On tap at Fässla in Bamberg. Golden with a nice head. The aroma is fruity and hoppy with notes of straw and newly harvested hay. The flavour has nice hoppy notes with flower, fruit and newly harvested hay and a smooth touch of caramel. It’s very charming - and the atmosphere adds to the overall impression.

Bottled. A clear deep golden beer with a small and fast disappearing white head. Flowery hoppy nose with some malt. very dry with a good hopping and medium to high bitterness. Maybe the body is too much thin, but it doesn’t matter to me. Another good beer from Bamberg.
