2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Lang-Bräu, Sept. 2014. Pale golden. Fluffy white head quickly collapses. Dull and muted nose of flowers, wet grass, alcohol, and hints of DMS and vanilla cake. Foamy carbonation stings the palate. Sweet, honey-kissed baguette and subtle honeysuckle on initial sip. Pils malt shows decent texture and a soft fullness, but it’s limited in refinement and expressiveness. Malt gradually takes on a sweetness and wet-hay characteristic, and as the beer warms, some vegetal DMS surfaces. Shallow and subdued lemony hops fail to counteract the increasing residual sweetness. Notes of metal and shy baguette are joined by hints of metal in the wet finish. A by-the-numbers version that’s pretty simple and could be much cleaner.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Clear yellow color with small white head. Aroma has bready malts and a bit of honey sweetness. Taste has grains but also some dusty hops. Quite bitter on the finish. There are some off-notes but overall it’s not that bad.

A very in consistant brew therefore only 1.9. Sometimes great, sometimes horrible. I don’t know what they are doing...

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20

Light to moderate, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, faint caramel and hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, faint caramel and metal with faint hoppyness. Bit watery helles. Could use more hoppyness - really nothing special.
