Doughy malty nose, deep copper-brown color. Light caramelly malt with some raisin flavor. Broad oaky bitter. Medium body with a crisp texture, though the mouthfeel was a little soapy. OK, but not so special.

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.

Medium white rocky head, which leaves legs on the glass, on the dark brown colored brew.Slightly sulphury nose with an intense clay aroma. Toasted malt taste, nutty - kind of weak body though.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kastanienbraun mit feinporigem Schaum. Etwas lieblich-malzig im Geruch. Der Antrunk ist sehr weich und wiederum lieblich-malzig. Der Abgang ist nicht so gut ausgeprägt wie beim Festbier aus gleichem Hause. Insgesamt ein braunes Lager, dass sich schnörkellos gut trinken lässt, ohne bleibenden Eindruck zu hinterlassen.

500ml bottle: poured amber with a full sized white head. Light malt and hop nose. Reminds me of Sam Adams lager but not as flavorful. Mild yeast in the flavor with a bit of hops. Good clean drinking lager that I really enjoyed.
