Picked up a rack of local beers during a recent trip to Berlin and this was one of them. Deep golden yellow pour with a really quickly fading head and minimal lacing. Malty, sweet nose but pretty subdued. Lots of sweet malt and bread with just a hint of fruitiness in the taste. A little metalic bitterness on the finish. Very unique beer but a little too sweet for my liking.

500ml Bottle: BBD Nov 2013. Drank in my Berlin hotel room on 25 Feb 2013.

Golden brown, clear and clean: no head. Even though it was poured three times into a small tumbler I couldn't get it to produce any form of covering.

This beer looked like and tasted like a fizzy malt drink: I wasn't impressed at all.

Really pop like, couldn't even get any of the 6% ABV feel. Strange sweet brew that must be produced for the younger crowd or something, not hardened beer drinkers.

I'll not be seeking this out again.

Somewhat insipid and syrupy, but drinkable for a budget brew.

A: Pours copper with a somewhat uneven white large a bit soapy head. Faint lacings.

S: Sweet malt, slightly roasted. Some bitter hops and some citric notes.

T: Creamy sweet malt. The alcohol is noticable. Considering the style; balanced hops - both bitter and floral.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Medium-long aftertaste that holds both bitterness and sweetness. The alcohol is noticable again in the aftertaste.

D: One of the better Euro Strong Lagers I've had, but the alcohol is a bit lower than others I've had and that was obviously not a bad thing.
