2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hell herber, ziemlich milder Antrunk. Kaum würzig, schnell deutlich milder werdend. Die milde, etwas trockene Herbe bleibt das stärkste Aroma. Belanglos. 7/6/7/6/6/6

Half liter bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a hazy golden color with a thin fizzy white head. Fair head retention.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml returnable bottle. 08.09.2012. Technically it is a Riedenburger beer.
It pours a clear golden with a semi fizzy/foamy white head.
The smell is pretty fragrant. It isn’t always that you get imports to smell this much. It has a lot of grassy noble hops, some honeylike malt, and more grain, bready malt. Pretty standard.
This is a typical Riedenburger beer in the flavor. Slight tartness, grainy, a lot of undefinable sweetness. Carbonation is nice. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the Spezial form Riedenburger just repackaged.
Overall just a really standard helles.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home. Just showed up in Colorado and looks pretty interesting. Here goes... Pours a hazy, golden yellow appearance with a big white head. Pretty tame, lightly grassy/floral hoppy, light pils/pale malty aroma. Light, crisp, a touch grainy, pils/pale malty, straw flavor. Pretty boring but I can’t find any faults in it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bügelverschlußflasche (courtesy of joss!): Hazy, lots of floaties visible, rather stable small white head, moderate honeyish-malty nose with a light hoppy background; light to moderate sweetish-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, quite soft; short and light bitter-sweet finish. O.K., but a bit lame.....
