bottle, donated by pivnizub! Deep golden colour, malty nose. The name suggests hops, the beer starts very malty, however. Dry hops blend in towards the finish. Not very hoppy, but quite nice, nevertheless!

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts not as hoppy as exspected, more malty-spicy with a mild dry background. Finish with more grasy notes, a bit sourish. Not as exspected, but still not bad.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(swing top bottle) Clear, golden colour with a big and blond foamy head. Draffy malty aroma with traces of citrus and metallic hops. Mildly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a slightly sharp carbonation. Pale malt upfront with traces of cara-malt, backed by a mildly herbal hoppy background; moderately dry and bitter finish, again with herbal accents. Likeable but nothing special. 22.XII.12

Bügelverschlußflasche: Deep golden, clear, small, loose and quickly collapsing white head, delicate caramelly-grainy nose with a faint metallic tinge and a slight herbal-hoppy background; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, a bit fizzy; caramelly-bitter finish with delicate traces of aromatic hops. Quite nice surprise…
