3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice malty aroma but not without plenty of German hops. Very faint banana when I swirled it around. Bright golden beer with a nearly pristine cover that laces the glass. The flavour is of nice sweet base malt that is thankfully not overwhelmed by hops bitterness, however there is a significant ethanol flavour that dominates the second half of the tasting experience, drawing too much of the resiny flavour aspect out of the hops. This beer reminds me very much of the Tegernseer Spezial, which had the same flaw, but also had more bitterness, making the latter beer a little bit less appealing. Medum to light body and warming from alcohol. Clean finish.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. A clear golden with a medium white creamy head. Aroma is sweet and malty with just a citric hoppy side to it. Okay mouhtfeel. Flavour is far too sweet, it is not balanced nearly enough by any hops. Not good at all.
