2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
tap, rated 2014-09-10 @ the brewpub in Heidelberg
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.

Limonadimaisen vaaleankeltainen, samea, ohut vaahto. Mieto, maltainen, hieman katkera jälkimaku.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Monoton, aber ok. Üdítő. Világos. Szűretlen. Könnyed. Kaja mellé könnyen csúszik.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
