2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The beer is golden yellow in and crystal clear, with a high fine head. It smells malty, spicy, slightly sour and bitter hoppy. Starts moderately hoppy, dominant malty, subtly sweet in the background, with some grains. The middle part is malty-sweet, slight sugary, with a subtle hoppy note in the background. Goes into a musty-malty finish with some sugary-sweet notes!

Moderat hopfiger Geruch, andeutungsweise zitronig. Startet etwas brotig. Mitte angenehmer, verhalten aromatisch und fruchtig. Abgang mehr ins Würzige gehend, wenig bitter. Halbwegs in Ordnung.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle by 07.11.12. Pale clear-golden body with a soapy white head, very faint malty nose. Taste is sweetly malty, but light, a little cleaner than their Helles but also thinner and plainer. Just a hint of florality and bread toward the end in with some booze showing.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle looks a little bit like a cheap beer. Beer in the glass better, zippy, nice head. Starts spicy-malty, a bit moldy and metallically. Finish milder, modest dry and grasy. Could be more intense and spicy, but okay.
