3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Brown clear. Malty nose, some grains, hoppy herbs, a bit of soft roast. Med bodied, well bittered. some syrupy sweets, dry coffee- like roast. An american, slight sweet caramelly, version of an alt. Clean nice. Bit too much sweets to have that superior drinkability those düsseldorfians display. Good though, but more as a brown ale or whatever.
