3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 500ml. A clear brown colour with a good head. A malty aroma. Taste is burnt malt (tastes very much like raw, dark malted barley) with a slight underlying hoppiness which adds a hint of citrus to lighten the brew up a little. Light carbonation. Doesn’t seem much like a dunkel, but a nice brew anyhow.

The bottle looks really good, better than the other Paulaner-bottles. The beer in the glass also. Flavor very strong in the beginning, in the end much too malty - nasty!

50 cL bottle, as Paulaner hefe weissbier dunkel. Pours hazy brown with a dense white head. Mild malty and wheaty/fruity aroma. Classic wheat flavour swept in a nice bed of caramel malt flavours which take out most of the banana and bubblegum notes. Ends with a mild malt lingering flavour.

0.5L draft at a small little restaurant in Munich. Delicious brew – strong banana/bubblegum/clove esters that you seek in a quality Dunkel. Excellent sweet malty notes and a nice finish. The beer just rolls across your palate and delights along the way. Fabulous. I wish that this was available on draft in the USA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from Fleggaard, Süderlügum, DE. Pours a nice nut-brown with a creamy, but rather small beige head. Sweet aroma, some degree of caramel, a little touch of roasted. Flavour is equally sweet, caramel-based with a little roasted again. There is a lingering chocolate at the end. Sadly there is some metallic tones in there as well. Aftertaste is very long and lingering.
