3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 Draft. Pours very well, with a foamy German type head. Has a nice roasted malt aspect to it, which actually calls to mind a well-made Vienna lager. In other words, this is a pretty okay beer. The texture and mouthfeel come across like a standard American "dark beer," which can get in the way of one's enjoyment.
2004 rating: Color is light as a Hamm's these days, which can also detract. They keep making them lighter in germany to match the lowest common denominator in drinker preferences...

La ritengo una grande birra da pasto. Il colore è giallo tendente all’arancio, schiuma molto frizzante e poco persistente, poco all’odore ma al sapore dà il meglio di sè con la sua perfetta carbonazione, un lievito davvero equilibrato che dona una giusta amarezza, appena più alcolica di una normale lager-weizen. Ottima marzen davvero.

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.
