3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Cloudy chestnut pour with an off-white head. Smells like the "normal" Paulaner Hefe, perhaps a bit sweeter. Also tastes like the "normal" Paulaner but with a shot of malt complexity. Can’t say this is necessary. Still, a good choice - delicious.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2008 Bottled. Amber, with a huge white head. Aroma is sweet and banana. Flavor has some spices to it too. Quite sweet on the palate. Nice, but not world-class. Rating: 5-4-6-3-14-3.2. (051209)
Bottled. Hazy, amber with a huge off-white head.Aroma is banana, caramel-sweetness, coriander and yeast. The flavor has caramel and butterscotch. Light fizzy and sweet body with a dry finish coming stronger towards the very end. (060225)

500ml bottle, from Beers of Europe. (BBE 30 November 2005, drunk October 2005). I can’t say this did a great deal for me. But I must admit that I do generally find German dark beers a touch uninspiring. I think I expect the darker colour to contribute a fuller body and greater depth of flavour than their paler equivalents, but often the difference is marginal. In fact its not very dark, but an attractive coppery colour with a lasting white head. The aroma is wheaty (not surprisingly) with more lemon than banana and I thought I picked up a slightly smoky edge. Lemon carries through on to the palate. Quite sharp with a tinny edge. Thinnish mouthfeel. OK, but nothing special. Perhaps a bit long in the tooth.
