4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle… February in Franconia (2011)… This beer rocks!… Clear, brilliant copper lager with a huge, frothy, white that slowly diminishes to a small, creamy, tight cap which remains afloat throughout consumption. The bouquet is toasty, doughy and lightly nutty - so reminiscent of mashing day inside a brewery – boiling wort… ahhh yesss. The hops are subdued, but smell earthy and spicy. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. The flavor offers sweet, toasty and doughy notes along with flavorful, spicy hops – low bitterness. Finishes lightly sweet and toasty with only a tinge of bitterness. World class dunkel in my book! Thanks go out to erlangernick and Koelschtrinker for making this month of Franconian lagers possible!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2011 Szép és tiszta borostyános szín, világos barna habbal. Maláta majd kellemes tejeskávé illat de ez csak 8-10 perccel a kitöltés után lesz konkrét. Kicsit savanykás komlós íz.
Harmonikus, laza sör.
Lehetne aromásabb, sűrűbb...

Bottle looks simple, but really good. Beer in the glass also. Dark, really nice head. Starts malty, a bit roasty, hints of caramell and chocolate. Finish is milder, notes are not so intense. Very drinkable and really a great beer!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. A clear, copper-colored beer topped by a small, off-white head. Malty, caramel nose with some meaty notes and fruityness. The flavor has some caramel, a little hoppy giving fruityness and bitterness. Slightly piney and metallic finish. Medium body. Definitely not my choice of dunkel. 100813

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint bottle, thanks to Ruth. Pours a dark copper with a white head and plenty of carbonation. Beer continues to release CO2 throughout. Aroma is a caramel malt with a doughy yeast smell. Hop content is relatively low, but this beer goes down smooth and leaves you wanting another sip. Great beer overall.

Bottle at the Priory Arms, London on 4th August 2010. Pours clear copper with a white foam head and little lacing. Malt and smoke aroma, blend of malt, cheese, grass hop and woodsmoke in main kick before a bittersweet finish on a textured, full mouthfeel. Easy drinking and pleasant.
