The beer was tasted at the Brauhaus Graf Beust in Essen, Germany. It was served in a 0.3 liter Pilsen glas. The foam was nice and the color, it was a fitlered beer, was perfect gold. The first smell I got was full of Diacetyl. The taste was very buttery. From my point of view this beer was not fermented very well. The smell of Diacetyl made it nearly impossible to keep on drinking. Diacetyl totaly destroys the impression, that's why I'm giving a 2. I will have a second tasting some weeks from now giving the "Ruhrpott Pils" a second chance.
