It’s the perfect beer for Spring. Prost!

pivnizub (8743) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle: Deep golden to copper coloured, clear, smaller loose white head, malt and cooked vegetables in the nose, suppressed hops detectable; moderate bitter-sweet flavour and light to medium bodied; slightly lingering drier and hoppier finish with some fruitiness in the aftertaste. Not totally convincing…

Bottle @ weekly tasting thanks to Ansjelaah. Clear orange color, no head at all. Smell lightly malts maybe a touch of sweetness. Taste is hard to describe, cause there’s virtually no flavor at all. No idea what to say about this flavor wise.

Bottle. Pours deep gold with a largish off-white pillowy head. Aroma and flavor are bready, malty, moderately sweet, mildly hoppy, slightly grassy and spicy. Nice rounded lager character. Quite fresh and decidedly springy. Liked this more than I thought I would!
