3.14/5  rDev -10.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Picked this up in Jenks, OKm, BBD of Nov 14

Pours an effervescent bronze/amber with 3 fingers of pearl colored head. Alright head retention & lacing

S: Pears & leafy hops; bready notes as well

T: Follows the nose, dryness and a whisper of caramel up front. Some pear notes, a little bit of leafy & herbal hop notes, plus a bit more dryness as this warms. Some woody bitterness in the finish & pears, plus sulphur notes, major detractor

MF: Light/medium bodied, fairly firm carbonation

Drinks easy enough, a fairly middling take on the style, I thought it was a little better when I tried this in Germany, but that was 10 years ago...

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Clear, amber coloured. Thin layer of stable foam with small bubbles.
S: When pouring, a nice typically German hop aroma is evident. Unfortunately it dissipates quickly. Slightly sulfury (I would have guessed it's a lager, but it isn't) and a nice malty note on the background.
T: Decent bitterness. This beer has a very nice, typical malt-flavour which unfortunately remains on the background and in the aftertaste.
M: Dry, light body.
Overall: Decent beer. If all flavours would have been a little more prominent it would be a great beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Copper, clear, medium head

Aroma: Malty, spicy

Taste: Slightly creamy, with bitter, dry finish

Remarks: I was a little disappointed in this beer. I'm a bigger fan of Ales overall, so Altbiers are usually a good choice. But this one just wasn't as tasty as my favorite, Diebels.

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a stange
Nice clear copper/mohogany brown.
Head disappears very quickly. No lacing.
Smell not so strong. Sweet malt with some spicyness.

Nice mouthfeel. Lots of fine carbonation.
Taste is nicely balanced, goes from malty-fruity and a little spicy to hoppy-bitter at the end. Slightly metallic in the finish and malty after-taste.

Well drinkable.
