3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (330ml): Pale golden, slowly collapsing white head; sweet pale malt and hayish, floral, a bit grassy hops; more dry than sweet bitter-malty flavour, light bodied, soft MF; becomes even drier towards the grassy bitter end. Better overture than an average german Pils, but later only the average german stuff.....

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(33cl bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a thick foamy white head of moderate duration. Hop-accented aroma, herbal and minimal grassy, backed with light-sweet grainy malt. Bitter flavour, herbal hoppy taste on a soft, slightly grainy malty base, light bodied, medium carbonation; dry and moderately bitter hoppy finish. Nothing special but pretty drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
[At the Schaumburger brewery tap] A dark yellow beer with a lazing fluffy white head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of straw and grain. The flavor is sweet malty with quite a lot of straw and hay, leading to a dry and very bitter and refreshing end. Only drawback is that the body is a bit thin. Served in its own special glass.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale yellow beer, clear; with yellowish head. Dry grassy-hayish notes in the nose, aroma of chestnut flour. Less dry taste, more sweet and herbal. Blossomy, etc. Very light, velvety texture, falls flat afterwards. OK Pils. But whatever it is, it is NOT "Herb" in the German meaning, unless in the nose.
