3.5/5  rDev -2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

0.5 l bottle, bought in Germany, during a short trip I made recently.

Dark golden, hazy after pouring the residu, good fluffy head, low carbonation, good lacing.

Malty smell and taste. A little bit of hops, some sweetness from malts. A bit flat and faint.
Slight bitter aftertaste.
Light body.
Overall very balanced beer. Balanced and modest.
Pouring the residu improved this brew a bit, but all in all , it could do with a little more aroma and flavour.

A murky, amber, copper beer with a creamy head which settles into a small layer.

Smell is malty with notes of spent grains and a bit of a Kellerbier "off-flavor", which is a bit nutty and a bit tart.

Taste light malty with decoction-like caramel, Maillard products and a nutty, spent grain taste. Bitterness is low and the beer is a bit hoppy. I cannot determine the type of hop used. Mouthfeel is thin.

A- Dark Fruity Orange coloring, head poured out to be an inch or so, not to stick and slowly died to a thin layer across the top

S- Thick malt smell with fruit and a small sharp sour hop smell

T- Very light fruity tasting with underlying of hops. The malt is much more subtle then I thought it was going to be. has a slight metallic taste

M- light carbonation and body, almost a carbonated water feel but NOT water in any other way rather then feel.

D- Great beer. If you can get you hands on it def give it a try, amazing summer beer.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a straight pint glass.

Pours a dark gold colour, with a pretty decent head on it.

Smells yeasty and malty.

Tastes very refreshing, with subtle bready malts, yeast and bitter hops finishing it off.

Overall a nice beer, unremarkable, but nice.

Pours clear orange-amber (with sediment hazy) with excellent beige head, very good retention. Taste of smoke and smoked fish, aargh, astounding! Taste of smoked malts and sunflower seeds. Low carbonation, medium body, low hop profile. Brewed by receipt of 1422. Pure pleasure.

A hazy appearance, copper to amber in color, with heavy carbonation and a fine, small white head.

Aroma is rather heavy and consists mainly of a thick, slightly musty or sharp body of malt, a few fruity notes, a bit of fresh hops and some yeast. Can't wait to dig in!

The taste has some more bitterness to it and is a bit more hoppy. The finish is dry and bitter and brings some yeasty chewiness to the fore. A very pleasing sweetness holds everything together.

A lovely mouthfeel: slick and a well-build body, with potent carbonation.

Certainly not a Maerzen/Oktoberfest as indicated. Yet enough to celebrate when drinking this top brew.
