JDBaker11058's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 13/20
JDBaker11058 (2427) - Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Appearance: slightly hazy light gold, with one finger of bright white head and minimal lacing. Aroma: a bit of grass, with some honey smacks cereal, biscuit, and creamed corn. Taste: very fresh-tasting, with semi-dried grass providing a nice balance to sweetish cereal grains. Finish: clean, crisp, and extremely refreshing, but not long lasting. Notes: This was an outstanding classic Dortmunder/Helles lager. Perfectly balanced, very fresh and lively in the palate, and refreshing. Couldn’t ask for more.

Als 0,5l Bügelflasche "Allgäu Lager". Hellgelb klar, heller Schaum. Honig und Getreideduft. Herber Honiggeschmack.

Bottle. Clear golden color, white head. Aroma has mainly malts, hint of hops. Malty body, quite pure taste, hint of lager hops.

It has beautiful lasting foam and a gentle malty aroma. Lovely rich malt flavor where a little sweetness will have ample space and thus gives lager a greater experience than found in a usual average lager. Hop bitterness leaves little slow in coming, and it is positive that we therefore have time to enjoy its fresh malt has hint of a little fresh newly harvested grain. The hops are slightly markedly towards the end and put a fine edge on the whole. Obviously, an all-malt lager which only Germans brew with great precision. Carbonation is soft and it makes it easy to drink, thirst-quenching and very delicate.

Dorada muy clara. Apenas espuma. Aroma neutro. Malteada en boca, con escasa carbonatacion y cuerpo. Algo aguada. Final citrico. Refrescante.

0.5 liter bottle purchased at Albertsons supermarket in Oakland Park, FL Not bad.

Russo (2013) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - APR 11, 2014
Hazy golden color with a nice white head that leaves small lacing. Aroma is light fruity and malty. Flavor is like aroma but with more sweetness and some bitterness. Light body with medium carbonation and a refreshing finish.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, getreidig, leicht herb. Geschmack malzig würzig, getreidig, minimale Bitterkeit.

Poured from 1pint 9 oz bottle at Oktoberfest in Mount Angel, Oregon. A very good beer- traditional wheat marzen.

HopfenWeisse (1558) - - SEP 14, 2013
Clear yellow color with small head. Aroma is grainy. Flavor is malt, sweet. Not so great, but ok.

"Neuschwansteiner Das Echte - Hirschbräu" it says on the label on the "Bügelverschlussflasche" : swing-top/beugel-bottle 0,5L. Bought at K-market Kilpisjärvi Finland, and also Eurospar Langnes Tromsø, and sometimes Ica Supermarket Isrenna Tromsø. Pours a creamy foam on top of the straw yellow body. Grassy scents from hops on the meadow, and some citric hints as well. Superb taste and mouthfeel; a citric fresh and rich hoppy flavour, some hints from chocolates, raisins, firtree sticks, bisquits, dutch hard candies, butter. Aftertaste is not that rich. Overall this is a good beer. Sehr gutes Bier, vielen Dank!
