Geruch leicht grasig, getreidig, Brot. Start marginal süßlich. Danach würzig, brotige Töne. Abgang malzig, eher laff, unharmonisch. Nicht so gut.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, 4.9%. Bready and papery aroma, not fresh-smelling. Clear shiny dark golden colour. OK white head. The flavour is also papery and bready, but in a fresher way than the aroma. A little sweet and slightly rotten grain. Some floral aroma hop. Decent chalky mouthfeel. This beer seems to have its ups and downs, but mostly downs, I feel.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours clear pale golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour with a good deal of yeast and a subtle note of citrus and malt. High carbonation. Bitter finish with a mild estery note. OK but not quite anything above the foreseeable.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. This export could even be a northern german pilsner due to its tough bitterness and missing aromas. Starts sweetish, watery in the middle and horrible in the end. Disappointing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The usual ugly and old-school label on the bottle. Clear light golden colour with low head and medium body. Nose of malt. I tested this beer when I was really thirsty because it was the first warm day of the year. And -of course- it was really refreshing and cooling. Taste of medium bitter hops, mild grain, mild citrus fruits and hay. Quite low carbonation but very easy and nice to drink.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mittelgelb, reichlich Schaum. Eine Blumenwiese im Aroma mit etwas Heu. Reiner Malzgeschmack, honig-lieblich und auch floral, nicht klebrig, gute Süffigkeit. Ein Wald-und-Wiesn-Helles für jeden Tag!
