1st beer at the 22 Tap Takeover at Galloper des jahres, Hamburg on12th Dec 2014. Pleasant surprise, as we did not know the event was on until we walked through the door! Anyway back to this beer: Light amber in colour with a smell off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits and biscuit maltiness, so a fairly sweet nose. The taste is also on the sweet side with the biscuity malts leading the way and the fruits as an undertone. Mild spiciness arrives towards the end of each sip which finishes with a dry bite. Great start to a lovely early even session of unusual and interesting taps.

Hazy golden beer, medium off-white head. Nose is grassy, fruity, citric notes, malt. Flavor is malts, fruit, dry notes and citrus, straw. Firmly hoppy and bitter finish. Soft carbonation, dry to oily mouthfeel. Not bad, but somehow lacks character.
