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...

picked up in the fridge at zly casy. glad to try this annafest having missed out on forchheim again this summer. golden with an unenthusiastic head; vibrant aroma, though, of golden syrup tin and how i imagine the kellerwald; some rusty hop character with hints of breakfast tea. probably a good beer for drinking litre steins of

Malty taste with notes of toast, bread, a touch of dried fruit, apricots and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain malt sweetness. Well balanced and tasty. Quite nice.

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!

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.
