On tap at airport. Cloudy brown poor with half finger of persistent thick white foam. Bread malt and mild dark fruits on the nose. Flavor is similar but more malty than anything. Could drink this for hours. So tasty, only complaint is it's a little light.

Poured from a .5 L ceramic capped bottle. Bottled 23 Sept. 2016.

Look: Very slightly hazy copper-brown body topped with a moderate size beige head. Exceptional lacing.

Smell: appealing, malt dominated aroma; some mixed fruit preserves; faint spices and hops.

Taste: Rich for style. Malty and lightly sweet with some toffee and faint fruit jam tones; clean finish.

Feel: medium body; well carbonated; semi-dry finish.

Overall - An excellent example of this traditional German style.

L: Poured from a bottle to a mug. Had a medium brown color and a slightly cloudy texture. There was an inch of foamy, off white, somewhat long-lasting head. Not much lacing to speak of.

S: A decent aroma of a whole lot of malt, caramel, hops, and some fruit.

T: Tasted of light fruit notes (apple, in particular), some caramel notes, light hops notes, a big malt presence, a slight graininess, and a hint of citrus (lemon). A solid enough flavor that's heavy on the malt (like most German beers). Not bad, but it doesn't jump out at you.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a clean finish. Medium-bodied.

O: On the whole this is an enjoyable beer. It's one of those that doesn't deviate from style, but manages to do that well. Worth a look.

Pours into a half liter stein a dull lemon tinged tea color with a thick creamy lightly carbonated head atop.Caramel malts with some mild grass to go along with the expected dough aspect.A mellow feel wich is spot on for the style,very smooth.A sweet pizza dough flavor with some stone fruits melding into a slightly spicy herbal drying finish.Not bad...the feel is superb but not an overly complex palate,seems heavier than what it is.

Pours a finger of head on a dark straw body.
The aroma is bold caramel malt and ripe plum. Nice.
The taste has caramel throughout, a little lemon bitterness, more dark fruits.
The texture is lighter with nice carbonation.
It's fairly flavorful for the style and good.

Look: It pours a cloudy light brown with tinges of orange.

Smell: It has a rich, sweet malt aroma that has a bready smell to it. There are also aromas of grass and hints of floral. There is an off aroma that I can quite place that adds funk to it.

Taste: It has tastes of grassy hops, with slight floral and some fruity esters.

Feel: It has a light feel on the heavy side towards moderate. It is a smooth drinking beer with no bitterness and a sweet finish.

Overall: The taste was highlighted by the malts and hops in balance with the fruit esters adding some complexity.
