2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled (Citymarket Sello, BB 10/2009).
Golden color, small white head. Buttery grassy and a bit dusty aroma. Touch of metal when warms up. Quite grassy flavor with sweet maltyness - much sweeter than Franconian helles-beers normally. Some apple fruityness too. Aftertaste has bitterness. Not exceptional, but ok German 4.6% only beer.
