      Appearance (3)
      Bright amber, not as deep red as Eisbock. Low carbonation. Virtually no head.
      Aroma (3)
      Huge malt, some caramel. Quite a lot of alcohol.
      Mouthfeel (9)
      Big body, but not as big as you might expect. It's even a bit fizzy. Some malt character in the flavor as in the aroma. Really quite warming. Massive malty finish.

      Pale golden, high carbonation, thick head. Lots of grainy, toasty malt and perfumey hop aroma. Medium body, fairly fizzy. Fairly sweet, with lots of grainy malt flavor. Mildly skunked. Very mild noble hop flavor and bitterness. Finishes sweet and malty.
