3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A copperbrown beer with an almost big and blond head. Aroma of malts and bread, nuts, some syrup like sweetness, also some aromatic berries. Taste is smooth and malty, balanced sweetness, that slightly dry, bread and some nuts. Medium bodied, very smooth carbonation, very enjoyable. Simple beer, but there are still enough of nuancees, almost velvety like drinkability gives to the special points, the great balance as always with Weltenburger.
