(Bottle 50 cl) Clear brown with a reddish hue and a fine, creamy head. Lightly roasted malty with notes of caramel. But a sharp bitterness dominates this - almost too overpoweringly bitter. 080303

Elegant aroma, subtle hops with the caramel. It’s served too cold, the mouthfeel is a bit too dry and the bitterness too high, at the end.

From wooden cask, at the bräuhaus, 2005-04-04, 7-5-7-4-14=37
Beautiful dark amber color; creamy head. Malty aroma, with some malt; later (the temperature...) it develops a very nice (but quite light) hop note. Maltier example than others in Düsseldorf, with loads of caramel, very strong bitterness, partially aromatic. Very strong taste, powerful brew. Less hoppy than the Zum Schlüssel.
