Great brew! Somewhat between a Altbier and a Brown Ale. Nice differentiated smell of malts. Hoppy aftertaste. Easy to drink but not simple. I love it,

A great beer with many different flavors in the background of a solid, sweet, and creamy essence. The mouthfeel is divine, and the flavor has good depth. At 1.19 euro for a half liter, it is quite expensive, but it is hard to drink it slow as such. A very inviting beer I would recommend to anyone.

picked this up in flip top from the supermarket in Bad Bentheim just to try something different. Pours a brown red gorgeous color bee with a white slightly brownish head that lingers and slight lacing. Wonderful nose of malts and grain and the taste is of carmel and nuts. A nice mix of carmel malt and hops for a wonderful mouth and dry finish. I really like this beer-could drink too much!
