2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very murky brown bodied, unfiltered is okay but this looks... well. Light roasted, woody and nutty malts. Soft bitterness, fairly malty yet surprisingly clean taste given its looks. Bit astringent too, not super good. (On tap at the Brauhaus)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Unfiltered and thus hazy in appearance. Similar roasted taste as in Münchener Dunkel style, but a bit more bitter and less sweet. The slight bitterness in the finish brings more character and supports the body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Geringfügig säuerlicher Beginn mit getreidig-malzigen Noten. Dabei ist die Malzigkeit eher gering, die Getreidenoten steigern sich aber. Geringe Würzigkeit. Süffiges, unspektakuläres Bier. 10/9/10/8//9

Only outlet is the brewpub (currently): my on-tap tall, thin 0.3 litre glass is used for all three of their beers that were available on my visit.
The beer is a dull dirty brown/amber, cloudy looking beast with a good white crown of bubbles that produced some heavy lacing on the glass as the beer level sank.
The smell was semi-wiess like: hints of banana with toffee molasses coming through as the beer warmed a ittle.
The taste was maltier than most beers of this style but not really sweet, some caramel and again toffee in the flavours balanced nicely with a mini bitterness from the hop content which otherwise had been hidden by the more powerful maltiness.
Easy and pleasant to drink.
