Aufsesser Zwickl
0.5 l bottle from local 'REWE', best before April 2018. Clear, reddish amber with a medium large, pretty dense, stable, off-white head. Sweetish, slightly fruity and a bit grassy-spicy aroma of caramel, honey, straw and a touch of red fruits. Moderately sweet, minimally bitter, slightly grassy taste of caramel, toasted malts, straw and some nuts, followed by a short, moderately bitter, slightly grassy finish. Almost medium-bodied, very smooth and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Highly quaffable session beer, fulfills the expectations, not too deep or interesting though.

Aufsesser Heller Bock
0.5 l bottle from local 'REWE', best before July 2018. Clear, golden amber with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, slightly fruity-grassy aroma of lemon peel, fresh grass and grains. Quite sweet, malty, moderately fruity-grassy and slightly floral taste of grains, light honey, fresh grass and some lemon peel, followed by a short, moderately bitter, slightly dry, rather grassy finish. Medium to full body, almost oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice Heller Bock with unexpected grassy noble hop aroma and therefore not as cloyingly sweet as many fellow Bocks.

Moderately bitter and slightly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation.

Trüb orangenes Bier, leichter Duft nach Gräsern und Teig. Im Antrunk kräftig mit trockener Hefenote. Etwas in Richtung Resin oder Apfel schmecke ich. Mittlere Bitterkeit, welche sich aber schnell verliert und das Bier süffig bleiben lässt.

Aufsesser Premium Pils
"Aufsesser Pils Premium Regionalis", Flasche (50 cl) von Grabsch, Berlin-Lichterfelde. - Satt goldgelb, fast klar. - In der Nase aromatisch grasiger aber ein klein wenig stumpfer Hopfen, leicht teigiges helles Malz. - Antrunk matt hellmalzig mit leicht teigiger, ein wenig künstlicher Malzsüße und kräftiger grasiger Hopfenherbe, die ein wenig stumpf wirkt. Mild rezent, für ein Pilsner fast füllig im Malzkörper, etwas hartes Mundgefühl. Im Abgang leicht schroffe zitronige Hopfenherbe. - Malzbetontes Pilsner süddeutschen Typs, etwas dicklich und zu ruppig gehopft um zu überzeugen.

Blind tasted with 5 other hefeweizens. Beers were: 1. Baderbräu Wheat 2. Neshaminy Creek Highwater Hefeweizen 3. Erdinger Sommerweiße 4. Aufsesser Hefe-Weizen 5. Wolters Weizen 6. Samuel Adams Hefeweizen. Both raters rated the beers 631245.

500ml swing top. Hazed amber gold pour. Aroma is bubblegummy ripe banana. Flavor is unripe banana’s foster, and a hint of citric and wheat. Autolyzed yeast after the finish.

Post tasting thoughts:
This is past its best by and it shows, ive had their pils fresh and thoroughly enjoyed.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with rocky but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and yeast, with dusty and hoppy notes and touches of basement. Sweetish flavour of malt and yeast, with bitter, hoppy notes and dusty hints. Bitterish and estery aftertaste. Medium to high carbonation. Satiating mouthfeel. Quite decent and well-balanced. Very reasonable for the style.
