3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the brewpub. Clear nut brown, small head. Lightly roasty nose. Sweetish with much cleaner mouthfeel than their zwickel. The flavours doesn’t come out as well as in the unfiltered version. Slight metallic flavour. The perfumy roastiness is here restrained, Even though the two spring from the same base beer the different is vast from a consumer’s point of view.

500ml bottle from trade with Koelschtrinker - thanks!
Rich brown, fizzy head. Nutty, woody malty aroma. Raw grainy taste - some husks. Fizzy at first, but softer later. Slightly sticky but also a bit thin (the old bottom-fermented feel).
