The color is dark, red-brown and the head is huge and nice. The aroma has notes of grain, syrup and roasted malt. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of caramel, grain, light citrus and in the long, dry and slightly bitter finish I also find hints of coffee.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask (Bayerische Anstich) at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear nut brown, small head. Roasty and nutty with a touch of licorice. medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. There’s grass and licorice and aniseed as well as butter, and the malt feels vital and ful of life. fairly low bitterness. A well balanced beer that may lack that extra something that is hard to define.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Caramel malts aroma, German hops but not as veggie/skunky in most German beers. Brown color, beige head, fair lace. Starts easy, light sweet and caramel. But then it has a bite. Quite hoppy bitter and herbal. Long lasty finish. Biting in my tongue at the front and sticky in the back.
