3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Consumed at a bar called Mississippi in Bochum, Germany. Nice pour, decent fluffy white head. Lots of grain, crisp bouquet, and some malts on the nose. Taste is citrus with lots of bitter grains, some burnt aspects, and a fare amount of floral and earth tones. Really decent brew and well good for the start of a LOOONG night! :)

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow pour with a rocky white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Pretty bland aroma. Hay, chalk, very mild herbal and floral hops. Flavor is a step up. The hops come through a bit more. More herbal than floral. Honey like sweetness. Nice clean bitter finish that lingers. Has some nice qualities, but they don’t seem to come together as well as in the best examples of the style.
