500ml brown bottle, taken at The Cask Pub and Kitchen, London.

Liked the look of this beer, good amber almost copper in colour, clear and clean: the off-white head full and lasting (I poured it vigorously myself).

The smell was of light flowery hops and malty molasses, each mild and yet powerful, those aromas stayed throughout the pint.

More malts than hops in the taste, not the sweeter malts, bread and biscuit compared to caramel and toffee flavours which were there, but as a secondary feel. The hops held it together nicely coming towards the end of the mouthfeel to give a semi-bitter finish.

Would take this over almost any Pilsner/Lager/Helles I know.

4.29/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Regular 0.5L bottle with a scenery shown on the label in which J. Greif's beer cellar is opposing a beer tent and many rows of benches, somewhere out in the woods.

A deep amber liquid and a tiny off-white head fill up the glass, plenty of lace. Unfortunately the beer starts looking a bit dull halfway through the first glass.

The nose is filled with a grainy and sweet aroma of malt that is slightly toasted as well. Hop presence is minimal, as is a faint forrest-like impression. A nicely balanced, not too sweet aroma (almost that of a Bock).

The flavour brings out more nuances. It combines a sweet and toasty malt characteristic with a strong accent on the hops. A more salty, slightly liquorice-like note can be found also. It finishes rather clean in a bitter fashion.

Carbonation is a bit low, giving a soft mouthfeel to the beer's medium body.

A terrific beer, very friendly and quite complex.
