4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Brauerei Eichhorn, Nov. 2012: Bronze with golden highlights. Creamy and persistent cap of clingy meringue. Clean, airy, expressively malty nose teems with melanoidins, hazelnut, browned toffee, nuts, earthy cocoa, and a vibrant "green" hoppiness. Underlying tropical fruitiness. Firm, snug carbonation. Tease of estery fruitiness yields to wonderfully crisp, toffee-kissed Munich and a savory medley of fresh baguette and creamed coffee. Splash of licorice underscores the maltiness with deft restraint. Pronounced bite of yeast and minerals accentuates the seductively juicy malt bill. Hops pack plenty of luster, as well. Exceptionally succulent florals artfully mirror the fat and juicy melanoidins. Chewy, mouth-filing dextrins and a bitter edge of pumpernickel bread saturate the dry, cleanly attenuated finish. A flawless example devoid of the boring cola dullness, etc. An amazingly clean, quaffable, and intricate version.

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.
