De La Domadora y el León. En copa de hefe de Bavaria. Jugando a Roblox con Asun (Spooky High School Story) Brutal helles, con un potentísimo y delicioso fondo maltoso que resulta ligero, refrescante y ultracrushable sin quedar en absoluto aguado. Ni una gota de oxidación

Review: 0,5l Bottle of Altenmünster Urig Wurzig: ABV: 4.9% vol

In a strap bottle, which looks fairly nice and in a classic style, if a little unusual in that it didn’t have a label on the front, just a small description on the neck of the bottle.

The appearance is of a nice golden yellow colour, with a white fluffy head that looks well, albeit it does die a bit, Some small carbonation going on. Not bad looking.

The smell is malty, also get a sweet piercing smell of the citrus but its all very pleasant. A nice aroma.

Also get a rustic aroma of grains and hay, an earthy kind of smell.

Got nice big mouthfalls on the initial taste, light tastes, but nothing really standing out.

Very malty at the back end. Grainy taste as well.

All very smooth, not bitter, and very easy to drink.

But nothing outstanding, a regular enough brew, nothing to get too exited about.

Overall it is a good solid session beer, very smooth, no harsh aftertastes, very crisp. Good, but nothing special, few flavours.

A light lager taste. Pretty much a regular lager. I didn’t find the spicy part that many have noted in this beer.

Nothing special, bit disappointing considering the nice looking bottle and all, but would do if thirsty!

Very refreshing beer with good flavor/taste. Very smooth indeed with no after taste which is what good beers do best.

This is an all around decent beer. Very malty, with some biscuit flavor. Goes down easy. It is refreshing and better than most German beers I've tried. Will purchase again.

Format: a solid and stumpy, embossed brown 500mL bottle with a swing-top. No label on the side, just a macro label on the neck. Looks pretty cool.

Appearance: a pretty standard amber colour with a lively carbonation. Around a finger of white head that drops to a thick cap.

Aroma: some sweet malt and grain here with just a touch of hop aroma - grass and some citrus.

Taste: pretty much follows the nose - malt and grains with some grass, not so much citrus. Clean flavours.

Aftertaste: some hop bitterness with the grain hanging about.

Mouth feel: light to moderate in body with a medium carbonation.

Overall: not a bad lager at all - better than most. Comes across as more of a pilsener if I am honest. Pretty expensive too at AU$8 per bottle.

Bottled as part of Aldi's premium German seasonal bottle beer range with swing top lids and brewed at genuine German brewers under strict brewing laws
not my thing but enjoyable enough

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 1C). Bottle 50 cl - batch 14L128A152. AROMA: sweet and grainy aromas. no hop aromas. some metallic notes. no DMS. APPEARANCE: gold color and translucid. thin white head with low retention. TASTE: low sweet grainy flavour with low to medium low bitterness that lingers. odd wet fabric flavour (maybe oxidation). PALATE: thin body with low carbonation. OVERALL: a watered down premium lager with some odd flavours maybe due to oxidation.

appearance: clear almost seltzer like bubbles not much of a head

smell: pilsner like hop smell, woody with a bit of nuts on the edges

taste: bit bitter with a watery flavor, not what I thought it would be, sharp edges

mouthfeel: very watery not much body, weak surprisingly

overall: I was a bit disappointed in this brew just not what I expected. I am not a hop head

Appearance: Pale gold; straw color; huge head

Aroma: Malty; biscuity; citrusy; almost like a Radler

Taste: Juicy, malty on start; zippy, carbonated; slightly bitter on finish; not complex, and unremarkable, but not that bad

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

Crystal clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma has earthy hops and some bread crust. Taste follows with bready malts and earthy/leafy hop bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. A bit tart and astringent on the finish, feels somehow rustic but it's not as easy drinking as I would like it to be.
