BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle from TAR, thanks Jeff! Poured a clear yellow color with a thick, dense, creamy white head that slowly faded to a thick layer and left some spotty lacing. Lightly sweet, honey-touched cereal, dough, light cut hay, faint spice, moderate grassy hoppiness, and a soft fruitiness (orange, dried apricots, faint lemon). Crisp, lightly bitter entry with some light honey sweetness and a soft doughiness that leads into a cereal graininess with some slight husk followed by a moderately bitter, softly spicy grassy hoppiness that grows as it lingers into the finish with some soft undertones of dried apricots. Creamy mouth feel offset by the hoppy dryness, very inviting and drinkable. Slightly husky and not quite as clean as I would prefer, but still enjoyable.

Bottle purchased at the brewery yesterday (had on draft at the keller as well).
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is clear light yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with light notes of soap and DMS.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky, slightly unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Rather shocking difference from the Lagerbier. Both at the Keller and here in my apartment I just can’t find much enjoyment in the pils. Even the Kellerbier was underwhelming, as was the Rittmayer house-brew. Seems like a rather rushed batch, rough and raw and without much enticing character. 3fourths (9349) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2013

Bottled. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel, and so is the flavor, leading to a lightly bitter finish. The mouthfeel is a bit sticky. Thanks yespr for sharing. pivnizub (10662) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2008

Golden with a nice head. The aroma has notes of straw, malt and flower. The flavour is refreshing with notes of straw, light flower/fruit and a nice, clean bitterness. It’s very quenching and nice. Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2008
