2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the brauhaus in Durlach
Cloudy brown color. Compact head. Mild aroma of roasted malt. Overly carbonated, it has an ordinary body strength, dry roasted malt flavor, dusty mouthfeel, some yeast as usual at Vogel’s, and a tad too bitter final. Porter? Uh!
