3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a medium sparkling clear amber with a large white rocky head that was fully diminishing and had good lacing. The aroma was heavy with yeast, a mild herbal hop and a straw malt with a slight note of banana and clove. It tasted midly bitter yet very smooth at first and finished with a nice yeast flavor with just an ever so slight hint of banana that stayed with you only a short time. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery yet creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall a very nice refreshing brew.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared at the End of History tasting. Aroma of stale angel food, pears, and bread crust. Pours clear with nice carbonation and a quick head. Taste is cardboard, pear stems, and stale bread crust. This style is obviously supposed to be light but the lingering taste is off-putting. Not good.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear medium amber with a persistent 1" white head, lace that slides back into the drink. Aroma is good European Pilsener - malt and floral hops. Taste is malt and hops, for sure, but mostly it is carbonation. The fizz is sharp, and somewhat refreshing, but it covers everything else. This one needs better balance.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The Kristall version of Tucher Helles Hefe Weizen, so filtered and clear, with pretty golden blonde colour. Malty character with weakish apple-like esters and subtle presence of wheat. Honest and thirst-quenching, typical Kristallweizen but the filtering has deprived it a bit of its original complexity and elegance.

Bottle I took to James’ house for the End of History tasting. Pours a mostly clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet grain on the nose. Medium bodied, quite sweet, candied bananas. Grainy and sweet. Unpleasant and not tasty.
