3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Victory. Light copper pour, sparkling, thick head retention. Nose is nicely complex: floral, biscuity, fresh, muted white grapefruit. Mostly biscuity pils malt. Taste is spot on- rich and quenching with silkiness and softness not seen in the style hardly ever. Amazing palate. Grassy, silky, bitter. Wow. Mild alcohol presence. Killer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on draft at D’s in Monroeville this beer poured a dark amber color with a huge fluffy orange-white head that lingered forever and left ok lacing. The aroma was faintly sweet and tangy with faint fruity hops. The flavor was nutty caramel, honey, bread, tangy malts and mixed fruity hops. Medium length finish of caramel, bread and hops. Medium body. Pleasant though subdued.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at pub, tried against the Bavarian Spalt, Bavarian Polaris, and Headwaters Pale Ale. Lightest of the three, most effervescent and appealing with lingering head. A lot of leafy earth qualities, lightly floral with considerable citrus and hay, a bit of vitamin C issues. More hoppy, less dry than the Spalt, but not nearly the balance or complexity, though still quite nice, light, and well-attenuated.
1) Bavarian Spalt
2) Headwaters Pale
3) Bavarian Mandarina
4) Bavarian Polaris
