2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Grainy aroma. Dark golden color, beige head, good lace. Light sweet, nasty bitterness, very malty, little fruity, syrupy and still a little dry. There's something is these Einbeck beers that I don't like. They have this strange yucky bitterness.

Light ruby color. Small scum of a head on top. Aroma is spicy with some slight malt. Taste is decent malt with a little caramel. Not sweet and has lots of nutty taste. Nothing special.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
a nice classic, in maibaock beers.
It's golden-yellow tones, nice foamy head. In the nose there is a difference between tap and bottle. The bottle is more aromatic, possibly due to the temperature. The taste is malty at fist, fruity and a closing of bitters, which invite you to drink more than one beer. Excellent quality.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp light amber with thin but long lasting head. Not strong but interesting warm-spice aroma. Thicker body that you would guess from the appearance. Spice notes dance lightly on the tongue. Overall mild and light tasting. Easy to drink more than one.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a copper color with a small white head and some lacing. Fruity (apple), earthy, slightly bitter aroma. Not skunked, although at a quick sniff it could be misconstrued as so. Crisp and refreshing hoppy taste, although lagerish at the same time. A nice example.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper/orange coloured body with a minimal whiteish head. Aroma of some fruit, but otherwise powerful bittering scents. Medium-bodied; Strong flavour of fruit and malt lasts in the mouth for a long while. Aftertaste shows some bitterness and a slight sweetness. Overall, not a great beer, but that is to be expected from this brewery. I shared this bottle with Phil (haddon90) at the Flying Saucer in Nashville, Tennessee...thanks Phil!

Well, this poured an orange color with a thick white head. The aroma was a little dull but the flavor was nice and malty. Even though it was a bit thin, it is worth a try.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I really enjoyed this. Tons of apples and fragrant grain in the aroma. Almost a room spray type scent. Clean, fresh, floral. Hoppy and fruity finish to balance out the perfumey notes. Not especially sweet. Brought to mind a spring harvest of some sort, the crisp picking of fruit on a sunny day.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hmmm, "best by" date December 2002. Brilliant copper; the small paper-white head leaves excellent lacing. Huge, mouthwatering malty aroma is supported by impressions of flower garden, honey, and lemon zest. A sucession of flavors: honey-wheat bread, toffee, lemongrass, and herbal bitterness with a touch of mint. Strangely powerful alchohol taste, like a shot of vodka. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation. Long bitter grassy/herbal aftertaste, maybe a tad lightstruck?
