5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The best beer I have tasted, and I’ve sampled many over the years. The taste and particularly the aroma, are simply sublime.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from Liquor Barn (Springhurst); split four ways. Aroma: Semi-dry cereal with an abiding grassiness that reminds me of German Pilsners; very clean and inviting. Appearance: Yellow pour with light streams of carbonation supporting a patchy white head. Flavor: Assertively grassy up front; malts more subtle and leave a whisper of sweetness, leading to a dry, grassy finish. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, very soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: It’s a superbly done Helles; probably the best German example I’ve found stateside, especially from a bottle.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2010 Draught, The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Pale lacy flute wafting with fresh herbal hop, honey, hay and chick pea. Lemony, grassy hop melding into honey and crackerbread malt. Immaculate.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle sample @"Alles IPA? - Craft anders" ProBierclub Seminar, Braukunst Live München 2014, FR. This beer is all about the taste and learning about the textures of layered malts created by a work-intense old gristing procedure does pay off when sampling. Delicate sandcake pale malts, spelt, hay all add to a strange thick texture for a Helles/Export made palatable by its slight wood astringency. Otherwise mildly hopped like any other Export, but the texture and mouthfeel are astounding, if not thirst-quenching.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Birra cruda, cioè non pastorizzata e quindi da consumare in breve tempo, prodotta dall’ottima Riegele. Si tratta di una Dortmunder bionda e con una importante schiuma, di cui spicca molto il malto. L’amaro è presente ma accompagna solo, rendendo la birra più fresca e beverina. Ben riuscita.
