Impression: I’d liked both beers in the regular line-up and I was expecting the most from this seasonal beer so unsurprisingly I was initially disappointed. It was a lot fizzier than the previous two beers but as it calmed down and warmed up, it revealed itself as a fairly balanced dry quaffer at 4.9%. The citrus in the nose was enticing but overall it didn’t come close to either the Helles or Rauchbier for me.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
