Bottle from derdopplebock? Pours amber brown, looks like a brown ale, very nice. Aroma is nutty, balanced with peppery hop. Taste is a similar bag with hints of toffee and lemon, exstremly well balanced and drinkable.

Bottle@Pilsbar Franco, Erlangen. Dark for a lager, sort of a pale mahogany. Lightly perfumy aroma, with some pigfarm aromas. Nutty malts and also quite fruity ( i was having a tough time pinning this down). Lovely earthy hops, slightly grassy. Very nice drinking. Maybe it was because i was a little thirsty, but this was really pleasant.

Nice sourdough aroma (yeast and lactic acid), wood and bitterhops.
Brown, low head and well-lagered low carbonation.
Wooden flavors with a hint smoke, sweet malts,
Nice hop finish.
Mouthfeel is the lovely franconian dry keller-fizz, body could be a tad fuller.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ahh, memories from two years ago...Bottle. Aroma of nut, dark malts, and dark chocolate with a little barnyark funk / veggies...touch of bread and popcorn. Dark nut brown / dark copper pour with a sticky, lacing beige head. Creamy crisp taste with all of the above included. Toasted nutty choco veggie. Light flowery sweetness balanced by hops. Mild, with light end-bitterness. Nice and malty, nice and rural.

Bottle from Fränkische Botschaft, Berlin. Pours clear dark amber with a small creamy light tanned head. Aroma is good malty, dark bread, caramel and grassy hops. Taste is also malty, full of hayish notes with a light roasty feel at the end, not bad at all.

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!
