Oldmanriver (53) - Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2014
Had at Taps in Atlanta,Ga. Copper light brown color. Complex malt character. Due to rye and caramel malts. Medium to full body. With an odd mixture of a simotanious sweet malt and bitter hop finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at piggery. Prune and grapefruity. Tart. Super fruity. Tastes like it is a medicine that will make you poo a lot the next day. So what I'm saying is it isn't bad
