3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a nice white head leaving lacings. Quite grainy on the nose, but for once in a pleasant way. Caramel too, but the aroma is a bit one-dimentional. Grainy and malty flavor with some caramel and some fruityness. Low on bitterness. Medium body and a finish with grains and caramel. A nice and refreshing beer, but too grainy and one-dimentional.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled (Beerangel, BB 02/2010).
Pale copper color, good off-white head, lace. Metal, ash, clover, straw, grass and caramel in the nose - when warms up: barnyard. Crispish carbonation. Ryeish-caramelly malty, vague grassy-flowery hops. Only some metal. Bitter-harsh aftertaste. Biscuity. Unorthodox German Vienna (closer to hoppy Märzen), but not the most balanced one. Finish is also a bit thin for 5.5% German brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, bought @ METRO, Kolding.
Pours clear golden with a nice, creamy, off-white head. Fine, light lacings. Aroma is rather grainy, light hay and some sweet, unfermented malts. Light carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is light sugary, bready malts. The finish is fine and hoppy with grass, hay and a little pine. Still too sweet, though.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
bought 17oct. 2008 el corte ingles, palma, rated mar 31 2009. best before 3-jun-2009.
clear yellow, small thick white head.
hoppy, but also a bit earthy aroma.
flavor is a bit alcoholic, sweet and dark caramelly. reminds me of a grolsch i once tasted that was few months after best before date. ends sweet. i’ll have to rerate a fresh sample, as this bottleed one was not tasting good, i think it aged badly or have had too much heat at some point.
