This beer is one of the best examples of the balance and refinement present in German brewing. It pours a deep, deep ruby. In the broad part of the glass it’s black in narrower parts it’s reddish brown. The head is a tan sticky beauty. Nose is of soft, clean malts, a nice chocolate roastiness and a fair smattering of noble hops. It smells so good, yet so refined. This is not a big beer, not at all, but it’s still so deep. It’s dry, but somehow still has a malty sweetness rounded out with a refreshing bitterness coming from the roast and the perfect level of hopping. Finish is smoth and clean with a subtle lingering bitterness. It’s so nice. Round and smooth, but still dry and refreshing. There’s a faint, metalic tang of the water in here as well. That’s right you can taste the water. What’s wrong with that? Soft and subtle yet flavorful and deep. Perfect. What craftsmanship.
