3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to motelpogo and loni for this one, who thought of me in my beer exile in Australia. Red-brown, clear, nice creamy off-white head. Big nutty malt smell, like freshly baked bread. Smell is as malty as a bock. Taste is quite straightforward - salty, chewy brown bread crusts - but with a surprising level of hop flavour. You can’t taste the hops in themselves that much but they’re definitely there, contributing dryness more than anything else. Very long, nutty, malteser finish with a 25-30IBU sort of bitterness.This reminded me of Mikes Mild strangely enough - big nutty malt taste but dry and light. Simple but wholesome beer.

Sampled draught at Berliner Bier-Festival.
Orange-brown with vague cellary aroma. Clean and rather dry with some salt and medium bitterness.

Looks brown, poor head. Ugly. Taste pretty malty and sweet. Dark bread flavours apart of the sweetness. Finish malty and aftertaste, too. Medium body. If you like roasted malt ...

this was recommended to me at the fabulous ambrosetti biershop in berlin. not a dunkel at all, much more like an alt. very full burnt taste becoes sweeter and caramel and then gets swamped by crisp, fresh Doldenhops. full burnt hay aroma. looks very brown. plenty of trail mix in there, as eczematic would say. a truly unique beer

Citrusaroma. A bit tart. Fairly complex taste with chocolate, citrus and some hopbitterness. Thinnish and a bit skunky aftertaste.
