Bionda limpida con schiuma bianca vaporosa. Molto semplice ma godibile, con un buon malto accompagnato da una leggera amarezza. Carbonazione media.

Gravity fass @Fass&Cask (Rome). Pours in a ceramic glass, big and persistent foam. Aroma of malt, milk bread, cereal, honey, hay. Flavour is a bit unbalanced, medium malty with a low bitterness, quite clean. Light body, light carbonation. A bit basic.

ippopotamo36 (1771) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 1, 2016
Gravity keg at Fass&Cask in Rome-Italy. No description of the appearance, served in a ceramic glass. Nose: rustic, milled barley, chicken farm. Mouth: bread, the bitterness is there a bit too shy and mild, peppery finish and again rustic maltiness. Liked it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Moravius (1131) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2015
Flasche (50 cl) von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Goldgelb, klar; üppige Schaumkrone. - In der Nase flache Malzsüße, milde grasige Hopfennoten, stumpfe Hopfenextrakt-Töne. - Im Antrunk etwas zu prominente Malzsüße, dazu stumpf grasige Hopfenherbe, aber auch schöne Zitronenöl-Noten. Etwas milder rezent als üblich. Im Abgang wenig aromatische, etwas schroff grasige Herbe vom Hopfenextrakt. Unschön stumpf-bitterer, trockener Nachtrunk. - Kein Klassiker, nur ein zweitklassiges Pils. Könnte wesentlich besser sein, wenn es nicht vom Hopfenextrakt verdorben würde.

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Draft at Meinel Brau in Hof. Clear pale gold with a fine white head. Lemon-y and minerallic and balanced, it’s less expressive in the nose than the Zwickelpils, but is noticeably "cleaner" in it’s lemon oil Noble hop presentation. Lightly sweet, medium-low bitterness, juicy and hoppy with a trace off-note of laundry detergent. Has good malt richness but the carbonation is just a tad fizzy / rough.

fiulijn (19385) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 8, 2014
Blond color. Mediocre aroma of malt and cereals, but fresh. Nice malt flavor, simple but a bit crispy, with correct bitterness but just faint hop qualities.
Simple but fresh and nice.
