Bought six pack. Had first in the bottle, 2-4 in glass mugs, and #5 in a stein as I felt it appropriate as I'm using the fifth for the rating (spread out over two days). I usually take about 5 beers before I do a rating on it. The sixth is purely for enjoyment; not that rating isn't also for enjoyment.

Head is thick like sea foam and sticks around for a bit, making it fun to drink in the stein.

It's got a non-distinct malty smell that kind of smells like the floors of a brewery if you take away the staleness and the dirt.

The beer gets better the more you drink. At first, it's a tasty malty drink and then it goes on and a little bit of everything starts to come out like some bitterness, a bit of floral patterns and some hoppiness. But none of those are super distinct other than the maltiness, not that that's a bad thing.

Feels nice on the palette with a sticky bitterness after awhile if you wait around for it.

Definitely not an overly sweet maltiness. If you want to enjoy it, I'd suggest doing at least two in a row. One is good if you're just enjoying a brew with a meal but to get the full flavor, I'd take few along for the ride so they don't get lonely and you get a good taste. I don't know if its a great stein beer, but it is still fun to drink in one!
