BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear chestnut brown, beige creamy head. Malty and caramel aroma, some spicy hops too. The flavour is similar, with a light to medium clean body. Clean and simple, but too boring.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,5 l bottle. Pours out in a dark red brown with a mighty foamy light beige head. Malt and coffie on the nose. Taste is more roasted malt with licorice and toffee. Hints of resin. Not scratchy, more in a smooth way. Longlasting aftertaste. Really nice one for that kind of beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl bottle bb08/2015, local Edeka. Dull sweetish malt porridge nose, vegemite, some toast and stale cinnamon. Roasted grain, cereal, soggy cornflakes in toffee. Light mouthfeel. Drinks like a chuggably thin macro Dunkel, lacking depth, precise contours or edge, - balanced being a synonym of timid & underdosed here. Lots more character to be had in neighbouring Bavarian Dunkels...
