Pours a coppery amber with a generous slightly off white head that stays awhile. Malty flavor with some hop flavor. Very good winterbier. Recommended!

I bought this at the local toom store in Wiesbaden. There was plenty of thick white head which formed a frothy dome. The lace was about average. There was an Orange-red body. The aroma was sugary sweet. The flavor was strong in sweet malty character and honestly sat a little heavy. There was some very mild hops tone at the end. Medium bodied. Overall, a great winter beer.

Deep copper color, white foam, quite beautiful, but quickly falling down.
Malty smell, quite easy.
Again a good maltiness in the taste, with light biscuit notes, and a finishing hop.
After a little warming, some honey notes, not invading, rises up.
After all, quite well balanced.
Good maltiness, pleasant, with a balancing hop.
The aftrtaste starts malty, with strong biscuitnotes, then a good hop.

The head is not stable, only a thin layer remains on top. Color was medium brown. The smell was very grainy and malt-like. Taste of malt, slight bitter and a bit of caramel, pretty ‘thick’ beer which lingers around in my mouth. Low carbonation and cleanliness of low fermentation yeast.
Aftertaste is bitter, and leaves a long aftertaste of caramel. This is a very good German beer.
