3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber pour covered by a light off-white head. Rather alcoholic, candied malts and earthy, caramelly aromatic components. Almost woody in mouth with an interesting concentration on maple-like sweetness that takes a sugary toffee turn towards the finish. Well, its aroma is enticing enough, but the palate feels too small for its size, thin-medium bodied at most and with a rather inefficient carbonation. Earthy, rooty, caramel notes feel simpler than they might be in those overly tight clothings.

Another superstrong lager, you know them by the ..ator name. The alcohol is shining through here, though there is a fine maltiness that is overpowered.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate:
Bottle at RBESG. Translucent chestnut colour with a pretty well behaved head. Tasty and clean with plenty of alcohol showing but it really works unlike a lot of German bottled beers. Malty and fruity with some delicate hoppage way down underneath. Luxurious mouthfeel. Very good stuff.
