3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Some light caramel malts, wheat bread sweetness. Weak ftuity hops. Weak but pleasant aroma. Off-white thin lacibg head over dark orange-amber clear beer. Medium wtery body with medium crbonation. Medium acidity and light sweetness up front. Reminiscent of certain altbiers. Finish is medium bitter, dry, a bit papery. After is mild bitter with a dry nutty taste. Overall, a decent beer but nothing spectaular.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose is a bit weak, overstewed hops, and faint fruitiness. Palate is a lot better, nice nutty malt up fron, pretty much like a british ale. Rather dry, with a nice bitter finish, which could be a bit more aromatic. As bottled Altbiers (yes, this is an Altbier !)this is a pretty good one ! Classy packaging too !

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber (much darker than on the little picture to the left). First thing to mention, it´s not bitter. Most Pilseners are more bitter. Slightly sweet (caramel?), hoppy. Bitter finish. Quite nice.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Really cool bottle. Darkly amber with sea foam. Caramel and tea aroma. Initial clean, smooth, slightly fat mouthfeel with candy malt coming through, then a warm bitterness. OK - decent quality - the real interest being the warm bitterness in the finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy amber color. Poor aroma. Ordinary taste, like many other Dunkel; caramel. Not a Bitter.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells like dishwater, but has a nice amber look. The typical taste of beer is missing. Taste is boring and the aftertaste is scratching in your mouth. Nothing spectacular.
