Draught at the brewpub in Las Vegas
Dark amber color. Aroma of caramel. Caramel taste, much more… full and round than a classic German. Not enough hopping.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 Swingtop from Bine and Vine. Pours cola color with a beige head - though with lots of light behind it, it’s dark ruddy copper. Warm dark malt aroma. Med body, maybe. Flavor is lightly chocolate, a little darkly malty. Maybe a bit yeasty in the finish. Not much bitter in it. Enough flavor to make it an interesting beer.

Source: San Diego, CA
dark brown, big tan head, slight floral hop aroma, rich malt flavor, good dose of chocolate malt, touch of bitterness only after it warms, too one dimensional
Source: wild wing
more complexity, notes of toasted malt
Words: Las Vegas
toasted malt aroma, good rich chocolate flavor with perfect sweetness and the light character of the wheat, a benchmark dunkle as would be expected from the controlled GB brewery
Aroma: 5/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 13/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 Draft... The aroma was slightly sweet and spicy. Something like cinamon. Can’t place it. Also, soapy water in the nose. Maybe they had just washed the glass. Clear, dark mohogany. Foamy, big, off-white head. Malty, but not sweet. Well balanced. A touch fruity. Slightly thin, watery mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Finishes clean and dry. Very good beer. The restaurant in DC needs to rinse their glasses better. Dish soap ruins what is otherwise a very nice nose.
