Bottle. Pours clear amber, small off-white head, decent lacing. Aroma is bready, caramel, some pine and grass. Flavor is light plus sweet, light bitter, bready and caramel malts, light citrus. Medium body, a hint of acidity. Not bad, but I imagine that this was not the freshest sampling.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml. bottle. Fairly fresh. It pours a lightly hazed orange color with a small but creamy white head. The aroma is full with lightly toasted bread and honeysuckle. Some malty sweetness. The flavor is the same. Toasted bread is pretty strong up front with some hints of floral hops. Not much else going on. A bit dull on the palate. Light honey like sweetness, but mostly just toasted bread. Very clean, yet unremarkable.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2015 Look; off white head and orange-golden near clear body. Aroma; caramel, malts, light grass, orange peels. Taste; good malts, grass, soft caramel, notes of orange peels, wet hops, leading to a finish with slightly roasted malts and grassy hops. Normal texture and carbonation. Completely uncomplicated, rather good actually. [50cl brown bottle 5.2%abv BB30-10-2015 Greetings to Bierothek in Bamberg DE, T@Ferie2015]
- - - Also tasted vom Fass: Off white head, dark body, possibly hazy amber. Aroma of malts, brown sugar, malted candies, appleish hops, some dough. Tastes brown sugar malts, apple peels, strawberry, vanished huckleberries, sourgrass, lemon note, hops - leading to a fruity finish in hops and smooth malts. Ok body, soft, straight and clean. Almost as a polotmavy. Good brew. [50cl 4.9%abv vom Faß in ceramic mug @ Alt-Ringlein Bamberg T@Ferie2015]

Maybe one of the best German beers. And I’ll taste many of them. You have to go to Bamberg for it, but that’s no punishment.
