This beer is medium amber with an interesting scent of honey, grains and dirt. The flavor is a tad too sweet and sticks around subtly after finish. Went well with spicy wings, which were consumed after initial rating.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Green 11.2 oz bottle, purchased @ Julio’s Liquors for $1.55 with Wild Six discount. Almost clear yellow, light carbonation. Very thin white head. No lace. Light skunky nose. Taste is light Euro hops, mild malt and skunk. Thin watery body. Tastes like a watered down Heineken, I wouldn’t ever drink this again.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Green bottle festbier. 11.2 oz bottle.
It pours an amberish gold with a frothy white head that actually leaves some nice lacing.
Smell is lightly skunked, it smells like a beefed-up Euro Pale Lager. It is like if you made an EPL maerzen.
The flavor follows, it is a bit more malt forward than the nose would suggest, but it is pretty basic, and weak for a Festbier.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Pours golden-orange colour with not much head. The nose has notes of fine malts with just a hint of caramel, but no more than a hint. The taste has very pronouced hops from the beginning to the end - there seems to be notes of lemon intermingling notes of malt and caramel. The palate is unusual for a lager - there’s more texture and structure but not so much refreshment. Overall, I like it, though it’s not what I expected!
