Vollmundig hopfiger Antrunk mit angenehmen Herbetönen. Der Hopfen bringt dabei auch bittere Noten mit sich, hält sie aber weitgehend zurück.Spritzig, der Hopfen breitet sich im Abgang weiter aus. Gut!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Brauerei Witzgall, Schlammersdorf, during Fin and Loz’s cycle ride around villages to the South and South East of Bamberg, Germany 19-06-10 Gold colour with a white head. This didn’t appear quite as bitter as the lager bier but it was very good all the same. This seemed to have a little more body than the lager, was a little sweeter and possibly easier drinking, with some straw and soft maltiness. But overall I think I preferred the lager.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled (from bierkompass.de). Schlammersdorfer Bräuhaus, Witzgall-bier Vollbier (4.7%), but probably this one. Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is bready malts, some grassy hops as well as some saltwatery and herbal notes. Flavour is bready malts, saltwater, some grassy hops. Quite bodied actually, but the flavour is a bit boring.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden colour. The head is alive, like blasting missiles into the surface of the moon. Herbal, slightly fruity hop nose. There’s a hint of buttery but with good herbal notes and clean, fresh bready malts.

Draft @ brewpub. Bright gold. White thick alive head. Aroma is really fresh grain. Great quaffability with minerals on the tongue. Great vollbier balance, sweeter than kellerbier, has a nice hop but a stunningly strong grain background. Nutty, dry, delicious.
