Bottle. Pours a reddish-brown color with a light tan head. Aroma of malts, fruit and toffee. Has a roasted coffee kind of flavor in addition to forementioned aromas. Fairly light bodied. Pretty easy on the palate.

Pours a bright brownish amber with a generous lasting off-white head. Very pretty to look at. The nose has a rich maltiness I find quite enticing. Notes of bread and hay with grassy hop hints to it. The flavor is refreshing just a little bit sweet. Though not particularly complex, it is very dry, crisp, easy to drink, and very enjoyable. Perhaps this beer isn’t getting quite enough credit.

This was the 2nd of 2 liters of beer at the Hofbrauhaus in Munich. What a treat compared to the other german beers I’d been drinking. This was a deeper, almost reddish brown body with thick off white head. Malty sweet, caramel aroma. Flavor was sweet, caramel, malty. Medium palate and a real good finish... from what I can remember.

On tap, Hofbrauhaus, Munich. Served in a 1L dumpled mug. Dark ruby but a bit light body, sweety but a bit watery taste. Aftertaste is a bit like stone, like a stonebier or gösser zwickl.I have expected a lot more from it.

I had this one at the Hofbrauhaus in Las Vegas on 2/17/08. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any notes at the time, but still recall a pleasant maltiness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light brown in color, very clear, with a whispy white head. Malty aroma with caramel, bread, and toast. No noticeable hop aroma or flavor. Medium bodied with a enouggh carbonation to make it drinkable. Big malty taste, not overly sweet, but balanced. A tasty cold weather brew.

Had this on tap before it and was much better. Slight green bottle skunk aroma upon opening, that dissipates after a few seconds. Unfortunately, not much taste at all afterwards. Faint caramel and bread. Thin.

Pretty solid beer, good when you want something darker but not too crazy. Well balanced brew that leans towards the malty side of things. Goes down smooth, very tasty.
