2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5 l bottle from local ’Trinkgut’, best before February 2017. Clear, golden amber with a thin, dense, stable, white head. Grassy, slightly fruity and a bit floral aroma of straw, some citrus and a touch grains. Slightly sweetish, moderately fruity-grassy and a bit floral taste of straw, grains, some citrus and hints of honey, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately grassy finish. Medium body, smooth and quite effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Drinkable, not really fantastic, not sure how old that bottle already is though.

Bottle at Pigs Ear Festival 2016. Clear gold lasting cream head. Some cereal. A pale marzen. Some sweet pale malts. Some decent hops. In fact as my palate adjusted i started to like it. A touch over carbonated. Just a litte puke sweetness. But otherwise a decent strongish blond lager marzen. Ok .

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
December 2016 - Swing top bottle share at Pig’s Ear BF, Hackney Round Chapel. As ’Schwaben Bräu Volksfestbier’. Thanks to Harrisoni for this. Aroma is buttery, sweetcorn, grainy. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is light buttery malt, grainy, some sweetcorn. Semi-sweet, light bitterness. Balanced and drinkable but quite basic. A decent enough beer but really not standing out from the countless German lagers you can choose from. (2.9)
