3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Hofbräu zum Rathaus, Vienna.
Dark copper body, with a big, creamy, lacing, light beige head.
Aroma of toast, caramel, dark bread, some dark fruits, some honey.
Tastes of caramel, honey, toast, grains, some herbs, slight cardboard.
Medium, a bit oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes grainy, bready, medium toasty, a bit caramelic.
Good. The nose is nice, with enjoyable toasty notes. Taste is OK, but a bit flat and slightly too sweet for me. Overall an OK style examples, while I’ve had better ones.
