2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a decent semi-dark brown color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that lingers for a slim minute. Light lacing stuck around the glass.
The smell had a slight "smoked" sweet semi-meat like quality. However, I must admit there’s still that slight "skunk" to it. It’s there but probably would be more prevalent within three weeks.
The taste copied the smell leaving out the smell leaving out the skunkiness. The meaty to smokey quality comes across.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. As a Munich Dunkel, the carbonation seemed appropriately styled as it came across fairly smooth.
Overall, I say this was a decent Munich Dunkel. Wishing there would be a date somewhere on the bottle or the company would do away with green bottles.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark with a thin head. Aroma doesn't jump out of the glass; quite timid despite the strong Amber color. Flavor is bold on the palette but easy drinking. Several glasses can be consumed in short order without effort! Not an amazing beer but an easy choice if you want something dark.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Colore rosso scuro/marrone, bella schiuma.
Odore di malto, sapore dolce di malto, temperato dall’amaro sul finale, anche se la bilancia dei sapori pende dalla parte del dolce.
Una più che onesta rossa a bassa fermentazione.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2oz Bottle at home. Pours very clean dark bronze, light offwhite head fades quickly. Very strong grape, sweet red wine scent, bit of dark malt. Taste more red grape, lightly malted, some type of wood. I’m not getting the spice or malt balance that I expected. Bit too sweet to be a good drinking beer for me.

This one is very german malted. Not really my style as the malt and sweetness over powers it.

Bottle. Clear but, very dark Amber. Pilsner malt, corn and biscuit aroma. The taste adds sweet light caramel and earthy hops. Clean finish, but bland overall. Decent.

Aromas of bread, biscuit, and grass. Clear brown, off-white head is somewhat lasting. Definite malt sweetness upfront, remains malt-forward throughout, very bready. Medium bodied.
