3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From tap @ Ølfestival København 2012. This one pours a clear golden body with a small sidesticking just off-white head. Light malty, kinda metallic on the aroma with some faint citrus and grape. The taste is kinda crisp with lots of grapy citrus. It’s soft to average carbonated and has a thin oily texture. Quite refreshing flavors. Light hoppy and sweet-fruity with some alcohol in the warming finish. A bit straight forward, but as a quencher, quite good! 10.05.2012

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasting from October 2011.
Chilled and into a straightwall. A very sunny amber gold it produces, bright as bright, and highly effervescent. Snow-white, loose head of foam crowns it; sudsy and fading. Buttery, doughy nose, slightly candyish like Starburst™ fruit lollies. Some pale caramel and biscuity malt comes through as does a little ethanol spice. Quite sweet on the tip of the tongue, a good malt profile, some grit an husk showing. Candyish fruit of the aroma is lost on the palate, a positive I suppose. Firm body, not too big or cloying, light in carbonation. Very clean throughout; a rough dusty malt swallow dries it out. Finish is short, earthy, sandy, and well spiced. Low to no hop bitterness. Easy to drink as a Helles Bock should be but lacking in depth. Another along the lines of a strong Euro lager. Criticisms aside it is remarkably quaffable.
