Hazy amber color; thin creamy head. Strange aroma of cocoa powder, light alcohol. Medium bodied, it has some malt flavor, light caramel, dirty water, light residual sweetness, low bitterness, hence empty final. Simple or weird.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aluminumbottle (thanks Bov!). Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is doughy, bready and also has some caramel malty notes. Flavour is caramel malts, grass, bready and overall quite sweet. Balanced, but the mashlike sweetness feels a bit strange.

Bottled (weird AL-bottle, BB 11/2009).
Dark amber color, small off-white head. Caramelly, a bit chocolaty nose. Caramel, fruit cake, light malty-cardboard note. Quite watery palate. More or less ok, despite of trend-like odd package :)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle, with special thanks to Stefan!) Hazy, copper colour with a short creamy, off-white layer. Sweet, moderately yeasty, toast-malty aroma with toffee and notes of chestnuts, plus a light hoppy touch. Sweet flavour, medium to light body on a smooth carbonation. Toasty, malt-accented taste with toffee and distinctive nutty notes; malty, sweet-ish finish with a tinge of herbal hops and a yeasty bitterness coming through. This one was vintage 2007. Last years Osterhäsli was a dark Bock.
