"Slightly lighter and slightly sweeter and prunier than the sticker. Almost as good, but leaves juuuust a bit less of an impression as the layers of malt complexity are ever so slightly replaced with more floral (but still light) hoppiness."

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at Zum Uerige in Dusseldorf. Clear red-brown with a nice bubbly-cream head. Smooth, slightly metallic and dry. Malty, and the metallic taste is transient. This was pretty reasonable stuff. Very lightly roasted malt aroma combined with hops.
