Bottle shared with McTapps. Interesting one with a taste, look and smell between an ale and a bock. Hops in the nose is great but no carbo makes it a bit dull.

Bottle bought as "Zimbus Drachenblut - das Ritterbier". deep amber-brown in colour with absolutely no head and no carbonation. Looks like an Ale. Taste of nuts, rich malt, mild hops and roasted grains. Easy to drink and it comes very close to an Ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft at St Georgen Brau in Buttenheim
clear amber-honey body with a small white head. clean nose with rich toffee, nuts, sweet caramel syrup and touches of cooked corn; light to medium mineral levels; clean yeast presence in the nose. nutty, toasty, cracker-like, a bit powdery, sweet, sticky, I could be convinced it was somewhere between heller and dunkler bock, both from the sweetness and the mild touch of ethanol. carbonation is nicely frothy and round and the malt is mostly smooth and the sweetness level well-suited for the body.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into lager glass from bottle picked up in mixed Bavarian case. Clear red/amber colour with beige, frothy two-finger head. Roasted malts in the aroma mixed with a hint of dark fruit combined with some earthy and grainy hoppiness. Light body and medium carbonation. some maltiness at the beginning turning into some hoppy, slightly bitterness in the aftertaste. Tastes like it looks but a little bit bitter for a märzen beer.
