This traditional Roggenbier has strong notes of toasted bread and spice with hints of banana and caramel on the nose. On your first sip, spicy clove and banana dominate, but are then soothed with a bready malt sweetness.

Mild treacle and biscuit nose. Clear tea, medium yellow head. Dry, bread crust, subtle banana notes. Flavor falls a little flat. To be fair, I rated this when I had a cold. However, in my frustrated attempts to find any kind of flavor or aroma, I stumbled on a quick to sharpen my sense of taste and smell. I ate a mix of a little horseradish and mustard which temporarily restored my senses, long enough to evaluate the beer. The beer was still relatively weak.
