jonas (6858) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle. Dark red, almost brown, creamy lacing white head. Melonoidin malt aroma, light grass. Medium light body, mellow mouthfeel. Light berrylike, malt base, a hint roast, grassy hops, some salt/minerals towards the finish. Berries and caramel in the aftertaste. A bit boring initially, but start unfolding after a few minutes to a quite fresh and quaffable brew.
