A: Strong lemon/coriander initial aroma, followed by a moderate lacto sourness and a light doughy on the finish.

A: Straw color, totally opaque, with a very thin ring of head around the glass.

T: Lemon flavor, moderate lacto sourness and a little doughy, finishes dry.

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation, well attenuated and refreshing.

O: Pretty solid, straight forward Berliner. Full disclosure: I’ve enjoyed Hottenroth for the last 5-6 years, prior to the recent explosion of Breweries creating Berliners. As such, I’ll always have a bit of a soft spot for Hottenroth. Having said that, while solid the aroma and flavor arent overly complex and there’s definitely a lot more competition these days.

On tap at Brasserie V in Madison, Wisconsin. Served in a pint glass.

Slightly hazy straw-yellow body, one finger white head with good staying power, nice retention, some lacing. Smells of wheat, mild lemon acidity, on the light side, not too intense. A bit of breadiness to it as well. Flavour is similarly bready, wheat, a bit of lemon and minimal citrus, mildly acidic, light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, very drinkable, good carbonation. Missing a little bit of depth, comparative to New Glarus' Thumbprint counterpart. Overall, decent berliner; could drink a whole 75cl bottle in one sitting easily and not get a buzz.
