eunck (83) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2016
Hazy light yellow beer with fine white head. Very yeasty aroma. The hops are also very aromatic. Citrus fruits, especially lemon, which works together with a distinctly sour taste. Then a sweet component comes out from underneath and finally a low bitterness. The palate is ok, can’t say it’s watery. Altogether this beer is interesting and has quite a lot of flavour for the style. It seems to me more like a Zwickl.

DrNosha (1028) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2015
0,5l Flasche. Dezentes frisches Aroma nach Getreide. Helles Gelb mit sehr viel schönem hellem Schaum, der aber recht schnell zerfällt. Malzig im Geschmack mit zarten Citrus Spitzen. Sehr vollmundiges Bier. Langer malzig bitterer Abgabg. Gefällt mir!

A bit yeasty. Sweet malts, earthy hops, silky mouthfeel, quite the bitter finish. Well-balanced, quite nice.

Maker: Giesinger Bräu, Munich, Germany *** Beer: Untergiesinger Erhellung (Bottled, unfiltered, 330ml) *** Style: Dortmunder Helles *** ALC.VOL.: 5.3% *** Colour: Hazy bright yellow, big fluffy white head. *** Nose: Soap, some grain. Nothing else. *** Texture: Medium body, mild carbonation. A bit thin.*** Taste: Mild citrus, but mostly grain. Not much in terms of bitterness (from start to finish). A bit soapy towards the middle. Bitterness increases a bit in the aftertaste, but not much depth of flavor there either. *** Impressions: Weak, bready/soapy beer with not much to recommend it beyond its pretty appearance and the flamboyant name. Not recommended.

Flasche, 0.3l Strohgelb, trübe, dichter, fester, kräftiger Schaum. Mineralischer Duft, ganz leicht malzig. Dünner Körper, leichte Malzsüße, leicht säuerlich, sehr prickelnd auf der Zunge. Viel CO2. Bitterkeit hält sich dezent zurück.
