3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought in Bamberg.
Clear, golden yellow color with fine, thick white head. Strong aroma of hops and fruit, with lots of malt as well. Very nice nose. Flavor of hops first, than with fruity taste and decent malt, with a hint of thick sweetness. Finish first hoppy, then malt, with the bitterness lingering as well. Perfectly balanced beer. Light, but enough malt to satisfy. An excellent beer, and the bottled is almost as good as the draft version.
