3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at 1020. Deep golden color with a fine head. Malty nose, bread, oranges, light hop but it comes thru nicely. Bready, malty flavor, rich and thick, smooth, with low bitterness but nice citrus accent from the hops. Nicely enough done, a bit plain but good malt character. Very fruity. Needs more bitterness to shine.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This one’s a bit of a dud, though perhaps it’s just that I’m not much of a fan of the helles style. A tad overcarbonated and metallic. Weird aftertaste.

Hints of grape? Hmm. Not bad. A little too carbonated for my taste. Pleasant though.
