radarsock (1223) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2017
Couldn't pass up.

$3.99 in town.

Mint, grapefruit, and salad greens whirl gloatingly with restrained purpose, its aged wooden orangeness settling under a thick yet fragile white thought bubble. Could smell the nutty bitterness and banana sweetness and earthy spiciness at the core of its being. Autumnal leaves, chestnuts, and green apple while warming up.
After a pleasant sip, I remarked: "Europeanly crisp. Americans would have a hard time making this."
Soft, manageable; like melted butter churned before the sun even came out. A lingering syrup-like consistency wasn't offensive in the least to find upon swallowing down.
German noble hops, like the damp lawn variety that keeps us desirous of all Deutschland exported goods. Musty aspect from the wet and drying work clothes smelt from and tasted throughout, is evidence enough as how uniformly well they operate together, the various flavors and its dank basement musty deliciousness peaking under a soiled pear, wine lees, and little more tree-nut bitterness, achieves this as an instant success.
Pale finish, like licking the bark of a birch tree. Its birch sap endures after the bark leaves the physical world - a solid twenty minutes, give or take.
Beers should be brewed in the style of this beauty and left alone. Even if their Bavarian does not catapult the Himburgs to Best Brewery Status, they straightforwardly create some of the best sessionable German ales available. I do not doubt that Germany has offerings that will make the mighty Bavarian pale in comparison, but until that glorious days arrives, I'll be drinking the shit out of this as if it's a 3 Fonteinen release.

A fruity smell, grapefruit, citrus and hops. The white creamy head is medium large with a normal carbonation. The body is yellow. A fruity taste, some yeast and hops. The body is light to medium strong, very creamy with a lively carbonation.

PowY (1132) - AUSTRIA - JUL 29, 2017
330 ml bottle, bb 17.11.2017. Pours a clear golden with a white head. The aroma is medium hoppy, grassy, some hay. Light to medium, crisp body with a lively carbonation and a light to medium bitterness. The flavor starts lightly malty with some dried fruits and lightly grainy. Then follow bitter herbal hop notes with faint hints of citric fruits. Overall crisp and easy to drink - good.

rozsoma (1142) - Gyõr, HUNGARY - JUL 6, 2017
0,33 bottle present from Germania. Ez a hidegkomlózottság mindig a főzés után a szűrőn fennmaradt komlótrutymót idézi meg lelki szemeim elé. Elégtelen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
