3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown to black colored, medium strong a bit creamy tan head. Aroma is of caramel, Munich, nuts and bit of roasted malt. Taste is moderate sweet caramel, some Munich malt, some nuts, toasted bread and not too strong roasty dryish finish with low+ bitterness. Light to medium bodied, a bit watery texture, medium carbonation. Opinions vary with each bottle, always better from a 0.33.
