Served in a ceramic mug with a soft white head. A touch of hops in the flavor and a mineral character to the taste. Well balanced with a nice hop presence.

Draught at brew pub in Bamberg several times, but most recently in November 2012, when it was a diacetyl bomb and difficult to finish. Thankfully a walk to the nearby Special keller and the excellent offerings there, restored my appetite for Bamberg’s beers.
