3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Golden colour, slightly hazy, with rocky white head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, fruity nose with bready malt, honey, tropical fruit, canned peaches and fresh floral hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of tropical fruit, bread, honey, grass and fresh floral hops in a finish with a fairly short and quite balanced bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Feels more like a perfumy premium lager than a kellerbier, but it’s quite enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 330ml bottle into a German 0.3l handled glass (drank Feb ’12).
Pours a crystal clear blonde/light amber in colour with a big big frothy white head.
A lot of aroma to this beer! I got mushy peas, wasabi/mustard, hops and malt roughly in that order. Most unusual smells!
Flavour wise, grassy hops, a little citrus and some nutty/wood tones to it. A crisp bitter-dry aftertaste.
Medium in body and moderate to low in carbonation.
On OK take on a Zwickel but perhaps trying a bit too hard to be ’whacky’ and different when there isn’t a need to! The smell was something way out! Nothing like (nor as good) as the many kellerbiers I’ve drank in Deutschland!
