2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (50 cl) from bierzwerg.de. Sahdy golden with medium white head. O bit dusty and old malt aroma with some faint herbal hops, and some stale vegetables. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Semi dry, low to medium bitterness. Another bottle from this which doesn’t seem to hold up very well when approaching it’s BBD (March 2012). A shame, because I get the feeling that there is a good beer lurking behind here.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Muffiger und herber Antrunk ohne Frische, säuerlich, sehr trocken. Der Hopfen ist stumpf und ebenfalls muffig. Dunkel getreidig. Säuerlicher werdend, ebenfalls getreidiger und etwas hopfiger. Kein wirklich süffiges Lager, das zudem disharmonisch wirkt. 9/8/6/6/6/6

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Swing top bottle with a medium head upon opening.Quite lively when poured with a clear appearance. Some pleasant maltiness with a medium body.The smooth maltiness brings another dimension to this lager, making a mockery of some of the British beers with that label.
Definitely a good one.
