0,33 l swing-top bottle. Pours clear golden, fine white crown. Grainy und light hopy on the nose. Starts surprisingly bitter. Too bitter in my opinion. Later metallic, apples and pepper with grainy background. Not really a hit.
The beer has a quite nice look. The color of the beer is golden yellow. The beer has quite some cloudiness. On top of the beer, a nice thick layer of soft, silky foam, as white as snow. The beer looks robust and quite pure, because of the unfiltered appearance. The smell is quite rich. It is nice. The beer has a nice sweet malty base, together with hints of hop. The malts give aromas of sweet biscuits. I also smell a familiar Dortmund beer type smell. I just read that Dortmund is high on Sulfur, so that must be it. The taste has this same thing in it. A familiar thing, which i can’t totally put my finger on. The rest of the taste is composed of a nice malty flavor and a hoppy bitterness. There might be a slight hint of metal, but it’s negligible. The beer has some nice sweets and bitters and a tiny amount of acidity. Not bad. The beer could have had a bit more gas. For the rest, this beer is a nice and strong beer, like a true Germanic. Good.

Appearance: Pale golden with a white head of 1, finger. Retention is not that great but it does give nice lacing.
Aroma: Grain and green apples.
Taste: Malty sweet, Green Apples Sweet, moderate bitter finish with some custard tones, which gives it also a Shandy like aftertaste. The sweet bitterness.
Thin body(But not watery !) , low carbonation.
To me it’s liks Shandy on sterroids, not bad but not great either.
