Bottle at Andy and Max’s fantasy tasting. Pours a hazy golden with a nice lasting white head. Aroma is grassy, herbal fresh german hops, good doughy malt with hint of crackers and bread. Flavor is also a mit herbal light grass some mineral, fresh pils malt and light sweetness, but finishes fairly dry and clean- a bit of yeast in suspension though and perhaps a touch overhopped, but still very fresh and nice!

Bottle I took to Andy and Max’s fantasy tasting, courtesy of a trade with sleepydave on BA. Pours a lightly hazy gold hued yellow with a medium sized white head. Crisp clean cracker and biscuit grain and faint lemony citrus notes. Medium bodied, faintly sweet, biscuit and cracker and grain. Clean crisp grain finish, with a light bitterness. Tasty and easy.
