Drachenblut produces a vast amount of light tan head that sticks around for a good bit. The lacing sticks well to the glass all the way through to the end. The body of this brew is translucent, but well filtered and has a very dark ruby red color.
Aroma characteristics are actually more metallic than sweet. There is a slight fruity note, but not in the way of honey.
The overall taste is complex. It has Dunkel lager like qualities to it, such as slightly burnt toast, but has a stronger hops presence, which are again metallic with a slight herbal finish.
The mouth feel is prickly upfront and has a slick and oily finish.
This is an enjoyable beer and I'd get a case of this in a heartbeat to share with my friends. It's nice to see a German brewer make a beer outside of the guidelines of the Rheinheitsgebot, as this is actually brewed with honey and not added in after fermentation.
By the way, Drachenblut in english is "Dragon Blood."
