AtronSeige (1707) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 16, 2017
Aroma: Medium-light roastiness, coffee. Light lactic Appearance: Clear, dark copper body. Small, egg-colored head with almost no retention. Flavour: Medium-light, roasty, caramel. Light lactic, bitterness. Medium-dry finish with a hint of roastiness, lactic. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Low carbonation. Overall: The lactic notes work better with a dark style of beer (particularly stout), but they are a bit too prominent for this style. Carbonation and head retention is too low. Not really picking up any hop flavours or aromas. 440 ml bottle, poured. 8B. Schwarzbier
