2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours reddish brown into the bottle with a decent crown that fairly rapidly dissipates. Aroma is caramel malt. Taste reminds strongly of a traditional altbier: malty, lightly sweet, hints of toffee, and with very little bitterness. However there is also a lightly smoky undertone, and dominant is a sourness that is not unfairly characterized as rotting apple. Just a touch above being light bodied. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light dark, brown, with very pronounced head, which quickly diminishes. Aroma of roast coffee, yeast, and a hint of caramel. Taste is very carbonated at first, then the fizziness quickly dissipates and gives way to a light, yet complex sweet taste. No bitter finish or aftertaste. A very positive surprise. A good dunkel!
