Zlotta (214) - Bonn, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2015
0,5 l bottle from Vormann Brauerei. Clear, dark amber with a small, quickly diminishing, soapy, white head. Interesting aroma of fermented grapes, black currant and hints of caramel and roasted malts. Sourish taste of fermented grapes, black currant and hints of lemon. Long, tart finish. Thin body, low carbonation, fizzy mouthfeel, a bit watery. Very interesting, refreshing beer that lacks a bit of taste. Good palate cleanser when eating greasy dishes.
