2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Brownish hued copper, clear, sudsy white head, sparce lacing.   Strong mealy nose, much worse than
its lighter Pils cousin.   This one really smells like pet food mixed with a rabbit cage.   And again, on the tongue
its not as bad as the nose suggests.   It remains rather mealy tho.   Has that signature dark malt flavor, and even
comes across as a very pale Doppelbock with its chewy breadiness.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Lingering
toasted malts and sweet alfalfa.   My advice, dont inhale too hard before drinking.   Otherwise you will be just

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown coloured body with some lighter amber tints and a bit of copper hues at the bottom, all with a one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of toasty malt, nuts, earth, caramel and a hint of concord grapes. Medium-bodied; Strong earthy maltiness noticeable with a good sweetness, some light spices and not much else. Aftertaste shows the malt with a hint of alcohol, some sweetness and a good mellow earthiness. Overall, a nice beer - can’t believe I never sampled this one, but well worth a drink, especially if you are eating some German food! I sampled this stubby (german style) 33 cL bottle purchased from Old Europe restaurant in Washington, DC for US$6.00 today on 23-March-2013.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From tap in a chinese restaurant in Nürnberg.
I should have taken another beer.
It pours brown reddish with almost no foam (off-white).
It smells and tastes a bit cara malt, with a sweet creamy final but very light. No bitterness, no body, no backbone, no length... an non interesting beer in German beer world.
