Draught at Lemkes am Schloss, the former Luisen-Bräu. Fruity aroma with a spicy hoppiness. Cloudy caramel colour. Stable, bubbly light brown head. The flavour is slightly sweet with a good aroma hoppiness, spicy and nice. High carbonation. Finishes with a slightly rough bitterness and not very clean.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Diplomatic honeyed malts approach minty hops and take them to a quiet conclusion in this balanced but boring Zwickelbier.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam tops the misty dark golden.
-Bitterness is too low for my liking, especially since the malts or sugars don’t even attempt to fill the void in the aftertaste.
-Dusty edges are found.
-This is quaffable, but eminently forgettable.
-Natural carbonation might have served this flavor profile better.

On tap at the Hackescher Markt location.

Fin (7244) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2013
Had this at Brauhaus Lemke am Hackescher Markt, Mitte, Berlin, Germany Friday 15th November 2013 Pours dark gold only a very slight haze looks good. In the mouth this is malty but full flavoured, good temperature, sweetish with a bitterness that follows. quite clean tasting, soft in mouth bit of orange in aftertaste. Good stuff.
