Served: on tap at the brewery
Impression: This was my second beer on my first visit and again the presentation was excellent with a ample rocky head in a logo specific glass, something rare in Germany. There was a hint of caramel in the nose which led well into the primarily rich malt palate. There was an unusual but not unpleasant smokiness before the long somewhat dry finish. It was quite drinkable at 5.5% but it didn’t jump out at me and liked the Fuhrmannstrunk better.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
