Four-pack shared with MichaelBruch. Looks like a dark Weizen; pale, dark gold in colour, very steady and creamy head. Though I don’t like Weizen a lot, this beer was just delicious. Taste of sweet yeast, fresh pepper and ginger, rich malt and warm autumn days. Would drink it again every time.

Hazed amber pour with a khaki head. Bread and toasted malt aromas with a mild fruity ester quality. A bit of water, and perhaps some toffee and yeast. The sweetness is the main characteristic of the flavor as well. A bit of bread and toffee, light fruity esters, and some water. Mild yeast notes and faint floral hops.

(on tap) Cloudy mahogany with good head. Subtle pleasant aroma: malt, toffee, hints of grass. Medium body and carbonation. Foretaste has notes of toffee with a long surprising bitter finish with perhaps hints of coffee-like bitterness. Overall an unusual but pleasant beer.

Cloudy amber-brown dirt-color with thin white head. Warm caramel smell, nothing more. If the aroma spectrum was wider it was exactly what I like. Tastes like alt-brown beer but stronger. Bitter after-taste. Feels somewhat watery.
