3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2006 Quite dry and bitter, yet tasty. Nice mouthfeel and good carbonation. I was happy to find a local ale from NRW Germany. I can’t see a reason not to have more of these.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(draught at the Hövels brewpub, 5.0 % ABV) Clear and slightly dark amber colour with a firm off-white foamy head. Moderately sweet malty aroma with caramel and light fruity notes plus traces of hops. Rather sweet than bitter flavour, medium to light bodied. Caramel-malty taste with dense fruity tones, moderately bitter, dry and hoppy finish. Not overwhelming but quaffable (03.05.06).

Nice amber ale, with fruity notes and pleasant dry finish. Some slight hops notes in the background. I liked it, it wasn’t heavy at all.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Caramel and tea aroma. Initial clean, smooth, slightly fat mouthfeel with candy malt coming through, then a warm bitterness. OK - decent quality - the real interest being the warm bitterness in the finish.
Overall, a decent beer but nothing spectaular.

pale brown color, thin foamy head, very cheap to cal it bitterbier with the use of hop extracs. its not easy to make beer bitter with only natural ingrediens, but not inpossible, they say its a "bier-spezialitat" so do you best!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2012 Bottle. OK hop aroma. Grey chestnut colour. Big stable head, leaving lace. OK mouthfeel, seemingly due to the alcohol. Medium bitterness. Not that flavourful, it is mostly alcohol and bitterness. 6 3 6 4 10
Draught. Caramelly aroma, hint of spicy hops. Clear dark brown colour. Small white head. The flavour is nicely caramelly with a dusty note. Also a bit of spicy hop in the flavour. Nothing extraordinary, but good. 6 3 6 3 15

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear dark amber with a medium off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma of floral hops and a bit of malt. Very lively carbonation. The flavor is delicate with traces of roasted malt, caramel, citrus and bitter hops. The finish is indeed bitter, as the name promises. Pleasant palate, although the whole body seems a tad bit watery.
