3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear brownish color with a fizzy tan head that quickly disappears to nothing at all. Smells of rich dark malt, caramel, dark bread, a bit nutty. the taste echoes the nose finishing nicely dry. A little oily with crisp carbonation on the plus side of light. Overall a tasty brew that I would love to try on tap.

Tap @ Dauth Schneider 30/01/13. Pours an auburnish dark brown with a yellowish-brown, large-bubbled head. Aroma is light caramel, a lot of dark bread, slight German hops. Taste begins with a strong caramel, some herbal flavor as well. Light breadiness. The finish is a disappointment. It is watery and light and not much of an aftertaste. Light herbal and wooden notes. Palate is light, somewhat carbonated, a bit watery. A bottle I had a few days later (thanks Hart) was completely different. It was a bit older, but the aroma and flavor were strongly hazelnut. Scored the tap version.

Bottle sampled at Thomas W, thanks.
Short light brown head. Dark amber color, somewere between lager and a dunkel. Light aroma of Munic malt. The Munic malt also dominate the taste and give some residual sweetness.

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.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0,5l bottle. The label says Lager. Well it pours brown with reddish hue, off white foamy head and clear. Aromas are roasted malts, some grass and basement. Palate is thin watery , with flat carbonation. Mouthfeel is medium full. Taste is metallic, cardboard, roasted malts and sweeteners, with dirty dry lag on the tongue. Overall pretty mild, flat and boring Dunkel/Lager/whatever.
