3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Braustelle, Koln, Germany, Friday 28th March 2014 Dark amber (but a very tricky light, quite gloomy) so cannot be certain of colour. Very much like a UK ESB but with a nice German malty profile, not sure of the hops either but perhaps these are also German. Fruity with a good malty ’soreen’ bite along with a steely enduring but far from harsh bitterness. A very tasty decent Alt. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.8
