Clear brown color, short off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, some hop, bit toasty. Slight sweet taste, cookie, caramel malt, slight bitter. Not brilliant, but probably one of the better altbeers.

Bottle from a great trade with Koelschtrinker (thanks!). Clear brown with a beige head. Lovely aroma of toasty, caramelly malts, some dark fruitiness, hops and a hint of dark chocolate. Nice sweetish caramel malts flavor with some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied.

Bottle. Sweet, the smell of bread and brown cookies. A small white frothy head which is mostly diminishing. The body is orange-red. The beer starts light bitter and is later on even more bitter. The duration is average. On the palate the beer has a light to medium body, a soft carbonation and a very dry texture. Very refreshing

[on tap at brewpub]
Very nice toasted malt aroma with some noble hops--a little dusty, though. Clear light brown with lacy white top and lasting flanel blanket. Quite ascertive bitterness in front of a sort of sour/young flavour. Some toastiness and weak hops flavour as well. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the brewpub. Clear amber, small creamy head. Pungent, almost aggresive fruity nose leaning towards plums and metal. Dryish with fairly clean mouthfeel. Lightly spritzy, grassy and ashy with some minerals and salty finish. A good altbier with a pleasant depth of flavours.

Intensely lacy clear red measure capped with snowy foam. Bitterly dry and hoppy mit und touch of metallic orange fruitiness. Fresh and fruity at first with a biting hoppiness and bready afters that bitter even more in combination with food. Especially if it’s grossmutter’s gobstopper-sour raw herring special.
