4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
2x50cl bb03/2017, Maruhn, inter festas & post quem. - Bref: the best liquid translation of a freshly baked Bauernbrot with crispy brown crust, for those in the know. - Earthy nose of mahogani leavened bread crust, grainy and plumsweet, mildly yeasty. Farmyard courtyards after rain. Rich and smooth, yet velvet-pillowy mouthfeel perfected for sessionability. Woody tannins draped over brown bread. A herbal hop touch woven in earlier that just for a finishing tang, like polished furniture slowly adapting to wood cabin interior. A yeasty and hop herbal finish to seal the deal and cap the next 50cl for less than €1/50cl. Superbly balanced.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks Žina for sharing this with us! Poured a dark coppery red body with a tan head. Very, overly meaty malty, sweetish aroma. Taste... ooof, some genuinely nice nutty notes are balancing light tartness and yeastiness in this dry malt bomb. This was so damn messy, but shows promise. Hope to rerate it some day!
