3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft at the brewery in Amberg. hazed toffee brown body with a rich tan head. nose of mild toasted grain, yeast must and light touches of smoke, yes, smoke, to go with the nutty, caramelly and toasty malt. that all sounds great but together it’s all quite simple and straightforward and not very inspiring. syrupy late and chewy throughout with medium hop bitterness.
