4/10/16 bottle at home. Great look and smell. Splendid head. Biscuity and malty but not altogether in a nice way. Bit too dry on the palate ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sound67 (702) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle, 500ml. *** Colour: Deep, reddish, clear amber. Big off-white head. *** Nose: Fruity and malty aroma, with a hint of grass and herbs. *** Mouthfeel: Medum boy, mildly creamy. St carbontion. *** Taste: Mildly sweetish start with redcurrant and biscuit malt. Nice balance with floral hops, which grow stringer towards the middle. Fruity notes disappear only to return in the modestly bitter finish. Long, malty and floral aftertaste. *** Impressions: A very smooth, beautifully balanced premium bitter, thus eminently drinkable. Not the most characterful of its kind, but its red berries are certainly very appealing.
