3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft at the brewery in nurnberg. ruby-hued chestnut brown. medium-full body; creamy, frothy, smooth and a little bit oily. toasted almond and caramel malt is mildly rough. flavors together are all very mild and tend to come through mostly late on the palate. straight-forward munich malt nose and red apple / black cherry / plum / toffee flavor. drinkable but nothing special.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub. In my krug, it appears to be medium brown. This drinks with an even-keeled malt base with just a mild, sugary edge. Quite an easy drinker for a bock, and not at all obvious in its relative strength. (#4379, 11/30/2011)
