3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Manni's restaurant in Ft. Myers, FL. Of the three beers that I rated at this establishment, I definitely enjoyed this one the best as it was very drinkable and went extremely well with my weiner schnitzel supper that also was delicious. This beer formed a creamy and smooth off-white head with fine-small sized bubbles that were mostly lasting. The body was softly carbonated and transparent with a red-brown hue. The nose was malty, sweet and some fruit notes were detected. The flavor was lightly bitter with a slight aftertaste. The palate was creamy and smooth. This was a medium bodied beer with good lacing on the sides of my glass.

TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 133. This draft brew was sampled at the Manni's resturant in Fort Myers Florida. This brew poured a foamy head of finely sized off-white colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent yellow orange colored softly carbonated body and a fair lace. The aroma was mild and almost non-existant. The mouthfeel was nice and smooth with no bite from start to finish. The flavor was that of a decent brown beer malt but was thin and needed more.

Bottled. Tawny amber coloured body with a white sudsy head. Distinctive kolsch malt flavours. Moderate bitterness that lasts a good while on the palate. Just can’t seem to shake the thing.

Draught (gravity) at the Diebels brauhaus, Dusseldorf. Delicious, sweet, yet light brew. This tastes lagery, but is softer and with many more subtle flavours. The aroma, is marshmallowy, with a big frothy white head, and a nice creamy mouthfeel. This was the best alt which I tried in Dusseldorf.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light, slightly fruity aroma ... gorgeous reddish amber in color, but head is almost non-existent ... light, hoppy start and a crisp, bitter finish ... Alcohol noticable on palate, along with a hint of pepper ... lighter than I thought it would be ... good, but not spectacular by any means.

Clear light copper color. Decent head. Though this is quite light colored with virtually no aroma, it has a big malty taste. Really really good flavor.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice medium brown, decent head. Grainy aroma. Flavor is of simple malt, a touch of caramel, and some bitterness from the hops. Not complicated, but pleasant.
