells I get. Grass, pine, a bit of citrus and, that smell of spelt malt that I’ve come across before.
The taste is somewhat hoppy, grass stands out I think, the spelt malt, as usual, adds an almost vegetal character to it. Not much sweetness to this Pale Ale.
Nice mouthfeel, easy to drink.
I like this but it does take some getting used to.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma has light caramel, fruit, and herbal/spicy notes. It pours a hazy (bordering on cloudy) dark orange with a large creamy off-white head that has great retention. There is a lot of soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel and faint citrus. The finish has some moderate herbal and spicy notes with some light lemon peel.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Babyfood banana and honey. Clear amber, thick sticky head. Honey flavor, awfully metallic, tangy. Soft carbonation, thin. Has a very British feel, and not much in the way of a recognizable hop presence.
