3.43/5  rDev +22.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This pours amber, very slightly hazy, and my slow pour leaves little head, but what is there is very fluffy white.

Smells malty and sweet.

Taste is quite subdued but refreshing. It is malty, somewhat light in the hops. There is a pronounced sting of some acrid bitter flavor, not sure what that is, but it detracts from the taste a bit. That is more of an aftertaste though.

Very rich body.

Mouthfeel is creamy.

Finish is also creamy, it does not water out at the end.

I'd never guess that this beer was a high alcohol beer, the alcohol is completely hidden. I'm not real fond of the aftertaste, but it is really a good beer to try.

A nice head and crisp mouthfeel, this strong Euro-lager is refreshing on a hot day. The aroma is distinctive, with a toasted biscuit hint. The taste hides the alcohol well, finishing clean. Not the best beer, but not as poor as many of the reviews suggest.
