Many thanks for this swing-top bottle to kevnic2008. Piana spora nawet trwala, kolor bursztynowy, bez osadu. Karmelowe i dobrze zbalansowane piwo z przeplatajaca sie goryczka i karmelem. Slodowosc srednia, nieco korzenne.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,5 l swingtop bottle from P&M Getränke, bottled on 5/3/2015. Clear, light amber with a medium-sized, foamy and fine pored, stable, white head. Pleasant but not that intense aroma of caramel, nuts, molasses and cereals. Sweetish taste of caramel, nuts and cereals with a long, medium bitter and slightly metallic finish. Thin to medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Not quite what I expected, had better memories of it. It is somewhat pleasant and nice, but at the same time anaemic and boring. Very disappointing and far away from Uerige.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle received in the local for local euroswap. Thank you Erzengel! Pours clear deep golden brown with a frothy offwhite head that leaves some trace and lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty, slightly fruity, slightly floral and slightly earthy with dark bread, caramel, moist soil, hay, plums, red berries and lemon peal. Taste is bitter, floral, herbal and earthy with dark bread, dandelion stems, St. John’s wort, moist soil, hay, minerals, orange peal and hints of iron. Mouthfeel is soft, slightly astringent, tiny watery and light to medium bodied. Finish is bitter with dark bread, moist soil, hay, dandelions, minerals and orange peal. I quite enjoyed this one. Nice malt profile, pleasant bitterness, nice floral and earthy hops and a soft very pleasant mouthfeel adding to the drinkablility. Yum!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has a huge, froth, bubbly head, with a clear brown color, in which ember hints shine through.
Smells of fresh, skunky yeast with sweeter, cane sugary, notes of malt, as well as rustic bread.
Tastes much dryer, and more balanced than the aromas revealed. Starts bready, accompanied by semi-dry, slightly bitter hops, which stay in the background though, to allow the malts to unfold in all its beauty. Drinks very smooth and turns a little more sweeter, in a toffeish way, without loosing its bready, slightly toasted foundation. Finishes crisp, very balanced, with hops and malts standing in perfect balance to each other.
