3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle looks simple, but good. Beer surprisingly dark, the name was "Lager". Also tastes more like a Dunkel than like a Lager. Starts malty and dry, not too much, not too sweet. Well balanced finish, malty-dry, some notes of caramel. Great beer!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle… February in Franconia (2011)… Clear copper lager with a large, pillowy, off-white head. Great retention. The aroma is oddly earthy, woody and a touch lactic with a misplaced suggestion of funk. Medium-bodied and a bit oily with prickly carbonation. The flavor is perfectly balanced, but displays no nutty, toasty or chocolaty maltiness normally associated with dunkles. Finishes crisp and very lightly bitter. Thanks go out to erlangernick and Koelschtrinker for making this month of Franconia lagers possible!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from "Sörspecialista", Budapest.
Shows a clear and dark brown, the nice and laceing head is off-white,, which remains filmy on the top, carbonation’s average.
Smell of yeast and light toffee.
Crisp start, flavour’s toasty/toffee.
The middle is first of all yeasty with caramell and spicy/grassy aromas in the back.
The finish is spicy and dry. That follows a good aftertaste.
Good drinkable, medium bodied brew, overall not bad...

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Really cool old-school 50cl bottle. Dark chestnut, pale big bubbled head. Manure like nose, little sour cherries, springtime earth. Flavor has little roast, syrupiness, little funk, overdone popcorn, herbal bitterness with faint raisins. Almost medium bodied, soft mouthfilling carbonation. Strangely this intrigues my country boy heart.
