3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear pale golden with a thick, frothy, long-lasting white head. Aroma has a nice wheaty sweetness and a touch of clove and peppery yeast. Starts with a light caramely sweetness and a well balanced peppery, yeasty spice. A really fresh, enjoyable, flavorful beer that doesn’t really seem to have suffered by being filtered.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks like a pilsner though without much head. Lighty sweet aroma of banana, yeast, some spiciness, maybe a little pineapple. Very crisp and spritzy on the palate with a fast finish. Flavors of the aromas with some maltiness and a hint of caramel. A bit on the watery side. A few solvent like notes. Over all quite refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Detected spicey and sweet aromas. Gold clear body with big head that soon became no head. Sweet flavor with a little spice to make the beer heavy on the palate, which was good. Good beer with out the spice flavor this may of been just another swill beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
When compared to the hefe this misses out somewhat. Perhaps the whole cloudy but fine nature of that beer is what we expect compared to the kristal . The same diacetyl is there with a hint of bubblegum but the mouthfeel and flavour are all a bit too offputting. too much fizz and afterburn to be an enjoyable beer. A shame as it comes from a very good stable of beers.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fizzy head, dies quick. Very pale dark yellow, clear color. The aroma is amazing- creamy, bannana and cloves, with balanced bubblegum sweetness. Taste comes off very ciderlike, with lots of apples. Sweet. Finish is quite lacking in that it doesn’t really exist. Also quite watery. What a great aroma though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer has a beautiful creamy white head with steadily ascending tiny bubbles. The whole activity is quite nice. Unfortunately the color is Budweiser yellow, kind of ruining the effect. It has a pronounced banana flavor and a crisp clean palate. It’s a fine German beer made to the original 1516 purity laws.
