First Impressions:

Bitter, but not in an annoying way.  Subtle hops taste with little malt.  Good nose.  Slightly challenging to the American palate.

Mid-Drink:

Bitter aftertaste lasts and lasts.  Hops forward, but tough to nail down the taste profile.

After Word:

Leaves no doubt it’s a German beer.  Interesting enough that I will want to try it again.

Who Should Try:

Anyone who can stand some bitterness and a beer with some backbone.
