3.5/5 rDev -4.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Bottle: standard 500mL brown bottle, traditional German label.
Appearance: a slightly hazy golden yellow in colour, with a thin but lasting head.
Aroma: there are sweet bread and biscuit malts with an overtone of light floral hops. Note overpowering, but enticing none-the-less.
Taste: there is a good bread malt backing, but most of the flavour comes from sweet citric and floral hops. Not overwhelming, but a nice sessional.
Aftertaste: dissipates reasonably quickly, which is fine by me. This brew does go down quite easy.
Mouth feel: light to medium in body without being watery. Fair bit of carbonation per the style - brings the flavours across nicely.
Overall: a nice lager / pilsener with a few different malts and hops than one would normally see. A nice one for every now and then, I think - say, once a year in October :)
Serving type: bottle
