3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank twice during Feb 2013 in the Dickenstr/rail arches outlet while in Berlin.
Impressed, a deep reddy brown body with a full and lasting white head of foam.
Malts foremost in the aroma and taste: fairly sweet, caramel and molasses rule here.
Body depth was fine: could have been thicker and ’meatier’ I suppose, but this is a lager/pilsner based beer and that should be remembered when comparing and rating/reviewing beers.
By far the best of the four brews on offer during my visits: I do have a sweet tooth though, so this suited my tastes nicely.

Draught at the Hackescher Markt location. Poured a hazy radk red body with a small off white head. Light caramelly nose. A nicely sweet taste, Woody, perfumey and polleny. Slightly bready, eggy. Some bitter herbal hopiness, some yeastiness that clashes with the rest. Bitter aftertaste too. Got better as it warmed.
