Bottle. Pours clear amber-redish colour with small light brown head, that quickly sits into a nice circle. Intensive aroma of caramel, brown sugar, toasted malts, toffee. Moderate bitter taste and aftertaste. Medium to full body, dry/watery texture and lively carbonation.

Bottle from REWE. Surprisingly premium priced in the supermarket, so I was expecting a lot more. I paid €1.75/bottle, most bottles in a supermarket are under €1). Pleasant enough,hows color of "red blonde), long lingering on the tongue. Very low carbonation, no lacing. Good enough but not good enough to bein my regular rotation.

Looks about light brown, crystal clear and a beautiful copper shade visible from the top. Almost no head, only a thin ring around the glass. Flavors include lots of caramel malts and some biscuit notes. Gentle hoppiness in the finish. Light palate and low carbonation. I kind of like it. Sure it has mass production characteristics, but still I find it pretty enjoyable.

rondphoto (3976) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 20, 2016
bottle @ Kaufland market / Schwaebisch Gmuend Germany --- Clear ambergris color, off-white head, lace streaks. Taste is malt with a light infusion of oak with very light fizz and, then, a trace of hops for the finish. This has some body, but very little flavor. I won’t have another.

Can’t complain about the head and the color is a nice clear redbrown. The body is quite light but it’s not watery, rather easily drinkable. A wooden taste is clearly noticeable and very pleasant. I found this a very good option when the alternatives were only standard industry pilseners.
