3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Momar42 for this German curiosity! 500ml bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A: Pours a very pale straw color featuring excellent carbonation. The head is a two finger whIte color. It fades at a moderate clip, and leaves nice patches of lacing going down.
S: It’s a typical aroma for the style - lots of grassy hops, unobtrusive malts, and some diacetyl. I’d say the latter is a bit more prevalent than I’d like, but a fairly good aroma otherwise.
T: At first, the buttery diacetyl presence (just like in the aroma) comes fairly strongly. Luckily, it smooths out into nicely crisp, hoppy bite on the finish. Some slight fruitiness will try to build up, as well. Not ultra interesting, but about what I expect from the style.
M: Light and crisp to be sure - but sadly the finish and aftertaste isn’t as dry as I’d like here. For that reason, it lacks great drinkability. It’s got good carbonation, at least.
O: Not bad. I’d say this one is a notch or two below the best of the style, though. Worth a try.

A truly fantastic Bavarian beer. One of the best southern Germany has to offer.

In 0.5l bottle. Very clear beer. Nothing special. A normal hell beer. Quite boring in my opinion.

0.5l bottle. Clear pale golden body, white head. Aroma of bread and some cheese. Taste of bread, sweet grains and maybe some floral hops in the finish. It’s OK, but nothing extra.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Out of a bottle brought to CA from Germany by a colleague. Nice, sweet grain aroma with a spicy underbelly. Pours a clear yellow with a full white head that lingers as a full collar of small bubbles and a dusting across the top. Flavor is mellow, rich malt that fills the mouth. Some slight hop spiciness throughout the taste.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle at Probus Wines. Pours incredibly light yellow - looks really thin. Aroma doesn't give much away other than some sweet dough and a bit of herby/vegetal hop spice. Taste is pretty clean: bread and sweet cake mixture malt - only a touch of herb which is hard to detect. Crisp finish with a bit of metallic tang. Watery mouthfeel. Very brief aftertaste. So light and easy going. Not much to it, but at a cold temperature on a warm day this could do the trick.

Enligt stilbeskrivningen en öl man kan dricka i större kvantitet. Kan jag hålla med om. Tog slut snabbt. Ren och fin.
