2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Brauerei Hennemann Sambach, May. 2013 Coppery golden. Broken white head. Lemon, apricot and toasted poundcake exude beneath the strong presence of diacetyl. Soft, fuzzy pinpricks of carbonation. Lusciously soft and malty with oodles of poundcake and a toasted bread sweetness. Pleasant nuttiness coincides with toasty hay suggestions. Not a whole lot of definition to the malt, however, as it takes on a grainy, charred breadcrust astringency. Scant hops fail to inspire as they quickly become monotonous in their one-dimensionality. Spent tea-leaf dullness overwhelms the distant aniseed flavors. Diacetyl taints the brightness with a cheese rind putridness. Malt supplies the sweetish finish with beefy weight, complemented by an almond skin sharpness and creamed coffee underpinnings. I’ve been happy with a couple of their other beers, e.g. Sommergold and Zwicklbier Naturtrüb, and there seems to be a decently made beer beneath the diacetyl taint, but it’s nonetheless very difficult to enjoy.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
draft at Hennemann in Sambach. strong diacetyl aroma with some charred / burnt nuts and toffee, turning to foul butterscotch after only a few sniffs. the toffee-ish undertones are nice enough and I can see what this beer should be without the diacetyl fault. body is round and filling in the mouth, carbonation is soft, malt is sticky sweet. bad enough shape that they should not be serving it.

The color is beautiful, intense bronze/orange with a creamy head, and the aroma is mild, malty and slightly fruity. The flavoru has a light sweetness and notes of light butterscotch, malt, fruit, straw, citrus, and the finish is dry and slightly bitter. It’s a delicious one...
