3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (REWE, Buttenheim): Clear, ruby-amber coloured, fluffy off-white head with a little lace; dryish roasty nose with a delicate sweetish-caramelly background, a subtle fruitiness underneath; first sweet, then bitter flavour, pretty light bodied, but soft; slightly lingering dryish roasty and dark-malty finish. Chapeau! Unexpected quality from a brewer, who is not known for excellent brews.....
