1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle (BB Feb 2014).
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain, nuts), with notes of metal, DMS.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, husky.
Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic.
Mirrors my experience with the helles vollbier back in May, but even worse this time...very metallic and overall just awful, completely undrinkable although short of repulsive (the metal is the worst part). I hold out hope that the draft samples are completely different, but they were closed on this trip.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle looks simple, a bit like a cheap beer. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts malty, fruity like plum and lemon, quite sourish background. Mild dry notes. Finish still dominated by malty-sourish notes. Not my favourite.
