Tap (Lemke, Berlin)Marduk (7608) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 3, 2016
Gold, slight mist. Sweet malty aroma, spells stickiness. Full palate, indeed a bit sticky, but also starchy. Pleasantly hoppy. Not bad per say, but a bit sub-par as a bock. A bit too sugary.
Tap (Lemke brewpub, Berlin). Clear amber color. Small size, beige head, stays. Just sweet malty aroma. Sweet and malty body. Some tingly hops in aftertaste. Dry mouthfeel. A simple drink. Goes down very easy. Nice one. kermis (12870) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2015
Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear amber with a white head. Aroma of yeast, caramel, malt and light fruits with a little citrus. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. zvikar (6087) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - MAY 31, 2014
Draught sample at Brauhaus Lemke in Berlin. Pours orange to yellow with a huge head, aroma of wheat, lactic notes, grain, flavor of grain with lactic notes, cheese and malt, medium bodied. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 21, 2013
The head is stable, the body orange. It smells creamy-flowery, alcoholic-creamy. The taste is mild, easy drinakable, malty, a bit creamy-alcoholic, hay. Ok, but could be a bit more intensive in my opinion. 12/10/11/10/-/10 ganache (5856) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Tap zur Tiergartenquelle. Cloudy orange-golden with a rocky beige head. Sweet with a fantastic malt-hops balance, plays really well with texture in the mouth. Wild clover honey-dripping, faintly floral. Medium body, süffig! culchiem (3929) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2010
