3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nothing special with the pour, and almost no head from the bottle. Aroma is light and a touch hoppy. Really light pale hop flavor with a nice touch of malt. Not very bitter at all either. Decent.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
translucent golden straw with a dense white head. creamy medium body with medium carbonation.
aroma: pale malt (has the graininess of basic u.s. 2-row and the doughiness of pilsner malt), noble-hop bitterness, and salty german-like minerality. very clean yeast character.
taste: clean pale malt, doughy saltiness that is very german-tasting to me, clean noble-hop bitterness, and no notable yeast esters or phenols.
really not what i was expecting, but very good. in a blind tasting, i would think this is a german helles brewed in a town with softer water like weltenberg.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Deeply golden, average white head. Sweet and biscuity, with a peachy fruit character and a medium bitter finish that dries things out. Not bad, not great either. I’m not sure how I feel about this beer. I think I was let down a little. I don’t know. It’s late.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Solid beer. Poured a clear effervescent dark yellow. Aroma is light citrus, crackers. Super mellow, super low key. I imagine drinking this in the days when America was more of a beer desert would have been like sipping ambrosia from the gods, but as it stands now, the beer is a nice reminder of how far the beer scene has come.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an almost clear golden straw color with one finger head that leaves small to moderate lacing. Aroma initially of toasted malt, followed by a very surprising mild hoppy grapefruit presence. This is fantastic. Medium body with mild/moderate carbonation that is not to strong with creamy mouthfeel. Long mildly bitter finish. This is a fine ale.
