COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark ruby red, with an orangey fruity malt character. The spicy, resinous, lemony Goldings absolutely sing through the beer combining beautifully with the malt, and the bitterness is powerful and lasting, punching through the residual sweetness.

Borefts Beer Festival 3. Clear brown beer, residual white head. Dry palate. A little caramel malt. Lots of bitter hops. Why there is some floralness there isn’t to much hop fruit. Dry finish with a long bitter linger. Ok but it’s too skewed towards bitterness for me.

Koelschtrinker (11054) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 18, 2011
Wenig intensiver aber interessanter Karamellantrunk mit zarten Hopfennoten. Die Süße ist ebenfalls gelungen und gering, harmonisch, etwas Frucht. Stimmig! /12/12/12//12
