3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2004 Beer of the month in a pub in Hengelo. From tap. Deep dark, red brown color. Sweet, malty taste with lots of caramel and coffee. Just a hint of sourness. Light but long-lasting hopbitter finish. Thin bodied and dangerously drinkable. Delicious beer, highly recommended as a summer beer. Re-rate Hotel Schmittbräu in Waldmünchen. Tap. Caramel aroma and flavor. Thin, sweetish, sugary, malty and o, so smooth... Love it!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark and malty and the flavour is sweet, but not cloying, and it has notes of caramel. It’s easy to drink but it could have more depth. (Early rating, and too short)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep reddy brown, bready head. Smell is a bit metallic. Quite watery palate, but a decent enough burnt maltiness to it. Very restrained hops. A little sweet, but some samples we’ve had have been very sweet - quality control’s not their strong point. Quite drinkable, but not very exciting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice dark, thanks to Radek bought in Poland. Wine brandy colour, bit of lace. Licorice, bit sour, despite malting including caramel. Tad chocolate malt as well. Bit of roast. Not complex, easy drink. A particular dunkel style, OK but not that I seek out.

500mL thanks to Ruben! Pours high carbonated clear mahogany, soapy, tan to coffee head. Good retention, some rockiness. Stays around for a good while. Nose is metallic with lemon tea and detergent. Taste is very watery, lemon tea, soap, hints of coffee and chocolate.
