500ml bottle served into a nonic pint

Look: Dark amber/coppery pour - pretty much clear with no trace of sediment etc. Slightly off-white, bubbly head with decent retention. Reminds me a bit of a typical pint of British bitter.

Smell: Slightly eggy(!) - think a slightly less sulphurous version of Bass with a fair bit of roasted malt and grain. Faintly resinous, but the malts and grains dominate.

Taste: Slightly sweet and earthy with that tang of sulphur in a barely-there sort of way. Some hop character but there's no way this could be called a hop bomb by any stretch of the imagination. Slightly herbal tang. Flavour-wise there's a surprising amount going on.

Feel: Quite thin and fizzy, despite the relative lack of head retention - despite being German I am again reminded of the traditional 'British pint'. Easy drinking and surprisingly refreshing.

Overall: A bit 'meh' - it's not bad, but there are a lot of better (and worse) altbiers out there. A good starting point, perhaps, but nothing astoundingly special as German beers go.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Amber, clear, effervescent; medium-small frothy egg shell white head, long lasting

Aroma: Malty; slightly vinous; light hops; light roasted grains

Taste: Juicy malt, fairly sweet; pretty thin overall mouthfeel; tastes a lot like a British brown ale (sulfury); smooth, but not particularly noteworthy

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores
