SinH4 (4797) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2017 Tap at the Bräustüberl. Deep clear golden color with big white head. Aroma is honey, flowery, some German bottom-fermenting yeasts, a bit phenolic. Taste is an explosion of honeymelon, flowery hops, honey, apples. Sweet finish with a hint of booze. Full-bodied and sweet, but nicely balanced and quite clean. An excellent Heller Bock (a style I am usually not too fond of).

Ungstrup (37676) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 15, 2016
A dark golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, grass, hops, and a bit of bread. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, alcohol, bread, and grass, leading to a dry finish where the alcohol tingles the tongue.

Draught at Deep Ellum, 7/10/15.
Very cool to see this guy on tap in the States! A lovely peachy-apricot color with some darker coppers, qood clarity and a white head that is large and slowly fades to cover.
Minerals, flowers and "sweat" in the nose; not sure if this is malt-based, hop-based or a combination of the two, but it’s actually quite interesting. Gives it a real rustic flare and helps bridge the lightly bitter hops and the lightly sweet malts (light biscuits, stale cookies, light sourdough). A touch of metal in the nose as well, though light and almost more seltzer/mineral-like. Medium strength of aroma and no alcohol noted.
Different in the flavor, quite unexpectedly and enjoyably so. The malts, while still nicely rich and well-extracted, are quite dry and allow a significantly bitter hop flavor to show through, certainly balancing and even tipping the balance scales to much more hop/bitterness-forward. It’s lovely and refreshing (in both senses of the word) and with the ample but not overdone carbonation and soft, but ever-present malts, it goes down easy, but still provides a bock-like experience. Straw, heavily spicy hop notes and touches of both sourdough and honey linger delightfully.

Nice malt character, almost too carbonated, very good clarity. I had from tap on mid summer

neepsntatties (1988) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2015
On draught at Belmont Station. Colour...clear, pale gold with a think white head. Nose...delightfully malty with notes of freshly baked biscuits, Pilot bread and clover honey. Palate...lightly bready and doughy with notes of Carnation malted milk powder, honeycomb and jasmine flower. The CO2 is delicate but not absent, and the finish is lightly sweet but with a hint of freshness.

Mortlach (2347) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 21, 2015
On tap @Buskers Pub (Rome). Pours hazy bright golden with a great white head. Aroma is fruity, peach, ripe pear, banana, biscuit, cereals, amazing. Flavour is medium sweet at first, fruity, malty, light bitter in the end. Medium body, medium carbonation. Good!
