Bottle poured into a glass beer boot

Clear, yellow with strands of carbonation leading to a one finger foam cap that quickly subides. Few lacings

Grassy, malt, bread and grains with a whisper if lemon aroma.

Clean, crisp, refreshing malts and no bitter aftertaste. A light mouthfeel.perfect beer for a hot summer day. Love this style of beer. Worthy of repeating and stocking in the fridge.

500 ml bottle. Served in a stange, the beer pours a clear straw gold color with about an inch white head that stays around for a long time. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is mostly grainy/bready malt, along with some light herbalness and fruit, mainly grapes. The brew tastes like grainy/bready malt, light grassy/herbal hops, and some grapes. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's crisp, refreshing and easy to drink. It's well carbonated, too. Not a bad beer at all, I'd buy this again at $3.49 a bottle.

Pours a light golden straw with minimal white head.

Grain, lightly floral hops, and fruity notes form the initial aroma. There's a bit of earthy, spicy character.

Flavor reveals light yeast fruitiness, hints of muted lemon and lime,with a backbone of grain, becoming fairly bready and malty, yet slightly dry at the finish. Reminiscent of cereal grain in the peppery, lightly bitter aftertaste. There's a minerally quality that surfaces as it warms.

Body is a touch on the light side, with carbonation a bit high and spritzy.

Minerally overall, with slightly citrusy notes at the base and significant malt presence. Refreshing, yet substantial flavor.

4.24/5  rDev +10.7%

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

appearance: Vigorous bubbles soon dissipate into a weak head golden color has a hint of orange that gives it a nice character

smell: Rich and dynamic loving it. Some Rhein fruits mixed with the light hops with some nice malted barely on the sides

taste: BAM!!! Wow what a rich flavor. Such a difference from other bland hoppy beers that think hops make up for good flavor. Just a dynamic marrying of sweet and bitter with the fruits on the edges.

mouthfeel: Full for its light color. A joy because it tastes like more than it looks or usually smells. Really a joy to taste

overall: Great Cologne brew, a true bench mark of the marker and the style happy to have
