Dark chestnut brown with thin beige head, caramel, touches of peach and coffee and a hint of banana on the nose. Roasty rich body with a good balance of crisp earthy bitterness and dark fruit. A nice strong Franconian dunkel .

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
ASPETTO: marrone coca-cola un po’ più chiaro, limpido. Schiuma non molto fine, scarsa e poco persistente. AROMA: lievi toni maltati. GUSTO: appena messa in bocca, si avverte un’abbondante carbonizzazione. Si avverte anche l’amaro, ma non abbondantemente. Nella parte finale della bevuta, emerge un tenore maltato, che ci ricorda che abbiamo a che fare con una bock. Retrogusto amarognolo. Sapori non accentuati. Birra che presenta solo due sapori, e anche lievi e disomogenei. Non si fa ricordare.

Moderate sweet and light-to-moderate bitter flavour with some acidic note.
Light-to-medium body with watery-to-oily texture; soft carbonation; light alcoholic feeling in the finish.

50cl screwtop, Stadelbauer, bb: NN. Rather thin ruby-maroni pour, almost translucent. Fruity sugary nose of plum wine, Vitamalz, pear syrup. Taste is nearly the same with that diluted pear/apple syrup quality to it, with a redeeming drinkability and not too much sugar. Soggy mouthfeel. Balancing dryish hop bitterness underneath.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (screw cap). Almost clear amber-brown with a small head. Aroma of caramel malts and bread with roasty and spicy touch, slightly unclean and skunky in first minutes. Moderate sweet with caramel, bread, dried fruits and alcohol, low bitterness, needs some time to open up. Medium-bodied, watery texture. A bit flat, but kinda OK.
