2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taste of roasted malt, not sweet, not bitter, a middle of the road plain taste, suited for session drinking. If it wasn’t from the alcohol strength. A flaw in the aroma: cooked vegetables.

Trade with McTapps
Couleur brune, mousse qui disparait. Nez chocolat, malt toasté, café, caramel (on dirait une porter). Gout malt toasté, moult de café, note de houblon, caramel et épices. Corps assez leger. Fin longue amère et note grillée. Pas mal

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (Freigeist/Goeller labeling).
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium to dark brown.
Aroma is moderately malty (toasted nuts/bread, caramel, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Pretty uneventful...decent enough aroma but kind of simple. Not particularly enjoyable to drink...flabby mouthfeel and mild flavors. Instantly forgettable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Exploits the darker aspects of the style. Caramelly and floral aroma with lots upon lots of fresh cut grass. Light sweetness and a nice, residual sticky mouthfeel. Quite a chocolatey flavour finishing with an underlined bitterness. Tasty.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle. Bottle is misspelled "Ehrenfeider". It ahs a very dark pour and a murky brown appearance. The head is small and sudsy off-white. The smell is cocoa and roasted malt, fruity hops, very much like an american brown ale. This is a thick-bodied altbier right form the get-go. It is crisp and dry though with ashy roast notes, licorice, and a heavy-handed hop bitterness that is almost puckering, heavy herb and grass bitterness notes. Really nice meaty malty altbier.
