On tap @Birre sotto l’albero, Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Pours golden with a decent white head. Aroma is malty, bread crust, honey, herbal notes, grass. Flavour is medium sweet with a decent bitter end. Medium to light body, light carbonation. A bit shy, I expected more.

Aroma of grassy dry hops, dry bready yeast, and grainy malt. Taste of lager yeast, stale honey grain bread, with a strong hop bitterness. Very similar to some German/ European Lagers I’ve had.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale yellow beer with an audibly fizzy white head. Lots of carbonation rising in the beer throughout. Clean, earthy nose with some bread crust notes. This is a light, easy drinking beer with bread crust and some grainy malts with an earthy, straw finish. Not too interesting and I’m sure would be better on a hot day with a pretzel.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, Wolnzach version. Cloudy, light floaties. Slightly yeasty, grassy nose, fairly restrained. Medium light body, not chewy enough. Pretty unspektacular finish. Needs more character.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Julio’s Liquors. Consumed very chilled. Hazy golden color with standard Co2 level, spotty lace around the edges of the glass. Aroma of Noble hops, grain and skunky lager yeast.
The flavor has a solid malt base with the Noble hops, skunky yeast and grassy notes. Ends on a mild sweetness. Straw hints. This is exactly as it would taste in Germany. A perfect example of the style.

Draft served in shaker glass. Dark yellow with a nice white head, pretty clear with medium body. Grassy flavor with a long bitter finish. Very interesting nuance to this, for a lager.
