3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to the Doppelbock for this bottle. A very sweet smell, some ginger, light malty. Overall a nice aroma. A small off-white fizzy-creamy head, rather short lasting. The body is -no surprise-red. Startet sweet, but a few seconds later it gets a lot more bitter. The duration is rather long. The body is medium, very dry with a soft carbonation and an moderate astringent finish. A nice and interesting beer.

Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Pours a medium brown. Aromas of wheat bread, caramel, and a touch of something metallic. Flavor is malty/metallic without a lot of character.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bügelverschlußflasche: Hazy, light amber coloured, stable lacy off-white head; sweetish-fruity and toasted-malty aroma with some shy hoppy influences; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, quite soft MF; a light alcoholic trace in the sweet-fruity and caramelly finish. Not bad, but a bit too sweet........

Swing-top bottle. Toffee malt aroma. Reddish brown color with minimal head. Toffee malt and grass hops flavor. Nicely made - not especially exciting though.
