3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Monks Porterhouse, Stockholm. Malty brew, aromatic hops, but I don’t really know what to make of this. I know Weienstephan is a brewing college, maybe this is the master brew for someone getting his diploma? Over-ripe oranges, mango, too low in bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy dark amber with a fading head.
Plenty of malt in the aroma, big caramel and golden syrup overtones. Also some spicy and floral notes.
Flavours include some of the aforementioned malt and more floral and spicy notes. There’s also a faint metallic note unfortunately.
Carbonation could be a bit higher.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at MacKinlay’s Inn, Stockholm) Orange amber colour with dense, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of toasty grain, caramel, toffee and orange. Malty, fruity taste with toast, orange, apricots, treacle toffee and a mild citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Quite malty for a pale ale, which seems quite reasonable for a German Pale Ale. Quite nice.
