Ernest (7241) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2013
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.

SinH4 (2407) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 27, 2016
Bottle. Pale golden color with creamy white head. Aroma is sweet pale malts, butter, slightly earthy noble hops. Taste is butter, earthy, bubblegum, sweet round pale malt body. Light-bodied. Convincing if you like the Franconian butteryness. I do like it more here than in Pale Ales. EDIT: I like it more and more with every sip. Off-topic: I am baffled: My favourite Single Malt is Caol Ila - it’s buttery. I also like buttery Landbier and Czech Pils. But why don’t I like buttery Pale Ales? Maybe the aggressive modern fruitiness doesn’t work out with butteryness.

biir (696) - Berlin, - APR 14, 2016
Flasche - als "Handgranate" - Voller Körper, mit Geschmack nach dunklen Malzen, Aromen von Trockenblumen und feuchter Pappe. Irgendwie muffig. Mir zu schwer für ein Helles.

djoeye (3194) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2015
"Die Weltweit Einzige Handgranate PLOP!" Look; off white n clear yellow-golden body. Aroma; pale malts, grainy dough, citrus note, grass. Taste; hops, grains, pale malts, bread - leading to a bready finish, grains and dry hops. Normal texture and carbonation. Funny design, ridiculously boring taste.
