3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice mid red/brown colour. Clear with a nice natural carbonation.
Clean and crisp on the nose with slight malt, citrus and toffee/caramel notes.
Initially sweet with the malt lasting throughout.
An underlying fruit base comes through ( like Abbot Ale ) but the malty, biscuity sweetish finish with almost a raisin aftertaste makes this a winner for me.....

(bottle) pours a clear amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of dark fruit, caramel and hazelnuts, with lots of grain and mustiness. flavour is more on the roasted malt and coffee side of things, though still quite grainy, with a light roasted-bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 50cl. A clear amber-brown beer with good head and lacing. Nose is malty ans sightly vegetable like. Aroma is sweet, on barley sugar and caramel, with some grassy vegetable flavor at the finish, not too hopy. The beer has a dry finish with a watery mouse-feel. A basic dunkel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass as well. Zippy, nice head. Starts malty, modest dry, a bit rusty, fruity notes of raisins. Also some light smoky notes. Well balanced finish, a bit warming, very drinkable. Great beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Three for three with this brewery. Smells like caramel malt, sweet. The flavor is thinner than the aroma hints but still nice. This makes me think of a less sweet, less aggressive Kellertrunk.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A mid brown beer actually quite macho looking, but not dark enough for a dunkel IMO, with a tiny off-white rim of head. A malty German lager with a sweet slightly nutty aroma and taste. Clean and very easy to drink.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Bright bronze with a fine white cap. Garden herbal aroma with mint, wax, toffee and orange smudges. As you were in the mouth; oily hop, herbs, toffee, plus some lamb and mint sauce. Bread and caramel emerging in the finish. Slick and oily with a dip of marzipan and cake. Fine, but nothing worth rushing back to..
