2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draugh ("Weihenstephaner Festbier")
It’s an oktoberfest/märzen. Golden color, creamy white head. Sweet malty and yeasty nose. Medium-bodied. Malty in the finish, some fruity hops with trefoil and grass. Clean but not very interesting.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 5.8% at KØ07. Bready aroma. Pale yellow colour, very small white head. The flavour is quite thin, some bread. Disappointing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Süßlich getreidiger Antrunk, geringe Herbe. Weich, sehr sehr süffig. Die helle Malzigkeit steigt, damit verbunden auch die Würzigkeit. Vollmundig, süß, süffig – alles in richtigem Verhältnis zueinander. Gut! 12/12/14/12//12

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a slightly cloudy, yellow pour with a short lived white head.
S: The nose is bready and biscuity with a slight spiciness and some lightly floral and citrusy hops.
T: There’s plenty of spicy and sweet orange hop flavor. The malt provides a bit of bready flavor and substance, though the beer is fairly light.
M: The body is quite light on the tongue with a bubbly carbonation.
D: I don’t think Weihenstephaner makes a bad beer, and this one follows that trend. A nice light beer with some pleasant flavor.

Combines the two styles brilliantly, with the aromatic maltiness playing off of the toasty notes.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma of light citrus and bread. Slightly hazy gold color with a white head that ringed and laced. More of a fruit aroma as the glass approaches the lips. Thin to medium bodied with very mild, nigh creamy, carbonation. It’s lightly sweet, a bit fruity, and there’s a very little bitter that builds over time. The finish is more dry than sweet, it’s got some light fruit, and a bit of bitter. Floral hop? Not your typical lager. Very tasty indeed.
