1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle in trade from IowaHerkeye. Thanks!
Pours amber with tons of floaties suspended throughout the beer. Fizzy white head. Smell is bright and off, like the beginning of an infection, perhaps. Otherwise, caramel and some wheat. Taste is oxidized, metallic and caramelly wheat. Overly fizzy body. Not very good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
About a 1 inch thick head of medium sized bubbles. Interesting aroma with some oranges, cauliflower, wheat and corn. Some sweet malts also. Color is a cloudy dark orange. Lively in the mouth with some roasty notes. Sweet malts and some grainy feeling on the palate. More vegetal notes. Finishes sweet malty and a bit dry. I am indifferent to this brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours with a cloudy, amber body topped by a thick, off-white head with some lacing left behind. The flavor and aroma are subtle with sweet, malty notes and a hint of banana yeast notes. Not much else to it. Light to medium bodied and smooth.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was lighter than what i expected for a dunkel, but very tastey nonetheless. Pours a hazey, clouded orange body with a pleasent fruity aroma. Well balanced, not overly malty with a smooth crisp sweet finish.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I accidently poured the gunk in so it’s amber honey with a bit of dark sludge floating. The head throws itself high into the air filling my tall pillsener glass. Aromas of sweet and sour sauce. Full nectar with mild yet ample carbonation. Rich and malty with sweet aged citrus, medicine, tropicals like kiwi, wood, and nectarines. The finish is long with lingering sweetness and a bit of acidity.

12oz bottle. Light copper color. Sweet aroma of bananas. Flavor is light and airy (like an angel food cake). Straight up, balanced. No major characteristics. Just an easy drinker.
