3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
lawson’s finest dunkel. 22oz bottle from a recent trade.batch 166, bottle number 19... pours a semi-murky reddish amber brown pour with a thin film of frothy white head.
aroma: banana and grains mostly. nothing overly complex for that matter
flavors are wheaty, almost with some faint lemon, with banana coming through towards the middle on through the finish. prickly lively carbonation with a semi-thin body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nose is caramel maltiness, a little banana & clove, some apple, a little unami. Flavor is slightly grapey malt, a bunch of alcohol astringency, some clove, a little too bitter. Finish lacks depth and has some apple with a little old nuttiness.

Nice fresh, doughy malt, and light golden fruit/grape nose. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter with dough, light honey, some golden raisins and a bit of champagne on the finish. Pretty nice.
