Foam / Aroma

The delectable roasted malt aromas rising from the beer are an olfactory treat – the foam crowning the beer is compact and eggshell white.

Flavor / Color

This dark amber lager captivates with its slightly sweet, caramel flavor, and resonates with nuances of red fruits; these are counterpoised by a pleasant bitterness in the aftertaste. Together, all of these elements produce a delightfully unique flavor.

Remarks

This beer complements savory dishes such as roast, poultry and game.
