3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Copper Kettle. Deep chestnut brown in color with an ivory head. Malty lager aroma of nuttiness and light chocolate. But the flavor brought all the excitement. Nutty, light chocolate, gentle cereal maltiness and light hop bitterness bring a nice balace to a typically malty German style. Reminded me of a great brown ale.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: caramel, nuts. Appearance: brown/black. Head: minimal off white head. Taste: medium bitterness. Palate: medium body, thin feel, average carbonation, astringent.
Overall : Had a pint at the tap room, my second visit, after trying a couple of taster flights with my Beer Dog. Delivered to the table and looked smashing. A nice really dark caramel color with an off white head, which dissipated pretty quickly. Lot’s of malt in the taste with some nuttiness, but not much else. Very smooth and tasty going down, with a mildly bitter after taste. My only complaint would be that it got pretty flat by the end of the drought.

On tap @ CKBC. Orange brown appearance with an ivory head. Pretty nutty, toasty brown malty lager nose. Nutty, toasty brown malts, And hops that balance the flavor pretty nicely. Pretty solid beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery - a medium-bodied, creamy, clean version of the style - rich malts present notes of caramel and slight roasted nuttiness - a tiny bit of esters from the yeast add additional depth - sweetness is full but clean - moderately crisp and slightly peppery finish - well done.
