2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A bottle from the so-called ’Pinkus German Restaurant’ on Keelung Road, drunk at home. Aroma: wheaty, bready. Appearance: clear, light amber, minimal head. Palate: medium body, rather thin. Soft carbonation, bitter at the finish but doesn’t last. Taste: lightly bitter, I detect a sour note. A nice change from the local beer, but lacks punch.

Corny aroma, some acidic husky grains. Watery palate, a bit flat. Light grains in the taste, plentyhusky, but harshly hopped, a bit acidic. Rough, harsh, more and more acidic. Corny and bitter hoppy finish. Not the normal eco probs, but other probs instead.
