3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
.33l pour from chilled tap into a shaker pint at Brickermaker’s in Vienna. Hazy and orange with a fluffy white head. Great creamy medium body with a little rye nibble on the end. Citrus and light malt on the nose. Taste is a bit muted. Citrus up front with orange sweetness in the middle and a faint rye aftertaste. Tastes like a decent pale ale made for a hot day in the sun. Not as much spiciness as I’d like in a rye beer. Pleasant and drinkable, but nothing amazing.

Nice on the nose and eye, but unfortunately just not too complex when it comes to the mouth....and a bit heavy on the carbonation. It would be nice on a hot day as there is basically no after-taste.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle as part of the "Culturbrauer Craft Bier Box".
Dark amber, brownish, hazy body, with a medium, fastly dissipating, off-white head.
Typical rye aroma, with bread, bubblegum, banana, spices, ripe fruits.
Taste is quite light, with bread, bubblegum, ripe fruits, banana, spices, some vanilla.
Quite light, slightly oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes sweet, bready, malty, spicy, slightly bitter hoppy.
Good, quaffable beer. The nose is nice, quite inviting, the taste is too light though. Drinks very easy. Nice example of a Roggenbier, but nothing special.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Hazy amber color, small to medium sized white head. Appearance was promising, unlike aroma which was completely empty, except extremely small, barely noticeable amount of caramel. Taste is even worse. Big vegetable kick. It says "slightly fruity", I wonder since when is cabbage considered to be fruit? If I didn’t know, I’d say this one has ABV around 1% or close to that. Disgustingly hideous.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled on draught at the Roebuck in Borough, near London Bridge. Hazy dark brown colour with a thin whitish head. Slight aroma of rye bread. The taste is a little dull, almost sour. The main characteristic is, unsurprisingly, rye, similar to the flavour of dark brown rye bread. There is also a slightly grassy hop flavour. The finish is dominated by slightly sour rye notes with a hint of caraway seed. This is not a very appealing beer - rather thin and sour with little complexity. Interesting to try it, and it may have an appeal to some beer drinkers looking for something different.
