3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer was brought back by some friends who went to Germany. Poured a light amber color and had a big head and left some nice lacing on the glass. The aroma was mostly a wheaty smell with a little lemon. The flavor was much like the aroma - a wheat taste with a hint of lemon but it has a certain bitterness about it that most of this type don't. Not bad at all.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I know this beer well. It was available until some months ago in the supermarket in Nordhorn for only $ 0,30 a bottle or so. It has all the characteristics of a good schwarzbeer (roasty, coffeish flavors, deep black color) but it is a bit thin. Mine was brewed in Gotha, not in Oettingen. Still great value for money.

Great schwarzbier! Nice roasted, light coffee aroma. Black colour, off-white frothy head, very nice lace. Creamy, well roasted flavors with coffee and chocolate. Good body for a schwarzbier. Also brewed by Oettinger Brauerei in Oettingen where my bottle came from.
