3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle served in a chalice.
A: Pours a dark hazy amber to beige color forming a medium creamy dense beige head. Good retention and some lacings formed and left in the glass
S: Extremely grainy in the nose, expected from a six malt beer. Strong notes of barley, oatmeal, wheat, caramel and roasted malts. Also notes of flowery, earthy and citrus hops
T: As the nose, extremely grainy. Sweet upfront. Notes of caramel malts, oatmeal, wheat and roasted malts. Hops are earthy and citrus. Cascade-like. However, bitterness is light as expected from a German beer. Yeasts are very biscuity and bready. Lager style
M: Very creamy and heavy body. Most probably due to the oatmeal and wheat in the formula. Medium carbonation. Bready and grainy aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Different from any other beer I’ve had. Interesting

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Nurnberger Alm, Dec. 2012: Orange chestnut with some haze. Fragmented dirty-white foam. Simple toasty, airy, and earthy nose with hints of brown sugar and red apple peels. Soft and fuzzy carbonation. Dry and earthy with pecan skin malt and fallen leaves. Grains offer up some firm hazelnut and browned biscuit accents, though a soggy bread note akin to Communion wafer negates much of the body’s structure. Finishes with a red apple note which magnifies the increasingly limp malt. Very basic and kind of aimless. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3):
Lots of malts & some bread with some sweetness. It’s not particularly strong on the nose, there is some bitterness and wheat with the beer almost hinting at being a hefeweizen with some background fruits & grain.
Dark, cloudy amber with a fingers-width tall, foamy to creamy white head that holds pretty good over the opening minutes before eventually having in size.
Wheat & banana kick things off with the beer again seeming like a hefeweizen but the grains & strong malts soon take over with touches of sweetness. Caramel & further grains start to come through & although the beer wasn’t the greatest to begin with, almost seeming bland, it did pick up around the middle with some spice featuring as well.
Lots of grain & sweetness on top of a light-medium body & medium carbonation. There is some spice & a dry finish that is followed by quite a bitter aftertaste.
Fairly average in truth, it starts with some wheat & spice with background fruits but it still seems to come across as quite a bland one before improving some around the middle. Definitely drinkable but it wasn’t overly enjoyable & won’t be one I’ll pick up again.

Bottle. Amber color. Cereal aroma and flavor. Thinnish. Hint of pear. Just a little bit of grainy sweetness. Nice and easy drinking beer without much depth.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Milchiges Bernstein, schwache Schaumbildung. Säuerlich-milchiges-Getreidearoma. Auch im Geschmack irgendwo zwischen Roggenbrot und säuerlicher Buttermilch. Gefällt mir gar nicht!
