bottle from a local Rewe. Hazy brown colour, mid-sized off-white head. Caramelly start, slightly sweet with a touch of honey and chocolate, also shy fruity hints. Hoppier in the finish. Smooth and easy-drinking beer.

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.

The beer in the glass is dark and slightly hazy. The smell is sweet and roasted malty. Starts with lots of roasted malts, slightly sweet, with hints of caramell. The aftertaste is very malty sweet. The further course gets more mild and palatable, the sweet malts grow up, very much!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Pours rather brown then red (as its name suggests) and a bit hazy. Probably a little hint of redness. Nevertheless it looks quite good because of its big and frothy head. Smells spicy, floral/grass or even a bit roasty. tastes really spicy, a bit roasty too. medium bodied and average carbonization. at the end palatable bitterness but not so much taste of the hops. quite good.

Reddish brown body. White head. Moderate lacing. Smell is sweet smokey malt. Taste is the same with notes of nuts and a mild hoppy finish. Mild carbonation with a thin creamy mouthfeel. good beer.

(swing top bottle, courtesy of Koelschtrinker) Hazy, amber colour with a big and light-beige foamy head. Dusty, sweet and slightly toasted malty aroma, also slightly nutty and subtle fruity with a shy dash of hops. Light-bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Toasty malty taste with yeasty and herbal notes; sweet-bitter, toasty and slightly fruity finish with a very light hops-character. Decent unfiltered Dunkel (07.07.08).

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........

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark red, almost brown, creamy lacing white head. Melonoidin malt aroma, light grass. Medium light body, mellow mouthfeel. Light berrylike, malt base, a hint roast, grassy hops, some salt/minerals towards the finish. Berries and caramel in the aftertaste. A bit boring initially, but start unfolding after a few minutes to a quite fresh and quaffable brew.
