4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle, picked up at landbierparadies in nuremberg. i must have got a really fresh bottle of this harvest seasonal beer, because i had a much better impression of it than other raters. anyways, the first highlight was an immaculate golden colour reminiscent of stained glass and chandeliers, emphasised by the head being rather modest. the aroma screamed of fresh green hallertau; i would be surprised if there was no addition of wet hops, however it s hard to say as german beer labels tend to refrain from making any boasts as to the quality of the beer or any special technical aspects. the green hop character lingered past some light caramel sweetness and through till the aftertaste which was long and prickly

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Recht getreidiger Antrunk mit süßen und trockenen Noten. Die Würzigkeit basiert auf dem hellen Malz, die Hopfigkeit ist vorhanden, spielt aber in weiten Teilen nur eine Nebenrolle. Erst zum Ende ist er wenig präsent vorhanden. Trinkbares Bier ohne Besonderheiten. 9/8/9/9//8
