3.97/5  rDev +32.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle of 330 ml. It poured a light golden-yellow colour, with a whoopy 3 finger head that eventually disappeared, leaving though enough behind to cover the beer's surface. Strong aroma of hops. Taste was bitter but was leaving a sweetness behind. Medium thickness in body, lightly carbonated and you surely can't feel the 6.9% ABV, something that makes it very drinkable.
I got a 6-pack of bottles in a German supermarket, and honestly if I knew it would be that nice I would have taken more.

33cl bottle poured into Willbecher

BBE Nov 2011

A- Golden body with excellent clarity. Bit of a gusher producing 5 finger head eventually settling to a sustained 1 finger with very good lacing.

S- A citrussy hop note came through intermittently. A little chalky.

T- Its chalky on the tongue, there is a faint malt richness but this chalky quality seems to coat the tongue and any other flavour that might be there is lost.

M- Medium carbonation and body. Coated tongue makes for a clumsy sticky finish.

D- Looks good, but this wall of chalk in the aroma/palate ruin it. Trying to look beyond it, there is no suggestion of real malt richness that is required of the style. Its a bit of a mess really.
