0,5L from Hopfen and Malz, Berlin. - Pours a hazy orange color with a nice frothy head. Aroma is yeasty, dusty and slightly spicy with some herbal hop character. Flavor is bready, yeasty and well balanced with some nice bitterness in the finish. This is a thirst quencher for sure! Really good! Would definitely recommend.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery in Aug. 2014: Hazy polished golden. Uniform small-bubbled head. Lovely nose of lemon candy, sulfur, minerals, and nectar. Soft carbonation, though somewhat fuzzy. Initially staunchly mineralic, dryly malty and snappy with the welcomed grip of toasted hay. Pillowy baguette depth accompanies the crisper toasty edges. Sulfury bite of yeast contributes rusticity and ample vitality. Body is well-supplied with succulent lemon oils and gently sweet flower nectar, which is amplified by the body’s contrasting leanness and exquisite cleanness. Flower petal softness accentuates the melon rind bitterness and scratchy lemon verbena in the squeaky-clean, elegantly hoppy finish. Perhaps a tad less characterful and sulfury than the glorious lagerbier (from the gravity barrel, that is), but flawlessly crafted all around. Remarkably clean, juicy, and balanced, a la Witzgall Vollbier.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From CO2 keg at Brauerei Zehendner in Mönchsambach. Effervescent hazed gold with a fine, sticky white head.
Mineral water, calcium, lemon and bread dough aroma with light floral hop touches. Clean, lemon-focused hop flavor and aroma, sweet to semi-sweet, bitter, but balanced. Quenching hop acids and bright minerality. Not as characterful as the Lagerbier from gravity barrel, but still difficult to not fall in love with and put down quickly.
