look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear dark amber color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention and lacing are both very good. Aroma of German hops. A little biscuity and grapes. Some lager taste , German hops and toffee at the end. Very slightly fruity. Somewhat silky on the end. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

poured a rich copper brown, mainly clear, with an off white head. good lacing.

smells of caramel and malt, some nut or nut extract, and an ioda of pine.

taste is rich and sweet, a little roasted nut, and some caramel flavors.

good mouthfeel, definetly has a good body to it. drinkable.
