2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewpub. This comes across as just a bit thin. There’s a hint of caramel and toffee, but generally this is not as characterful as the other two we tried. Certainly easy to drink, but I choose the others. (#4381, 11/30/2011)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Beer in the glass brownish, nice head. Roasty-malty aroma. Starts mild malty, modest roasty, some smokey notes. Also light nutty. Finish well balanced, soft-malty, quite drinkabkle. Not bad!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap in Nürnberg, dark red body, chestnutty with a lacing tan head. Malty sweet taste with lots of toffee, here are some nice juniper/heather notes to my taste, light hoppiness. My favorite of those available on my visit, though the ’Schwarz’ was probably its only competition.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ brewpub. Hazy red with very thick cream-colored head. Fruity aroma is mostly apples. Is inviting enough. Same oily palate as the other two house beers. Very bland and easy, watery. Fruity malt, a decent apple and earthy flavor.

On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Sweet caramel aroma followed by sweet molasses and hints of chocolate. On the sweet side, but drinkable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at the brewpub. Amber coloured. Aroma of toffee. Sweet and buttery flavour. Unpleasant. Seems a bit infected.

1.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
1L bottle with ceramic cork. Hand carried to Calgary. Very big fluffy off-white head on slightly cloudy red-orange beer. Intriguing aroma, not beer-like but...reminds me of kitchen smells. Creamy body and neutral start turn to sour vinegar. Something wrong with this beer. Hard to believe anyone would be happy with this on tap.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the brewpub. This poured a lovely, superb misty amber-red body, with an off white-tan head. The nose is immediately a small letdown though. Soft & malty, with very light notes of hard candy. The taste is unfortunately as I expected it after that... empty. Somewhat sweet, soft. with very light soapy/herbal notes. Ordinary.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewpub. Dark yellow, light reddish color. Malty, light sweet flavor with fruity hop notes. Light to medium bitter, dry finish. Fresh, light yeasty, hoppy aroma. Good drinkable but not very special.
