2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, golden-yellow with a one-inch head. Good carbonation is clearly evident. Mild hop and faint malt aromas. Hop and malt balance is great. Very clean and crisp, but overall flavor is a very weak, even for its style. The mouthfeel is light but suits the style well, I suppose. Not terrible, but not impressive, either.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden beer with standar carbonation white head, dough aromas and caramel notes are perceived, the beer flavor itself is sweet and the maltiness is maybe quite high. Sadly no hops are perceived, which actually increase the sweetness and the alcoholic aftertaste.

I was gifted a cold pack of 6 this morning of these. Made my mouth water seeing them. danke X 2,016.
This is a highly drinkable, enjoyable and unencumbered bier.
Forgot to mention, I gave 2 of the six to another lover of beer on the way home.
Good discussion ahead when we meet again.
This is what beer is all about, oft’times.
