3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
croc at the brewery. vibrant dry grass nose with pungent noble hops liveliness. nose and flavor of honey cracker malt is enjoyable. smooth and creamy with prickly hop acid and light apple juice flavor, but overall it’s delicious and genuine. the owner’s son trained under Ganstaller at Beck-Brau, and the result is one of the better vollbier’s in the area.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a 1" foamy, frothy white head. Chunky yeast particulate in suspension. Otherwise clear, golden body. Aroma of dusty yeast, floral & woody hops, along with lightly sweet malt. Smooth, bready pils malt flavor dominates and is supported by some musty, lightly spicy hops. Medium-full body is fairly creamy and lightly carbonated. Sweet up front with a mildly bitter finish. Very easy drinking. Overall a fairly tasty, balanced beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2017 My Bottom Line :
Toasted bread and light caramel build a plump body before herbal hops and their bitterness balance out the finish.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A ring of foam dips into the krug.
-The hops took a while to appear; they were able to balance out the finish, but they were strangely shy in the aroma and flavor profile.
-Soft carbonation and agile sugars made for a pleasurable mouthfeel.
-A 2017 pint yielded some diacetyl in the nose.
-This was a quite drinkable, rustic, perhaps rough lager.
On tap at the brewery gasthof.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Herber Antrunk mit deutlich wässriger Note, dennoch ansprechend würzig, in Teilen auch mit rauchigen Aromen. Mit der Zeit wird das Bier würziger, die Wässrigkeit ist trotz Präsenz wenig aufdringlich. Deutlich holzig, die Würzigkeit wirkt dadurch trocken. Gelungenes und süffiges Bierchen. 9/10/11/11//11

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle at the Pigs Ear Beer Festival, London on 6 December 2006. Pale straw colour. Very doughy, bready aroma with a whiff of butterscotch. Pretty much more of the same on the palate - less bready and without the butterscotch. Very soft mouthfeel. Ends up relatively clean but not very inspiring.

Draught at the brewpub. Mild bready aroma, a little sweet and spicy from the hops. Looks clear yellow in the mug. The flavour is sweet, bready, slightly vinous. Mild bitterness. Tastes a little stronger ABV than your average lager.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Real powerful nose of weetabix with an underlying acacia honey, one of the most powerful noses I’ve had from a bottled lager. Body of teh beer is class, nice & rounded with light conditioning. The flavour is again nice & full on , there’s a blast of cereal with that nice delicate honeyed background, but also a purveying slightly green, earthy , damp straw & vegetal character, its not unpleasant but wouldn’t be top of my flavour charts. Now this bottle only has a months shelf life & I’m 2 weeks into that when trying, but I would love to try this on draught to see what its like & I reckon it would be a belter. Obvioulsy I can only score it from what I’ve tasted.
