4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is where it all started for me, after cheaply done lager almost made me swear off beer.
The lovely brown colour, the big foamy head, the smell of fruits and coffee, the sweet and bitter taste of all before mentioned and the subtle bite of alcohol transported by this beers full body - it?s just really, really good. A beer to be remembered by.
Bottle bought at Spar Mariagrün/Graz.
