1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.5 l bottle.
Dark brown colour, minimal/soapy pale brown head, average carbonation.
Sourish smell, taste is the same, body’s watery.
Flavour’s rather sharpy/sourish, too, added with some roasted aroma in the background.
No, sorry, I couldn’t drink this whole bottle at all...

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Slightly hazy, brown color with fully diminishing beige head. Odd aroma of sour yeast and some kind of sugary sweetness
along with a nice hidden dunkel character. The flavor is strongly infected with the sourness, although it shows up some dunkel
character. A bad batch i guess....

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Average one with a brown body and a small white head. Aroma of a lager with sourish yeast, some malt, metallic hop, moderated toasted, minimal roasted feeling. Flavor of a lager beer. Made with colorant-caramel....

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 4.8%. Clear dark brown colour. Very small unstable tan head. The flavour is roasted, a little rough. Not really sweet or anything to balance. Not repulsive, just quite bland.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled(500ml). -from Auchan Budaörs. Only few dusty bottles left in the box which was hidden behind the Soproni beers. BBE: 10.06.2009. so the beer should be good for at least two months, but this one was obviously infected. Murky brown coloured, airy off-white head, neutral nose. The taste was quite sour (lambic like) with bready and caramel notes. In general bought dunkel drunk lambic; probably the cheapest lambic I’ve found ever...

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2009 0.5l bottle that ogivlado found somewhere in Budapest and shared with me (thanks!)
Disclaimer: This bottle was more than likely infected and this rating probably shouldn’t be taken as a reference about this beer.
This poured a completely, utterly murky brown body with a big slightly off white head that went away at a medium pace. Got really fizzy as the head receeded. The nose was strangely absent, only some light dust. As it warmed some coffee showed but not much. The taste immediately showed the infection. Strong, but quite clean acidity, refreshing even, light funk, maybe sulphur but, as I said, clean and nice. One of those rare cases where infection actually helped the beer and helped it a lot! Some extremely weak caramel. Some breadiness shows up near the finish. Funny really. Will rerate of course. As a dunkel, this would be in the lower 1s, saved mostly by the appearance. Overall, it probably scores more than it should.
