Slightly hazy yellow beer with dense white head. Aroma has malts, honey, grass and something stinging, sulphur or diacetyl. Flavor has white bread, honeyish sweetness and some harsh maltiness and carboardiness. Palate is quite thin with quite strong carbonation. Finish has quite strong bitterness with herbal hops, honeyish sweetness and minerals. Seems like a good base for a German lager but even though it was from the tap at the brewup, it felt unfresh or contaminated. Possibly unclean taps? Disappointing.

Rune (8042) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2014
300ml vom fass at the brewpub. Hazy pale yellow. Tiny layer leaving dotted spots to the glass. Mild ripe fruity aroma. Moderate flavours profile containing banana sweetness, dough, and a drop of lemon. Mostly dry ending, some bitter fruity hints. Easy going (Heidelberg 25.07.2014).

villevav (217) - FINLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Limonadimaisen vaaleankeltainen, samea, ohut vaahto. Mieto, maltainen, hieman katkera jälkimaku.

rozsoma (492) - HUNGARY - MAY 7, 2014
Monoton, aber ok. Üdítő. Világos. Szűretlen. Könnyed. Kaja mellé könnyen csúszik.

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
Tap at the brewpub. It pours hazy golden with a medium white head. The nose is fresh, doughy, grass and slightly sweetness. The taste is crisp, doughy, bitter grass, peppery, light sweetness and grain with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth, rounded and well balanced. Very drinkable. A rather nice hells.

Draught at the brewery. Clean and grainy aroma. Taste: malts and hop-bitter, a little bit buttery. Not bad

ruigo (1091) - PORTUGAL - DEC 16, 2013
50cl from tap at the Brauhaus. It has a yellow straw colour with a white head. Aroma has hay, malt and lightly yeast. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is more bitter than sweet with a dry and bitter finish. Overall, a quite watery beer but with some flavour and nice.

Vladivostok (237) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Helles colour but with just the faintest inkling of a haze. Gentle carbonation which suits me. Hop rate is quite low but it’s not a bad beer and if I were in Heidelberg again I would make a beeline for Vetter.

Purchased at Vetters in Eppingen, DE; enjoyed at my hotel room in Sinsheim, DE. Appearance is a cloudy bright gold with a thin white head. Aroma of lager yeast and a light hay, smell is pretty nice. Taste goes down rather yeasty with a nice light finish. Pretty good stuff.
