355ml can. Gold pour. Fruity aroma, mixed popsicle aroma. Falvor is grainy and hoppy, fresh, refreshing, bit bittersweet.
Post tasting thoughts:
This delivered but was a bit odd in a few ways.
Drank this on a hot day after doing yard work so this got a higher rating than I probably would’ve given it. Aroma was weak. Lager smells with a hint of boiled egg. Pour was a light clear gold with no head. Taste was offensive at first but then as I got hotter it tasted better. Fresh baked bread and crust were the main flavors but there was little carbonation to help them. The sulfur hurt and there was a wet doughy finish. Im not a huge fan of the style to begin with, but this is one of the rare German styles that I think Americans just haven’t figured out yet closey22 (2032) - Mt.
