Bit watery pale ale with some spices. The herbs aren’t very outspoken though, makes the beer a bit boring.

draught@Erzbierschof - bright reddish-bronze beer with a chaotic but persistent foam; perfumy and chewy nose with lemongrass in the front; coriander comes next; not much more can be detected below them; medium-bodied; pretty tasty and fairly bitter; decently dry; coriander dominates in the finish leaving lemongrass the second role

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden / light copper with an off white head. The aroma has pils malt, crackers, light vegginess, hint of coriander and an overall mushiness to it. It has a medium / light body that is fairly smooth and has light carbonation. The flavor starts out with a bit more toast to the malt than expected, hints of lemongrass, some dark crackers and a bit of nuttiness. The finish has a touch of spicy hops, grass and coriander. This is okay, but was hoping for something a bit different. Still worth trying.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Slightly passed its best before. Poured a hazy copper colour with a thin off-white head. Woody aroma with some butterscotch and dried fruit. Initial flavours of caramel, lemongrass and ginger. The finish was orange peal, toffee and coriander. Flavourings were fairly bold in this, would have been nice to have been able to pair it with some dim sum.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle bought at Craftissimo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.
Clear golden honey amber colour with some dirt-like yeast sediments; One finger head with thick, crumpety off white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with slight carbonation; Fragrant sweet aroma of ale malt, with strong lemongrass, coriander, grapefruit peels, yeast, spices and lemon; Light sweet taste of light ale malt, with light grapefruit zest, spices, bread, dry crackers, yeast, liquorices, lime and sharp grassy hops; Medium body. Dry and pretty slick palate; Mouth feel is light pale ale, grapefruit taste is only in light zest. Really strong lemongrass character, zesty and spicy. Also really dry and biscuit. Hmmm… Hoppiness is grapefruit zest nose, bitter lime, liquorices and sharp grassy taste. Pretty astringent with lasting medium bitter finish; Dry after taste. Light crisp and quite bitter to mouth.
Comments: A light brew with strong lemongrass and coriander in nose than in taste. Very dry and crisp. Pretty refreshing but pretty light weight. Pair well with any kind of meals not just dim sum. So-so, and I wish it carries a bit more weight.

Botella de 33 cl en el lupulo. Mayo de 2012. Sabores cítricos (lima, limón, pimienta...) y especiados en una cerveza de cuerpo ligero que se bebe sin ningún problema. Muy sencilla. Una curiosidad sin más.
