2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From tap at the brewpub (on tap as Dunkles). Pours brown with a white lacing head. Caramel and light roasted malt aroma, slight butterish. Sweet flavour, a bit like toffee. Has clear malt notes and caramel in a sweet blend. Finish is soft and slight breadish, but sweet. Not bad, but just too sweet to be great. Shows some great lacework on the glass, I couldn’t finish it so I don’t know how it compares to the helles.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2003 Sampled draught at the brewpub.
Orange brown, hazy. Medium bodied. Toasty and appley. Rather sweet with rounded soft mouthfeel. Some salty hops in the finish. Excessive apple and cellar flavour makes me think of old Soviet style lagers.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Naturbier. Poured a deeper reddish-brown with a short, creamy beige head. Sweet toasted caramel along with.. well.. not much else in the aroma.. perhaps a touch of lighter fruits peeked through. The flavor had a bit more going on than the aroma indicated.. toasty caramel and some darker fruits at the base with a mild herbal bitterness.. OK. Lighter-bodied on the palate and very dry.. somewhat sweet.. short, toasty finish.

Tap at the brewpub. Light aroma. Cloudy brown, lacing off-white head.
Good roast start, nice fruity notes quite Bavarian balance with grassy and light earthy hops. great chewy body miles away from the standard Spanish fare. Refreshing and pleasant. Gets the location bonus as well.
