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 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2009 Re-rate 1/16/08: Bottle. Dark reddish brown with a medium, quickly disappearing, off-white head. Malty aroma with toasted bread and hints of milk chocolate. Sweet toasted malt flavor with caramel, light hoppy bitterness in the finish. A bit watery. OK, but definitely lacks in character and not as good as I remembered it. 6/3/5/2/11=2.7
Bottle. Dark brown with a pretty big beige head. Lightly roasted malt and some caramel in the nose. Flavor is nice sweet malt which finishes with a bit of hop bitterness. A light to medium body. A nice dunkel. 6/4/6/3/13=3.2

Bottle. Bought @ Fřtex, Aabenraa. Golden ruby-red (quite dark) with a medium, slightly fizzy, foamy yellowish head. Aroma is nutty with a little roasted malts. Flavour is sweet, nutty and mixing in a little chocolate and roasted flavours. Nice flavour, but the mouthfeel is perhaps a little limited.
