2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Das Bier schmeckt urig, insgesamt aber auch relativ mild. Hopfig-malzig startet das Bier, diese Mischung setzt sich auch in kräftigerer Form im Mittelteil durch. Dabei wirkt der Abgang leider wässrig, die eh schon milden Aromen scheinen hier plötzlich abzusacken. Nur ein dezentes Hopfen Aroma dringt hier noch durch. Der Ansatz bei diesem Bier gefällt mir, leider ging dies dann doch in eine andere Richtung als ich mir das vorgestellt habe. Schade!

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I got this bottle from a C- 5 air crew member who stopped in Germany on a lay over. Pored into a lager glass. Pours a brown body with white, fluffy head. Aroma is malt, funk and very faint caramel. Almost no head at all. Taste is very light all the way around. Earthy tones with weak malt. Thank god it tastes better then it smells. One big note: the best before date was 7- 21-2010.. so I enjoyed this past it’s prime. If I had it when it was fresher, it may have been better.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,5l bottle, with an illustration of a wild boar raising a glass. Got this from my brother-in-law, but don’t know where he got it. Light tan thin creamy head that disappears very quickly, clear amber/copper body. Aroma is faint caramel malt, straw, cereal grains, and faint brazil nuts. Flavor starts nutty and grassy, then grainy malt, and some weak caramel malt. Body is thin and a bit watery. Low carbonation. Nothing too exciting, but would go nice with a light end-of-summer meal. DocLock is probably spot on with the fish & chips. Octoberfest is right around the corner!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Rating #34. Dark gold pour with a nice white head. Corn aroma, mass maybe, very grainy. Sweet tea like flavor, a little more corn, but it was good stuff though. (1340)

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Swing top bottle from Capone’s. Pours dark straw toward copper w 2-f of head. Nose is liquid Wheaties, mild nuts, hops, brown sugar. Tastes like liquid Wheaties, corny, nutty, with some caramel and a medium to light palate heft and complexity. Too light to be a marzern contender, but with no major flaws, as such. This one would pair well with beer battered cod and chips, methinks.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Swing-topped bottle, with much thanks to a local C-5 crew. Deep copper and shiny with a nice active appeal. The aroma is of sweet apple cider. This drinks with a lot of that sweetness -- apple and grape, and a bit of summer grass. (#3781, 1/1/2010)

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Must preface this rating in that this bottle was at least a year old and isn’t a style that ages well. Maybe if I get to Germany someday I can post a review that will give this beer justice.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
pours a dark amber. Nice head. Not much lacing. The aroma is malty with hints of pee. The flavor is bland. hints of that same skunked malt in the flavor. The body is light. Little weight on the tongue. Not much of a great beer. But I guess its just easy to drink..
