Borbecker Helles Dampfbier

Borbecker Helles Dampfbier

On the 29th of Mai 2009 we were sitting at the Brauhaus Dampfe in Essen. I've ordered a Helles of their varietie of beers. The beer was served at a cool temperature in a 0,5 liter glas. The first impression from it's smell was okay but after a while of compensation of the malt smell I could clearly smell butter. The first impression from the taste: bitter, much to bitter and besides that it tasted oxidised. The bitternes was very rought and lingering. From my point of view it was to masty for a Helles which is suppose to be more like a pils or lager. Freshness was ok.

The bitterness could come from the yeast, basically the beer was settled too long on the yeast.


The beer was poured from a keg
