I drank this beer tonight in Ayinger. The appearance of this beer is a nice copper-orange-red color with an average foam and carbonation. The taste is dry with a nice note of caramel and malty. It is a good drink.

Bottle to frozen mug in Chaostheorie Berlin. Big beige foam. A little old, some cardboard, old malt and a wee toasty in the nose, mild malty bitterness in the mouth. Medium body, mild bitter finish. Frozen ceramic mug didn’t do good to an old bottle to begin with.
