3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very clear pale golden with a medium white head. Lightly herbal, grassy nose with a touch of sweet wort. Flavor has notes of grain, grass, hay, bread, caramel and noble hops. Pleasantly sweet and malty. Has a definitive, ample (yet smooth) hop presence which balances out the flavor quite nicely. Ends with the slightest twinge of alcohol. Medium bodied with a very smooth and creamy texture and medium carbonation. No lacing but good head retention. I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium gold, nice head. Lightly bready aroma, bit of floral hop, sweet. Flavor matched. A bock, but kind of venturing into European Strong Lager in terms of its characteristics. Not bad, just not much to it.
