2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Swing-top bottle: Dark amber coloured, thin fluffy off-white head, slowly diminishing; faint malty nose with a tinge of molasses and alcohol; shy sweet-malty start, quite dry malty body; finishes dry with a malty-veggy aftertaste and a very shy bitterness. Drinkable, not great........;too "tasteless"!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml swingtop bottle, bought in Bier Spezi Hamburg. Reddish brown colour, large off-white head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel and bakery, some fruity hops too. Malty flavour with caramel and bready notes, not very sweet, spicy and fairly hoppy bitter finish. Dusty aftertaste. Okay.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(engraved swing top bottle) Dark amber colour with a foamy off-white medium head. Dense toasted malty nose with a shy hoppy note. Light bitter flavour, medium to light bodied, lively carbonated. Roastmalty taste with a minimum of sweetness, hopbitter, slightly spicy and dry finish with medium length. Definitely not an outstanding brew, as it suggests being a seasonal Winterbier. I miss more alcohol and body for the winter warming effect.

Boring watery. Not enough power in the finish. However well balanced aroma and flavour.

A nice dark winter beer, but a bit too sweet for me, could use more hops, but a good beer overall
