3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is my second bottle, pouring a deep brown (with some reddish hues), nice fluffy head fading to half finger deep skin.Moderate lacing on the glass. Light but active carbonation throughout. Strong, mellow flavor, not over powering, just a hint of bitterness on the back of the tongue after swallowing. A nice beer for a winter’s day, accompanied with some good german sausage and cheese.

Die Schaumkrone hält mittelmäßig. Geschmacklich ist es röstmalzig, malzig und hopfig, leicht röst-alkoholisch. Insgesamt ok, aber nochmal muss ich es auch nicht haben.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
July 2010: 500ml Brown bottle obtained from ’Beers of Europe’ here in the UK.
The beer was poured into pint sleeve glass.
Impressive looking beer, deep, dark ruby red in colour, clear and clean. The cream coloured head that sat on top managed to stay for most of the tasting, but left no lacing on the glass.
Very little, if any aroma, I do struggle with most lager/pilsner based beers to find any real smell on most occasions. There were hints of malts and traces of molasses if I put my nose into the glass as the beer warmed, but initially there seemed to be nothing.
The taste was sharp, crisp and more malt than hop, fairly well carbonated and ’alive’ with an almost fizzy mouthfeel.
Too be fair, it is one of the better beers of this style I’ve had, the alcohol content helping to appease me and giving it a bit of body and depth: others within this style have failed to do that.
