Bottle at home from my European secret Santa, cheers!
slightly yoghurty mango lassi aroma. Hazy dark amber with offwhite lacing. Fairly pithy bitterness balanced by sweet caramalt and fruity peel. Good level of bitterness but not enough hop loveliness for me.

Leicht trübes bernsteinfarbenes IPA mit wenig weißem Schaum. Geruch leicht hopfig fruchtig, wenig exotische Früchte. Geschmack angenehm fruchtig hopfig, wenig bitter, etwas harzig, lecker!

heavy (2161) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 15, 2014
Jun ’14. A 0.33 l bottle kindly given away by Kaltenecker crew when we met in Zagreb, thanks guys! It poured hazy caramel-copper body with really tiny head. Straightforward orange hop aroma rounded by biscuit malt, typical but fine. Flavor was bitter, herbal with pleasant fruity and caramel malty counterpart. Touch of darker malt like raisins. Medium bodied with longer biscuit and bitter herbal finish. Might have been a bit less bitter than typical style example. Simple, but effective, a pleasant IPA, brewmasters didn’t want to take any chances here, for good.

Pours a slightly hazy dark amber/light brown color, topped with a very decent beige colored head. Very mild aroma, malty, some caramel and lots of biscuity notes. Slightly buttery. Nice lacing. Starts sweet, pleasant caramel and biscuity notes. No real bitterness in the finish. Slightly flat, but very drinkable and tasty.

bottle, thanks mowbeer. sampled among 4 other kaltenecker beers and i found this one the least impressive. amber, clear with decent lacing; aroma of glazed doughnuts; modest bitterness, pine, nougat; everything seems strangely out of kilter
