3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
delicious strong aroma, dark fruits , citrups, hops. clear dark yellow with large lasting off-white head. Flavor : fantastic. ipa style , but somewhat underplayed and thus extremely drinkable. well balanced, i can’t figure what it tastes like, but it is very very good. both appearance and palate is like 3.49 or so, but i’ll add one in overall to compensate. If You like non-extreme IPA style beers with a clear micro/quality taste, this one is fantastic.

Sweet malty aroma, some ginger, some wet sheep. Lively palate, not fizzy as such. Quite full flavoured. Strongly hoppy and pretty malty too, quite well balanced, nutty in places. Long malty and nutty finish.

Golden with a nice head and a nice hoppy aroma. The flavour is full and smooth with lots of aroma hops, caramel, light sweetness. It’s really nice, and I think it’s more an APA than a märzen.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Clear amber lager with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Malty, toasted caramel nose and flavor. Balanced nicely. Rich, hearty malts, but not cloyingly sweet. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with fizzy carbonation. Roasty, rather bitter finish. Cheers to marsiblursi for providing the bottle!
