3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy amber-brown with a large off-white head. Malty aroma: very sweet and bready, with a touch of raw grain. Light metallic notes. Caramel malt in the flavor alongside biscuity, tangy, almost rye-ish flavors. There’s a hint of smokiness that gives this one a winter-ish slant. Tasty, elegant little lager. Who cares which season it’s named after?

One of those little pony-kegs (gift to me). Got it nice and chilly. Poured with a nice head but thats where the experience stopped. The flavor was flat, nothing to say at all. Maybe hoppy beers have ruined me to enjoy anything else. I’m not sure I will even drink anymore, it may simply get tossed. I don’t have the patience to drink this thing "just because it’s there" I’d rather really enjoy my beer.

Dose 5l. Kupferfarbenes, blankes Bier, untergärig. Schöne Cappucino-Crema, sehr appetitlich. Getreidige Malztöne verbinden sich mit einer unaufdringlichen Hopfenblume. Sehr süffig, erfüllt die Erwartungen an diese großartige Brauerei.

Bottle from Bottleworks. Honey and cough syrup aroma. Pours thick, but clear with a head that lingers. Very sweet taste, and the alcohol is more pronounced than expected.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours reddish copper with a head that disappears quickly. Malty aroma is pretty mild; flavours of hay, bread and some herbs. Taste is crisp with solid clean malty flavours featuring most. Only a little herbal notes in the finish. Overall somewhat dry, light to medium bodied, slick palate. Very drinkable, clean German beer - no mistakes but no variance either.
