2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Secret Krampus beer #2, thanks Peter.
Pours a dark dehydrated urine yellow with tall white head that dissipates quickly. No lacing.
Aroma is mostly corn and sugar. Smells like a malt liquor.
Flavor is more malt liquor. Mostly corn and chemicals but there are also hints of banana and booze. Low bitterness, high crappiness, too sweet.
This should be available in 24oz cans, or on cask at any of these fine establishments:

Bottle. Pale pour with thin white head. Light hop grass aroma. Thin flavor, there is no adjunct in this but it tastes like extract is used. Non satisfying finish.

Clear, rich gold with a frothy white head.
Corn, sweet grain aroma.
Honey malt, soft, light....grain/bread taste.
Not spectacular, but ok.
Rather weak, though.

12 oz bottle.
Pours clear, golden with a moderate size head that has weak retention,
Fairly nice aroma of sweet and light roasted malts. Flavor is true to German style heles with no noteworthy faults or strengths.
Medium-light body; lightly crisp carbonation; slightly dry finish.

Bottle pour. Darker gold with not much head. Aroma is sweet grainy, and a touch bready. Tastes the same. Not my thing, I guess.

bottle. clear gold. rich pale malt, almost nutty, aroma. flavor is, again, rich and robust. nice, clean, grassy hersbrucker. medium bodied. the flavorful, rich, malt is balanced nicely with the clean hop addition.

I confess to not being to interested in the style to begin with, but this is not a very good version of it. Lots of grass hop of front, but mostly it’s got that classic wet cardboard taste and body.
