Hoje dia de saborear mais uma cerveja alemã, de uma marca que até gosto um tanto, mas que dessa vez deu aquela exagerada e se mostrou bem forte nesse rótulo. A apresentação da cerveja é bem comum para a marca, lembra muito algo alemão e não esconde nada, algo que também lembra a realeza, com certa simplicidade agrada pela elegância. A cerveja em si é um dourado praticamente brilhante, algo que chama um tanto a atenção, acompanhado por uma boa formação de espuma, sem exageros, e que deixa a cerveja com um bom aspecto. No sabor a cerveja se mostra um tanto diferente do que na aparência. Se trata de uma cerveja de trigo bem forte, uma intensidade um tanto incomum, e como não se trata de ser algo forte no álcool e sim no trigo, o amargor é um tanto diferente, algo que pode até ser bom inicialmente, nos primeiros goles a sensação é interessante e até boa, mas com o decorrer da experiência, essa intensidade acaba se tornando um pouco enjoativa, e para uma garrafa de 500ml, ´´e um pouco complicado não sentir o amargor prejudicar a experiência. Aqui tanto em goles longos quanto curtos a experiência é quase a mesma, o sabor se altera muito pouco, deixando-a contínua e forte basicamente o tempo inteiro. No geral, uma cerveja que se apresenta bela e interessante, mas que no sabor é bem forte e intensa, o que pode até ser bom inicialmente, mas com o decorrer da experiência torna a cerveja enjoativa e complicada de continuar saboreando com facilidade. #XinGourmet #GuiasLocais #LocalGuides #TheBeerPlanet #TheBeerPlanetClub #BeerKing #BeerKingStore #BeerKingClub #Hofbräu #Oktoberfestbier #München #cerveja #clara #extra #malte #baixa #fermentação #água #malte #cevada #lúpulo #Alemanha #Munique

Ar: Grainy, dry, and toasted; hay and a bit of sweet toast; lean floral hop aroma, very fine. Ap: Light gold and crystal clear; very large, billowing white head with excellent retention, leaving an airy crown of cloud-like foam with chunky lacing along the glass sides. T: Rounded toasted malt; hay and zesty hop flavor, filled with dried flowers, oregano, and pine, but very lean in character; medium-low bitterness; crackers and toast, very full through the finish; a bit of chalk; yeast profile is clean--really showcasing the malt--with a deep, slightly earthy and doughy character. P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation; very smooth and soft; finish is medium-dry. O: A solid example of a German oktoberfest; notably different from the common American versions, with an emphasis on base malt and hops, with no caramel to speak of; definitely on the lighter side of the style, but still with a nice amount of substance--always remaining quaffable.

Ładnie się prezentujące piwo złote z białą pianą. Aromat delikatnie słodowy. W smaku podobnie lekkie nuty wytrawne. Niestety bardziej jest to mocniejszy lager niż piwo oktoberfest w stylu wiedeńskim

Samtzu (584) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 27, 2017
Tap pour. Pours a bright gold with slight off white head. Light yeastie nose. Medium body with a mild sweet front which has notes of yeast. An interesting beer but I doubt I could do an entire day of drinking it.

adamnowek (3306) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 23, 2017
Crystal clear golden. Creamy head. Aroma is malt and soil. Taste is a bit of sweet malt with a hoppy undertone. Crisp.

Rune (13507) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2017
500ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Langnes. Crystal clear straw-golden body under a firm, frothy white head with good duration. Spotty lacing down the glass. Honeyed pale malty aroma. Mid-sweet taste profile of caramel, honey sweetness, grain and moments of noble hops. Mid-sweet malt driven end with restrained notes of alcohol. Medium bodied. Smooth and clean in the mouth. Like it. (Shared with Frau Eva, Tromsø 20.10.2017).

cmacklin (1306) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 20, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a large, frothy, long lasting, white head that laces nicely. Mild aroma of grainy malt, bread and grass. Sweet flavour of grainy malt, biscuit and caramel with a dry, bitter grass finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Just ok, thought this would be better.
