3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from Bierzwerg. How unusal for the German beer scene, a top-fermented beer with only 3.8% abv. Looks lovely in the glass, chestnut-golden colour with a dense and creamy white head. Hoppy aroma with a touch of citrus fruit. Light-bodied yet full of flavour: good and clean malty base with hints of dark malts and a touch of lemony hops. Very, very nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Willems Urenkel for that beer. Interesting name for a beer. Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts mild, but not washy. Fine malty with spicy hints. A bit wheaty-earty. Well balanced mild finish, quite drinkable. Not bad!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Clear, amber to copper colour with a medium-sized and slightly tanned foamy head. Cara-malty and herbal and slightly metallic hoppy notes with traces of citrus in the background. Bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied with a crisp carbonation. Mildly cara-malty base with traces of black tea, accompanied by herbal hops; slim but not watery herbal hoppy finish with delicately fruity notes in the aftertaste. Likeable, but not outstanding. Reminds of a light Altbier. 16.XI.12

Bottle(thanks to the Lake of Constance!): Amber coloured, stable creamy and lacy white head, toasty-fruity nose, some subdued hops detectable; mild bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied as expected; delicate toasty-caramelly finish with a dryish-hoppy aftertaste. Not bad, worth a try…
