From a bottle, pours a clear deep amber with a tan head. the smell is toasted malt, brown sugar, bread, a little herbal. The taste is as it smells ending a with a little bit of chocolate and dryness. Light+ in body with crisp carbonation. Pretty nice.

This is a no nonsense Vollbier which is very drinkable. Though simple in its flavour spectrum, it does what it presents very well. A distinct flavour and drinkability, what more can one want?

My Bottom Line:
Delicate nutty caramel and herbal hop bitterness get along nicely in this dry and süffig lager.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam covers the misty auburn.
-The flavor profile is balanced.
-This is clearly in the same flavor family as their neighbor Penning-Zeisler’s Vollbier.
-Drinkability is through the roof.
On tap at the brewpub.
