Draught at Seehas restaurant in Konstanz. Beautiful amber (surprisingly pale) beer with a great nicely lasting head. Perfectly balanced. Very interesting. A lot going on in this one. Extremely pleasant. Thanks Quack-Duck!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly smoky, forested nutmeat, caramel, sharp sourdough bread, sweet maple. Wow, subtle flavors, well intertwined. Head dies pretty quickly and this does have a tinge of sourness. I like that, some won’t. Not too sweet; has the other ranges of flavors to compensate! Aroma is very good, slight spice, lots of brown sugar and forest elements. Lovely reddish color. Ruppaner is a good brewery! Thanks Stefan!

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Into the glass pours a dark amber beer with a powerful head. The beer smells hoppy spicy, very tender roasted malt.Starts caramel malty, with subtle roasted flavor. Also, the aftertaste is roasty caramel, but here comes the hop bitterness something better. To the center part, it remains pleasantly caramel, hop bitterness is always concise, giving the beer a little more punch.
