Tap at BKL. I think they have changed the Kegs because mine was really nice. Amber body with white head. Wonderful aroma of pine, citrus and Aroma hops. Taste is malty sweet and fruity. Aftertaste is medium bitter with some sweetness. Liked this very much.

I just had this beer at Braukunst Live 2014 in Munich. I made a list of the potential best beers and was looking forward to it. What a dissapointment! One of the worst beers ever. Papery and musty smell. No problem with palate or appearance- Oxidixed bitter taste. I had great beers before on the same day and also after. I am sure it is a good beer based on the reviews, but this keg tasted like a 12 month old imperial IPA.

Very good beer that has a huge aroma of citrus, pine, resin, nice medium body. Slightly creamy actually. Big foamy tiny bubled head with brussels lacing. Very bitter and astringent yet still some sweetness and caramel in the aroma. Very good beer.
