Clear deep brown-amber colour with low steady head and medium to smooth body. Nose of malt and nuts. Taste of spicy malt, ripe hops, dark grains, brown bread, joghurt and nuts. Easy to drink with a light fruity and fresh finish. Better than expected.

Bottle shared with MichaelBruch, bought in Mix Markt, Bochum. Light ruby-red in colour with low head. Nose of malt and red apples. Taste of very mild hops, low malt, hazelnuts and dark roasted grains. Seems a little bit like a Bock, but goes down easily.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours dark amber with thick off-white head. Aroma has bready caramel notes, bright fruitiness. Mouthfeel is full, quite thick. Flavor is simple, but very good - hearty bread (a little rye?) balanced with mildly floral hop flavors. Some minor hop bitterness lingering into the aftertaste. Somewhat distinct from a marzen - a bit crisper and drier with less sharpness than typical of the style.
