Ceramic mug. Big medicinal hop aroma. Herbal, hoppy character (it is St. Georgen after all) with light malt backdrop. Dry, hoppy finish. Slight malt toastiness adds a "fest" accent.

Draft @ Annafest. Iin krug, has a head that lasts through a whole mass! Hoppy aroma is minerals, chlorophyll, stones, earth. Smooth quaffable session beer. Yummy hop juice, very similar in character to their kellerbier.

The bottle looks simple, but good. The beer in the glass also. Starts spicy and sweet, turns then strong, a bit woody, oily, still very spicy. Round finish - good beer!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark gold beer; collapsing medium off-white head. Grass, malt with also some darker coloured malts, malt-syrup-like. Very nice, hoppy taste, near American hops: slightly citrussy, or vineleaf flavours. Upon a good malty base, but I seem to get some rice-like flavour. Can’t be no (joke!)? Alcohol somewhere retronasal. Certain grist slickness, nice medium body, light alcoholwarming. I love this hoppiness - remarkably close to some American hops, terribly difficult with German ones. It’s even better on draught, I know...

Tap. Golden with no head. Weak aroma. Taste is malty with mild hoppiness. Kinda boring.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: deep golden coloured, thin lacing head; honey and "english" hops in the nose; strong sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; finish starts sweet-malty, becomes very quickly dry and enormous hoppy and resinous towards the end. A devilishly moreish and tasty beer. Top quality by St. Georgen, as usual...........
