3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a good lager, with flavors/aromas of yeast and fresh grains. The name got my attention - barking this or barking that can be a funny name for something or other. It reminded me of Frank Zappa’s record label, Barking Pumpkin, and of the goofy names you see some vintners give their wines.

Pours a deep burnt orange with a medium fluffy tan head that quickly dissipated to a trace film. Aroma is floral, caramel and toast. Taste is sweet with mild hop bitters. Medium bodied, slick with a little stickiness. Nice Vienna as it is crisp and clean while remaining flavorful.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Glass-bottle. Malty nose with hints of grain. Brown in the glass. The beer starts malty, slightly sweet. Smooth and highly drinkable. Quite fresh. Slightly sourish in the mainpart, the beer continues smooth and malty. The aftertaste is medium, nearly no hops, malty-sweetish and smooth.
--> Nice session beer. Not too deep but nice malty and not too flat in aroma. --> 12/13/11/10
