Fraca no aroma, essa breja tem paladar de malte, fermento e cravo. Não impressiona muito, mas tem boa drinkability.

mdachi (35) - Paderborn, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2007
Poured from a 33cl bottle. Aroma: overall heavy, a little alcoholic, then some fruits. Appearance: Gold with little haze from yeast depot, stable white head. Flavor and Palate: It was slightly metallic (like blood), after this medium bitter an less sweet and fruity. Overall too light and thin for my expectation, hence something dissatisfying.
