(Bottle 100 cl) Courtesy of MoritzF. Pours a beautiful, warm, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head leaving a neat lacework. Sweetish, lightly nutty aroma.

Koelschtrinker (14078) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 9, 2011
Das Latzenbier startet malzig und erreicht schnell den röstmalzigen Status. Dahinter ist das Bier etwas bitter, später tritt dies deutlicher hervor. Würziger Mittelteil, bereits hier ist die Bitterkeit fast DAS Merkmal des Bieres. Etwas fruchtig. Gut, aber nicht super. Test vom 16.11.2007, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 9,10,11,12,11,11 - 10,80
