2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 Bottle.
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (lemon oil/cleaner, flowers), with light notes of celery and green onion.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Yet another very inconsistent brew. Had this on draft at around 3.5-3.7 quality, and now a fresh bottle purchased at the Gasthaus that sucks. How do you even rate brewers like this that are all over the place even with the same beer? Arggh.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Traditional or awful overloaded front of the bottle? Pale beer with a nice, but disappearing head. The aroma is wonderful flowery and hoppy. It starts malty, hoppy and full-bodied. Soft carbonation and very smooth palate. Nice, soft bitterness and grassy notes. The finish is moderate dry and a bit sticky. Delicious, thirst-quenching and easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Half litre bottle, poured into over sized Tripel Karmeliet tulip. A: Golden, clear, large rocky head, decent retention, some lacing. S: Not overly pronounced but combined slight Saaz hop with a small hint of grass. At times it was reminiscent of a Fernsehpils. T: The hop bitterness was balanced out by some orangey malty sweetness,
bready finish. M: Minimal to moderate amount of carbonation, slightly heavy body. O: An easy drinker, fairly subtle, wouldn’t get rave reviews from a hard core hop head but perfectly acceptable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl fliptop, Fristo, bb01/2015. Straw golden with stable eggwhite froth. Distinct strawy cereals in the nose lay down characteristic, fragrant pale malts in taste and palate for near-metallic herbaceous hops to perch on. Slightly sour mash edge, hedgerow-herbal, with some wet bark, straw astringent. Good stuff, I imagine this is even more convincing on tap.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle, poured into Weizen glass.
Head is large and foamy but dissipates quickly and leaves only some scattered lace.
Aroma is dominated by malt. Taste is also malty at first, a bit fruity in the middle and the hops hits you last. Leaves a pleasant, slightly bitter aftertaste.
Body feels light to medium. Carbonation is medium.
Average beer. Not bad but neither impressive.
