4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This brings me back. This is the quintessential Bavarian Lager. Living in Europe for how long and getting so bored with most German beers, this one stands out as really bringing the Quality back.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautifully balanced Munich Hell from a biodynamic farm-brewery near Munich. Yeasty (only lightly filtered), creamy in texture, and sumptuous. Deep golden colour. Not much bitterness, accent is on the sharp yeastiness vs. the full maltiness. It was so good I had to buy the matching glass with the pig with pearls on it.

Spicy citrussy hop nose with slight wort background.
Pale and cloudy, unfiltered.
Yeasty notes, grassy bitter finish together with a
fizzy pearling mouthfeel, yet full body.
Refreshing and tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Grainy malt character, with smooth grassy butter in the mouth. The hops give it a balanced bitter-lemon cleanliness that lasts through to the end. Finish is refreshing and slightly vanilla, leading to a long hoppy, malty but clean aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I enjoyed this brew. It’s taste has a subtle smokey flavor that is not dominant, but it is evident. There is a slight flavor of bacon, which I guess is why there is a pig on the label! The palate is very smotth and the there is very little obtrusive aftertaste. The appearance is the one issue of this beer that I believe limits its overall score. It is a cloudy brew with no head or lacing. These are big negatives in my rating. Other than that the beer is refreshing, smooth and flavorful.
