Deep brown with a bubbling beige-brown head. Molasses and caramel malts on the nose. Medium body with just a touch of carbonation, smooth and silky in the mouth. Toffee, molasses, caramel, and a bit smoky. Rye and a bit of sweetness left behind. Very nice deep malty altbier.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl flip-top bottle bought in Germany. Opened very lively, poured deep red-amber with a thick yeasty-looking head. Malty and floral aroma. Nutty and slightly chocolatey body with hints of raisins, it’s thinner bodied than the flavour initially made me expect, though. Bitter-sweet finish. A very pleasant German equivalent to a British best bitter, or thereabouts.

Excellent one. After so many pilsner in Germany I finally find a regio where I can have good beers I like.
