2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is bananas and root beer. Pours brown/yellow like an arnold palmer with a nice hazy thick body and a big white head. Taste follows the nose with root beer and banana with light wheat and clove notes. Very cheap tasting interpretation of this style. Not a huge fan.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a nice, hazy, dark copper. Thin head doesnít immediately remind me of a German beer. Smells great though. Banana, clove, citrus and wheat that is also present in the taste, however there is an astringency on the finish that is off putting. Sweet malts dominate. Itís decent, but not one Iíd revisit.

Bottle into tulip glass, dirty orangy brown color with fluffy tan head. Aroma of wheat, caramel, banana, clove and citrus notes. Taste adds notes of fruity malt, bread, grainy, brown sugar and mild spices. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy, dry with crisp light bitter finish. Nice hefty lager for the cooling months.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle that is probably out of date but given to me kindly by Toby. Cloudy dark brown colour. Lasting beige head. Oxidised aroma. Some sweet malts, not a huge amount of German flavour on this. Esters are minimal. Sweet malt and oxidisation.
