2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a note of DMS.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Plain and simple. Not as bad as the Hell I had 5 years ago in Munich, though. A gift from the Knoblach brewer’s son (who brews at Tergensee).
