Bottle from the Whidbey Beer Works. Pours amber with a foamy white head. Strong malty aroma, but mellow and caramel. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Lightly caramel with a good dose of hop bitter for flavor. The level of bitter makes it a very tasty beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s a fairly solid lager, just on the edge of being metallic & thin but just about avoiding this to end up with a pleasant lager. The finish pulls it round, a nice slightly biscuity weighty flavour that transforms this from disappointing to, an acceptable little lager

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Coppery gold to clear orange in color. Medium - sized, pillowy, fluffy white head on it.
Aroma: Pure, grainy malts, yeasty sourness, some papery notes. Not enough toasty, almost reminescent of a pale lager.
Flavor: Freshly mown hay, brown sugar, and toffee-like sweetness of sugary malts. Intense, acidic character of the yeast at the middle. Soft, grassy hop balanced with some toasted malty sweetness at the finish.
Mouthfeel/Palate: Light bodied, easy beer. Thin, watery texture with soft carbonation.
Overall Impression: Sweet grainy beer with definite sour yeasty character. The cardboardy off-flavor presence is out of my toleration level. This one is the less impressive from Weltenburg to me, so far.
