2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ 16. Internationales Berliner Bierfestival. Pours a clear amber-brown with a small off-white head. Sweetish malty-hoppy aroma with a metallic overtone. Flavour is sweetish, fruity and malty with a bit of hops. Metallic and cereal note as it warms. Malty finish, almost grainy, but not quite. Dry lingering grassy note. Overall okay, though a little on the sweet side. 03.08.12.
