A - This one is crystal clear and amber-gold with a two finger head of loose bubbles. The head is honestly pretty junky looking.... not the tight white foam that I'd expect. Lacing is sporadic at best, and retention is poor.
S - Sour fruit and a crazy funk note that seems like brettanomyces but I honestly doubt that that is what I'm smelling. Smells a bit like Zebra Stripes fruit gum and "old man aftershave" like Old Spice. Some donut and sour apple show up too. Weird, but not bad at all.
T - Sour apple and funky pumpkin with some pumpernickel and sesame seed notes too. This is not striking me as a very well put together beer. The flavors are odd, but I like odd. I get the feeling that some of this funky flavor may be attributable to this bottle's long journey overseas and long respite on the shelf of my local beer store.
M - Light bodied and astringent. Crisp and wafer-y. Finishes clean with a hint of salt and minerals... like a salt-n-vinegar potato chip.
D - Not bad. I like the oddball factor, but it isn't really doing what it should for the given style. I could drink a few of these, but I would reach for it's darker sibling "Morchl" which is just outstanding. I'm kinda "meh" about this one.

3/9/2012 on bottle
A- This beer pours a deep straw yellow body with a lumpy off-white head that is thick and a quick sea of carbonation pops to the top. The head sticks in sheets with each sip.
S- the clean lager aroma has a slightly sweet sulfur and some pils malt note to it with a wet mash aroma in the finish. The soft noble hop note comes through in the finish as it opens.
T- The clean gentle sweetness is pale malt but there is a soft slightly sweet mineral water note in the finish. The noble hop bitterness lingers a bit in the aftertaste but stays in balance
M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a slightly slippery texture and a gentle fizz.
O- Nice German Pilfer that is just a touch sweeter than most but it adds a nice freshness to the malt flavor. It is well balanced but the mineral water taste tends to grow a bit to much as it opens.
