Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a rather medium amber color with a small fizzy looking head of white foam. The head fades almost instantly after pouring leaving just a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is mostly a mix of a slightly grainy and bready smell mixed with some hints of caramel and a bit of a fruity aroma of apple and pear.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready and rather sweeter caramel taste with a little bit a grainy flavor. The grainy flavor is very light throughout, just gaining a bit of intensity toward the end of the flavor. The caramel is later joined by some light fruit notes of green apple and pear. A little bit of grass comes to the tongue at the very end rounding out the taste and leaving a somewhat sour and sweet bready flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is moderate in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather standard. Overall it is OK for the flavors as it keeps it drinkable all while supporting the flavors to a decent extent.

Overall – Just a rather standard amber at best. A little too sour due to the green apple with not enough light roasted flavor to really be a good amber. Decent to drink, but nothing special.

This beer was included in a variety half-rack dated March 2013, and purchased for $13.99 at a convenience store (and no sales tax either- this is Butte, Montana). The bottle had a "best before" date of July 2013.

Poured from a 12 ounce longneck bottle into a Shaker pint glass. A moderate pour produces a 1/2 inch creamy white head. The head sticks around for a good bit and coats the glass. Plenty of swirls of carbonation are evident within the beer, which is a pale amber in color.

The beer has a touch of yeasty fruitiness in the aroma and a tartness in the taste (faint raspberry?). Just a touch of bitterness on the tongue, with lingering fruity, mead-like highlights. The beer is fairly light bodied, yet has a creamy mouthfeel.

Another very good lager beer from Bayern at a reasonable price. Bayern is rapidly becoming my go-to beer (also, an old favorite), as it is relatively inexpensive, readily available, not insanely hopped, refreshing, and yet complex enough to savor and enjoy.
