The first things I noticed about this beer were its exceptional clarity and bronze color. As I raised the glass to take the first sip, the overwhelmingly malty aroma struck me. This beer has good mouthfeel and roasted malt taste. I did not notice any prominent hoppiness in the aroma or finish. Perhaps it was overpowered by the malt (or my dinner)? Drank it after a hefe and during a meal of brauenwurst & kraut, so I might need to try it again on its own.

Bottle was a gift from Humulus et Fermentum, Heisdorf. Thank you! Pours clear copper brown with huge head. Nose is grainy and floral, taste is caramel sweetness nicely balanced by hoppy bitterness. Sweet finish, bitter aftertaste. Full mouthfeel, low carbonation. Nice, but nothing special, a bit bland.

rjplumer (663) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Light sweet grain aroma. Body is a clear mild copper with a modest one finger thick head. Has a mild bitter bite. Sweet caramel on the back end of the palate. Feels light but is bold and feels warm going down.
