NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2003
Medium chestnut colored, thin head, lots of carbonation. Earthy malt and nutty aroma, like a cross between a dunkel and an English brown. Hazelnut and roasty malt flavors are quite distinctive, and intercepted by an adequate bitterness, touch of sourness. Light bodied, not as fizzy as expected, with a lingering finish. My first of the style, and I quite enjoyed it.

It is a regular altbeer. The taste in general is dry and bitter. We could smell the hop but there is one side smocked or like caramel.. The color is red and copper and the foam is weak, average carbonation.

Draft at Brauhaus Schmitz. Pours clear nut brown with a 1-finger bone-colored head. Aroma of biscuit malt with some toasty notes. Medium body with a dry finish. Toasty malt flavor with a touch of citrus hops underneath. A touch of earthiness at the back.
