Bügelverschlußflasche: Hazy, light amber coloured, stable lacy off-white head; sweetish-fruity and toasted-malty aroma with some shy hoppy influences; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, quite soft MF; a light alcoholic trace in the sweet-fruity and caramelly finish. Not bad, but a bit too sweet........

Toasty malty taste with yeasty and herbal notes; sweet-bitter, toasty and slightly fruity finish with a very light hops-character. Decent unfiltered Dunkel (07.07.08).

Swing-top bottle. Toffee malt aroma. Reddish brown color with minimal head. Toffee malt and grass hops flavor. Nicely made - not especially exciting though.
