2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle, Hallertau samplera from biershop-bayern. - pours watery like a soiled Helles, sewer water. Pretty aromaless on the nose. Taste is surprisingly aromatic, some roast, spicy hops, considering the watery palate. Nice dry mouthfeel, good dark lager, if you need dark lager to quench your thirst so you can sample something really tasty afterward.
