1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Slightly hazy light amber. Slight crackerlike aroma is fairly uninspiring. Thin, some cracker notes. Very sweet finish. Watery. Light cracker finish with cantaloupes and lychee silliness.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft sample at brewpub. Not looking very dunkles, it’s a light amber color and pale. Has a tangy husky aroma like lemon squeezed over grain. This one enters super sweet and fruity, has very little toast or bread character. Sucrose flavors. Disappointing beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Orange colored with hazy appearance. Medium sized yellow head. Handmade yeasty caramelly aroma with some yeasty tone, not too good one. Medium bodied. Flavor is even sweeter with caramel dominating, aftertaste turns to handmage and grainy. Well, rather sweet and not so good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ brewpub Bamberg.
Pours almost black with off-white head.
Taste is nutty, roasted and malty, with light notes of chocolate. Found it to be fizzy.
Enjoyed the beer with the good farmer’s plate.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at the brewpub. Dark brown, small head. Ftruity toasty nose. Sweet and sticky, bready and syrupy. Dull and lifeless despite good amounts of flavour. It lacks malt firmness.

Cloudy pale brown colour. Aroma from cocoa powder and cognac. Fruity flavour and all lifeless with no maltiness. Does not linger. Naah!

On tap at Ambrausianum Brewpub, Bamberg. Clouded amber brown with thin white head. Again quite an amateurish beer, yeasty, tart and thin. Not very good.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
From tap at the brewery. Hazy, light brown with a nice head. The aroma has sweetness and notes of malt. The flavour is sweet with notes of malt and caramel - and IMO it’s monotonous without surprises of any kind. One that I have forgotten even one week later.
