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

330ml bottle poured into pint glass3/1/12

A clear straw yellow with lots of bib bubbles popping up from everywhere and sustaining a fingers worth of bone white head that leaves a few random patches of lace

S grassy hops with a little lemon, simple but decent

T slight sweet grains but for the most part it mimics the smell quite well

M clean and crisp with just a little bite, thin but enough bubbles to give it some life, pretty good in this department

O basic but fairly solid for the style, would make a good summer lawnmower brew

not a whole lot going on but what's there I like, the Germans make a much better macro then we do here in the Americas

A Christmas gift from my father.

Into a pint glass (also had in a pilsener, nothing changed):

A: clear yellow colored body, head lasts merely seconds before it dies into the body, just a tad of white lacing here and there

S: earthy hops

T: mild tangy hops, light malts in the background

M: smooth, sessionable, sweet aftertaste and crisp finish

O: this is good for the style and good for me

This was served from the bottle at Bavaria Bar and Restaurant in St. Maarten. It was poured into a stange and produced a golden brew. It held a brief two finger head of white bubbles, leaving no lacing as it went. There was supreme translucency, with no sediment noted. Carbonation appears to be medium. The aroma was full of floury malts, which were crisp and had a nice toast to them. They also afforded a bitterness to the nose. Filling in the rest were notes of apple sweetness and pale honey sugars. As we sipped, the taste began with light metallics, pale malts, and that light honey component from the nose. Through the middle we saw slight booze, apple acetylaldehyde, and more of those standard pale malts. The finish was with a grassy, leafy hop bitterness, making itself known only for a brief balance with the malts. The aftertaste breathed with flour and chalk, and tinny malts. The body was light and the carbonation was medium. The mouth was met with a crisp brew leaving a light coat, with little cream and froth. With warmth it became watery, but seemed to retain the body when cold. The abv is appropriate and the beer drank easily.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was the lightness and drinkability. In the end, however, the flavor and aromas seemed overly basic, without introducing anything stark from the outset. The beer was ultimately refreshing, but nothing to write home about.
