First had: can, sample tasting at Edgemont Beer

Golden-straw color, clear, with a thin layer of bubbles on top. Plastic cup, so no real lacing going on. Aroma was pretty "lagery," sweet with bready malts, almost doughy, and some light floral hops. Taste of cereal grains, sweet, more of the bready malts from the aroma, light floral hops. A pretty basic lager. A bit bland and dull, no real crispness to it. Light body. I guess it was okay, if you like lagers, but I wasn't really digging it, and I wouldn't even call it a lawnmower beer. But it was a free sample, so I couldn't turn it down.

330ml can. Footed flute glass @ Freiburg (L´Hospitalet-Barcelona). Pale gold color, clear appearance.. White froth, close crown & fairly good retention. Spicy, floral, yeasty & grassy aromas. Malty & crisp upfront rounded by hints of apple & pear on the back. Light body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Pale malty texture & spicy touch. Clean bitterness arises in the middle & lingers into a bitter/sweet finish. Dried aftertaste. Easy to drink !!

A: An alluringly bright gold color.

S: Pleasantly sweet grains. Freshly shelled wheat husks. No grassiness nor subtle spicing can be detected.

M: Medium bodied and smooth. Not as a crisp finish as desired. Only semi-dry, and left with a wet palate. Breadiness pervades.

T: Honeysuckle. Very clean tasting malt forward beer. Needs more hop bitterness to tidy up the malt sweetness.

O: Definitely showcases the German malts nicely, but at the expense of any noticeable contribution from the Czech pilsen hops.
