3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to my girlfriend who brought me a bottle from Germany. Golden color with full, foamy head. Fresh, herbal taste, and good sweetness from the malt. I found it disappointingly thin on the palate. A fine example of the style, but nothing too spectacular.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap, at Kneitinger Keller Regensburg July 2005. Gold, moderate white head and gentle condition. Chalky grain sweetness in the nose, solid malt sweetness in the mouth balanced by a gentle flowery hop note, lingering peppery hop and chalky grain in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden fluffy white headd.
Flowery perfumed hop aroma.
Sweet candyish yet quite lightbodied malt body overlaid with aromatic hops.
Too little substance.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
GBBF 2003, tap: Too bad we didn't get to sample the dunkel - this was crap. Sulfury nose, hazy pale orange color, lathery head. Lemony, citrusy tones is an otherwise unpleasant body. Late hoppiness. Awful balance - like a home brew gone bad. Very odd. Poured this one down the drain.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
GBBF 2003: It was supposed to be Kneitinger Dunkles, but the brewery send the wrong beer as a guy from CAMRA informed me. Orange nose - ok but not intense. Hazy orange-golden color, little layer of a head, leaving laces on the glass, no carbonation. Grassy, but slightly. Odd metallic finish.
