No real colour, pours to a white head that falls off to nothing in a second flat. No lacing. Low malt notes if any. Bitter but not from hops almost artificial flavour. This beer is bloating and needs to be chilled to near zero to reduce to high carbonation. I am not sure why this one gets accolades as it is just another pale lager brewed from heavy use of corn sugar or similar adjunct. .

anstei (1176) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of Summer Santa Benzai. Sugary grainy sweet with almost no hops or bitterness. Surprisingly not horrible. But really not much more than a country tick either.

bartlebier (3408) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2016
33cl stubbi, forget the source. The sweet yet dry corniness prevails, sulphurs and metallics remain manageable. Less offish than a few European competitors in the same league. Exotic amnesiac.

320ml bottle, shared with blackhaddock in his man cave. Many thanks to Erzengel for this! Pours a misty gold, thin white head. Aroma is grains, pale malt. Taste continues with a musty grainy character. Lightly sweet. Rather bland.
