3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 re-rate from bottle. Green-golden, fine sparkly, white lace. Rich german aromatic hops, a hint countryside/sulphur, Medium body, chewy, sparkly, nice broad hop profile going from metallic grassy to a flowery finish. Really nice, happy I had a chance to try it again.
old rating: 5 2 6 2 10
Pale green golden colouring, low lacing head.
Bready malt aroma with hints of aromatic hops.
Lightbodied, onedimensional malty pils, some flowery hops help a bit - its nowhere near what the commercial description promisses though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Malty nose with a touch of cardboard and a very faint floral hoppiness; slightly dry bitter flavour, light bitter, not very aromatic finish. Not bad, but where are the announced "aromatic hops"..........
