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.

Pours attractive dark chestnut with foamy beige head. Caramel, bread crusts and some herbal vegetation notes on the nose. Medium bodied and carbonation spot on, building bitterness, really fresh lemony hop snap in the middle well balanced by malt. Very decent alt

MarkoNm (536) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 10, 2014
Pours a clear light brown color with slight coppery undertone. The head is generous foamy and white. The aroma is very mild - some malts along with fruits. Perhaps there’s little caramel too. The taste is also mild and slightly sweet, finishing with nice little bitterness. A decent one again.
