330 ml bottle. Nice dark golden body with a light beige head. Aroma has malt and caramel. Flavor is malt and caramel, but unfortunately there is also an unpleasant sour and metallic subflavour. Probably something wrong with my bottle regarding the remaining raters.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear light copper lager that wears a large, lasting, delicately laced off-white head. beautiful. Distinct nutty maltiness is also toasty, rather dry and gently fruity (think figs, orange tea, raisins). Some sugary hints manage to peak through in a subtle manner, some kind of burnt caramel perhaps, but the toastiness keeps the lead. Firmly grainy, yet it develops a growing, more than fair powdery bitterness, quite leafy, grainy while the crisp palate feels medium bodied and excellently carbonated. A remarkable lager, very firm and pleasant texture.

Bottled. Their lovely hoppy signature, piney aroma and a dry aftertaste. Goes well with food with strong flavour - perfect with a smelly cheese!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The color is beautiful like dark amber and the head is nice. The aroma is malty with notes of flowers. The flavour has notes of malt, flowers, a bit of fruit, caramel and a nice bitterness. The body is nice and full, and it’s a very refreshing beer, ideal for an Easter lunch. 1989
