3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 draft at Brauerei Eichhorn in Forchheim. soft and toasty nose presents munich malt cracker and baked cookie goodness with a sweet touch of toffee candies and a rustic, slightly-chalky yeast with faint metallic touches. sweet with a slick texture on the approach, frothy carbonation and solid crispness to the body, tempered somewhat by the sweet toast / nut character of the dark malt. endlessly enjoyable.
