3.15/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - light brown, bubbly white head and little visible carbonation.
S - Smells sweet with dark notes of caramel, toffee and chocolate.
T - Less sweet than it smells, the chocolate and caramel are only present in the finish which is very quick. There is some bitterness present, but not much. Tastes darker than it looks.
M - Heavy body, but heavily carbonated as well, like sparkling syrup.
D - Fairly decent, but perhaps too thick and too heavy.

The colour is medium yellow. The large airy head is white.

The smell is quite weak. Some bitter notes as well as some herbs. A touch of sour dough.

The taste is, as a German “edel” is supposed to be, mild. Some sweet notes, some anonymous bitterness. The aftertaste is quite malty with some bitter hops and butter in the finish.

The carbonation is rather strong; small bubbles. The liquid is watery.

More malt than in a standard Euro lager, otherwise a quite simple brew.

look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: The pour is pale golden and the white head is medium large and compact. Dissipation leaves rich lacings.

S: Sweet malt and bitter hops, but there's a faint smell of corn that kind of ruins a good thing...

T: Light in taste; bitter hops and sweet malt.

M: Aftertaste lingers with some bitterness. Body is medium while carbonation is rich but smooth.

O: Started off quite nice, but is a below average product.
