500 ml bottle. Clear dark coppery colour, medium off-white head. Sweetish toasted malty aroma with notes of nuts and fruits. The flavour is sweetish malty, bready, with toasted notes and a mildly hoppy finish. OK.

Nice bread/malt/caramel aroma. Flavor is fruity, sweet, and spicy, like carrot cake with a caramel topping. Flavorful and really easy to drink.

Dark brown color but incredibly bland. Slight hop flavor in the finish but overall just not very flavorful.

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

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft poured into a stein. A flat caramel cola aroma with some fall baking spices emanate from the initial pouring. As it settles, a doughy / yeast not appears as well as a very mild floral note, and a hint of mildew (maybe some undertones from the earlier yeast aroma?). The cola aroma also evolves to a more root beer aroma. It’s a rich, clear caramel brown with a light brownish / yellowish, fluffy, creamy, fizzy head. The head is consistent, small bubbles evenly distributed which dissipates slowly and leaves an abundant lacing. The taste is a mellow, medium level of sweet with a light, dry bitter. This is a thin, watery textured beer with a soft, subtle, effervescent carbonation. The medium body is mostly malty (although not overly rich) with notes of caramel, toasted bread, and maybe even a hint of chocolate. There’s also tones of spice (allspice?) in the sip. The very light, floral and citrus finish is mostly clean with a toasted grain aftertaste that doesn’t last long.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 Bottle @ home . Versata in un bicchiere da lager, sprigiona un bel profumo di malto tostato e di cacao amaro. La schiuma è abbastanza fine, compatta e di color nocciola. la birra è marrone con riflessi ruggine, limpida, forse solo una lievissima velatura.Amara, ha una decisa nota tostata, che ricorda la frutta secca, ma anche il dolce del malto si lascia sentire. Il corpo è debole, molto meno pastoso di quanto mi aspettassi. estremamente rinfrescante grazie al sentore di luppolo , presente ma poco accennato il gusto di cereale. Molto buona e di facile beva.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a dark caramel with off-white foam. Smells crisp and hoppy like a pilsner. Tastes initially crisp and slightly hoppy but mellows out into a lightly roasty/caramely sweet flavor.
