2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle: Mostly clear amber body, light copper tints with a gray, off-white layer of bubbly foam on top. Aroma is pretty skunky, lightly metallic; notes of burnt grains, dirty earth, floral bitterness, some bread. Not loving the metallic skunk, though. Flavor is pretty metallic, too, kind of astringent with each sip. Bitter, lots of earthy notes & almost over kilned maltiness. Has a touch of bready, toasted sweetness hidden in there, but it’s faint. Slightly gummy. Kind of stale. Skunk comes through in the aftertaste with that lingering metallic & caramel malt... Not really digging this one. Tastes old. Might be? Meh.

Pours very light with white head. Light body. A cross between a a pilsner and wheat beer. It is what it is.

The restrained aroma gives little hint of the bull bodied flavour to follow. Maybe a little stronger than one would wish for an extended session - but definitely a worthwhile addition to one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a super chilled 11.2 ounce bottle into a dimpled mug; lightly aromatic; a golden yellow clarity; first gulp has an ever so slight skunkiness, which does not deter further gulping; nor should it as this bier has a terrific smoothed hop first and a malty second to my taste receptors. Nice. Have a pretzel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprised to see this on tap in The Crown Inn, Oakengates on 19th Nov 2014. This renowned cask ale pub does not normally have guest kegs on. Anyway I availed myself with a half as a reminder of my 8 O’fest trips to Munich I have had over the years: happy days. Couldn’t afford a litre and I was on a ticking mission and I thought I had already rated this. Poured clear golden, the white head hanging around for a while. The nose was malty, bready and slightly fruity: not as I thought I remembered (sweet molasses mostly in my mind). The taste was also malt led, but the beer was not as sweet as the aroma suggested or how I remember: bitter finish. Good actually, must get my memory to recall stuff better and what beers I have actually rated or not.

i will attempt to independently give the same observations about this beer as the other 72 of you, just so my opinion on the beer’s merit has some credibility: rich, dark gold colour. nice decocted malt smell. flavour is nutty/toffee, dried out at the finish by alcohol instead of bitterness. pretty low intensity but good quality straightforward vienna/munich malt character.
