2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass quite light, nice creamy head. Hoppy-fruity aroma. Starts strong, intense hoppy, quite sourish, also quite bitter. Fruity notes of lemon. Finish a bit unbalanced. The brewery has better beers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Alvera/Monte Mio, Salzburg. Golden, clear body, with big, frothy, white head, that leaves a lot of lacing. Not very strong aroma, with tangerine, orange and some other fruits, grass, some bready malt. Taste of tangerine, orange, citrus, grass, candy, some bready malt notes. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a good carbonation and finishes light, bitter/sweet, slightly dry, with grass and lemon zest notes. Well, another beer (I think my third or fourth one) displaying, that it is pretty hard to build a fully aromatic, complex ale based on the Mandarina Bavaria hop variety, although it still makes it fruity and refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Interesting Germanic take on a pale ale. Smell from the glass is invitingly floral and yeasty, but after sipping, the mouthfeel is a little watery without the rich taste you’d expect from the aroma. Lingers with a bitter aftertaste which whilst not unpleasant, somehow leaves you feeling a little cheated given the promise of the initial nose.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bierzwerg!
Pours clear golden orangr with flat head. Smell is very fruity-sweet, lots of orange and some grapefruit. Starts with delicious fruity hops, orange, mango and some mild grapefruit notes. Middle part is still very fruity, well-balanced sweet and tart, with massive aroma of orange. Goes into a bitter fruity finish with orange and grapefruit. Fruit bomb!!!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A big, off-white head forms over a hazy, golden body. The aroma is too much on the grainy side, with some piney, citrusy notes. A bit boring I think. The flavor has the same problem, it’s too grainy, and not enough hoppy. Medium body, quite dry, and with a pleasant carbonation. Pale malts and some fruityness and bitterness in the end. Sure decent, but nothing more. 131231

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Mit Pale Ale hatte es gar nicht mehr so viel zu tun. Leicht hopfig mit einer milchigen Textur und ausgewogener Kohlensaeure. Doch eigentlich ist die Geschichte hier dumpf und mufflig.
