  • Counter Weight Brewing Fest Bier
    rated 4.1 2 days ago

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 10

    Lite aroma ..... Grass, lemon, a sour note of sorts. Clear medium copper body topped with a moderate white head with slight retention and good lace. Nice mouth well carbonated, tingly, slick and lite bodied. Really tasty the malt predominates and is biscuity. The hops are, I think, noble and perfectly balanced. Lighter than a Marzen with a clean and slightly sweet finish. Exceptionally drinkable. Alcohol very well masked. I feel bad downgrading the appearance this is really a delightful beer.

    Mild nose of biscuit with hints of both citrus and resin hops. Surprisingly clear pale yellow body for an unfiltered Brew tapped by a decent Whitehead that has minimal retention that leaves a nice skim coat. The carbonation is very tingly the mouth is slightly slick medium-bodied and very clean. Lemon and grass in the mouth bittering towards the end somewhat astringent perhaps too much so. The finish is very short and very clean.

    Nice pils nose, grassy meadow with some violet and lemon and hints of ground white peppercorn. Crystal clear light gold body topped with a big head with retention and some foamy lace. Medium bodied slightly slick, slightly creamy. Flavor follows the nose crisp with slight sugar cookie and a bit of tartness on the finish which is long, drying, and clean.

    Cardamom, bubblegum, clove, citrus peel on the nose. Pours a foggy gold/copper body with good white head and moderate lace. Mouth is well carbonated but a touch thin. Flavor is all bubble gum and clove perhaps lacking in the subtlety of a finer hefe. Pretty good attempt for an American Brewer.

    Bread and pasture and a hint of lavender in the nose. Pale copper body with minimal head and no lace. Mouth is medium bodied slightly creamy with minimal carbonation. Very drinkable... Clean taste biscuit, bright and sweetish, hops slightly floral and a bit of bittering..... Perfectly balanced.
