2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle 9 C.
S: malty, danish raybread - nice tones for the nose.
A: gold colour, high creamy head - so far promising!
F: dry, sourbitter, with a wee hunny swetness - mmm not a good combination.
ES: the sour after bitterness clings on...
I thought that Kaltenberg should be one of the better Oktober beers?

Bottle, thanks OleR.
Small head, golden beer.
A fairly malty and strong lager, but it does not distinguish itself in any way. You feel they have gone for the cheapest ingredients.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml bottle. A thin layer of foam over a crystal clear, low carbonated, pilsner golden body. Grain, stale bread and dough in the aroma. Faint fruit notes. Light sweet and quite unfresh malt flavor. Grassy bitterness. Oily texture. Bitter-sweet ending. Edgy and simple, not really good.
