First Impressions:

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


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.
