3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Pilgrim Hotel in Soest – Westphalia, Germany in the Pilgrim Hotel’s own glassware where it has a clear deep amber body supporting a full tall mocha like head. The faint aroma offers up vague glimpses of dark fruity esters and little else. The taste is slightly punchy with carbonation and it unveils some caramel malts, a hint of roasted malts and then growing into a mild level of prune and plum like sweet dark fruity esters. Nice flavor that went well with the meal.

Bottle @ Weihenstephaner, Freising. Clear, dark red brown appearance with a tan head. Fairly mild, a touch fruity, a bit nutty aroma. A bit toasty grainy malty, light fruity cracker flavor. Not bad but a bit disappoint=ing.

3.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a clear brown with red highlights and a thin off-white head. There wasn’t much on the nose. The taste is driven by malts, with some dried fruit and caramel characters coming through. Carbonation is pretty light. The body is solid, but this is very easy drinking. Could definitely go for another.
