Bottle from the brewery, shared at local tasting. Pours clear light amber with a small white head. Aroma is malty, cellar and earth, wet wool. Taste is light sweet malty, caramel and toffee, some hops as well, strange but good in a way.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Shared 500 ml swingtop bottle, thanks to gunnar who brought it fresh from Bamberg. ABV is 6.0%. Amber / reddish brown colour, moderate white head. Unusual "wet wool" or "damp closet" aroma, weak caramel malts in the background. The flavour is moderately malty with a little caramel, but is not very sweet. The aroma blends in with the flavour in an unpleasant way.

Bottle at the brewery. Clear copper-coloured with a small white head. Neutral malts aroma. sweet malty flavours, balanced by grassy hoppiness. A bit boring, actually.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Aroma of slight veggies, somewhat weak, slight fruitiness. Some malt but not a lot. Pours dark amber, almost nut-brown, eggshell head. Taste of dark malts, a little sweet caramel, light hops (this is essentially a Dunkel). Thick, prickly, slightly oily feel, medium body, and a dry, dark aftertaste. Faint fruitiness. Not bad for a session, but this one needed more punch.
