3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish brown color. Sweet malty aroma. Flavor-wise it fits somewhere between a dark lager and alt beer. A little caramel-like and not too sweet on the palate.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wonderful dark copper color and toasted malt taste. Not overpowering but very flavorful and worth trying if this is not your typical kind of beer. Very different to find a german red beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Die Schaumkrone hält mittelmäßig, trüb und dunkle Farbe. Geschmacklich leicht hopfig, malzig, die malzigkeit ist auch im Nachgeschmack noch vertreten. Fazit: Trinkbar hatte aber mehr erwartet.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
from bottle, purchased at mannheim central station. red, slightly hazy colour with a frothy, two-finger head. the aroma is quite fruity, didn’t expect this at all from this beer. heavy malty notes, some earthy hops. chocolate mixed wirth strawberry, wow, it smells like a chocolate bar with strawberry yogurt, hints of vanilla as well. the aroma is really appealing! so let’s give it a taste. medium sweet taste in the beginning, then it turn to a sort of bitterness. fruity, malty flavour, almost as the aroma. light to medium body, quite creamy. yeah, this is a good one! damn, I should have bought more of those than the rather poor pils from the same brewery....
