Poured from a bottle into a footed pilsner glass. Appearance is semi hazy gold/yellow with a thick white head of foam that dissipates at a fairly moderate rate. Little or no lacing left behind. Aroma is sweet and grainy, reminiscent of a kolsch. I detect a bit of orange in here as well. Taste is somewhat briny and orangy, with a slightly sweet overall presence. Grainy notes come through in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium in density with a spritzy presence on the tongue.

VinegarStroke (338) - Napa, California, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle: Light straw with some subtle haze. Pours with a medium head that dissipates quickly. No lace. Clean pale malt aromas. Very simple and clean. No complexity from the fermentation or hops. There is a subtle apricot aroma. Very dry, not sour and moderately low bitterness. There’s a roundness to the mouthfeel. High CO2 gives a freshness and acidity. Clean and refreshing.

rjplumer (640) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - APR 23, 2015
Sweet malt bready aroma. Dark milky burned orange body. No head aside from a few stray bubbles. Sweet tangerine-like sweetness. Mild bitterness. Some maltiness in the background. Seems like a radler. Kind of disappointed by this one.

ogivlado (6246) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 14, 2015
Bottled 500ml. -from Rudat Dortmund. I’ve spent last few years chasing for Pinkus Müller beers and now when I finally found them all three are just average (Original, Hefe Weizen and Pils). Pitty. Yellow coloured, medium sized white head, dusty and weak malty nose. Sweet malty, slight caramel, mild fruity and hoppy with short finish.

Visiting Münster so had to check out the local classic. We got to the hotel, dropped our stuff, and walked straight to the brewpub. Pretty quiet Saturday afternoon in March, cold and rainy outside, perfect for a German feast accompanied by great beer. Started out with the classic alt. Loved it. Somewhere between a Dusseldorf alt and Kolsch, and with that characteristic tanginess. Really nice beer - super easy-drinking and unique.

DSG (8324) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/19/15] Bottle at the hotel in San Diego. Clear golden. Yeasty aroma with grape jam and lots of cardboard oxidation. Sweet flavor, fruity, yeasty, with lots of cardboard. Rather light-bodied. No freshness date, but it seems way too old.

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a white head. Aroma is bready malt with a slightly citrusy hop character. Taste is bready malt with a little sweetness and slightly tart yeastyness. Good beer.

shared with Konfuzzi @ bottling of the Iden; bready malts and a hint of citrus in the nose, taste starts with caramel, ends with citrus; refreshing, light, well-balanced.
