OK I spose. A little watery and some weird fruitiness clashing with the dark malts I thought. Quite nice though I guess... Um...

Clear red brown with a beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel and light roasted malt. Flavor is moderate sweet. There is not enough roasted malt and maybe because of this it isn’t dry enough and too sweet. 040111

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Biggish coarseish brown head. Deep dark red body. Vague papery mealy aroma. Dry-sweet wild berries and paper taste with faint roasty notes. Mild mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dry earthy papery aftertaste with mealy notes. Incredibly low on taste. A real disappointment. (0.5l bottle from Schönefeld Airport, Berlin. Label says Schultheiss/BK, and 5.4%.)
