(Draught at Paulaner’s im Spreebogen, Berlin, 20 July 2010) Dark reddish brown colour with brief, beige head. Malty, slightly roasted nose with notes of dark bread and raisins. Malty, toasty taste with dark fruit, dark bread and a mild spicy bitterness. Medium body, fairly sweet. Decent but a tad boring.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. An amber beer, clear as can be, and topped by a small and rapidly disappearing off-white head. Toffee, some dms and a hint of dried fruits in the aroma. Too weak. Not very pronounced flavor either, caramel and hay doing most of the job. Medium body with too much carbonation, quite dry. The finish has a decent bitterness to balance the caramel. Boring, but sure drinkable. 100423

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Kardstadt @ Dortmund City Centre. Pours a thin cola with a tan-cola like head. Good size and fair amount of lacing. Nose is roasted malts, brown sugar, pine notes and bread-like malts. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, some bitters, and decent bread notes. Not as "yeast packed" as I would have expected from Paulaner but decent. Rather thin on the palate but the balance, with what’s available, is ok. Was expecting more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Esplanade Bier Markt. Looks the part, and has a sweetish malty-nutty aroma. Wheat and fruit in the aroma, but not as much of the usual yeast additions as I was expecting. Some dark malt flavours as well, as in the aroma. I’d try this again.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet sugary and cereal aroma. Thins and brown color. Not that heavy on the palate, no the body is actually thin. Lingering bitterness and perhaps to sweet. Caramel and bread-like flavor with a hint of fruit. Not bad, but could be more.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught yesterday at the Paulaner tent at the Rujanfest in Zagreb. I reckon this is it. Brownish red body, small white head that went away relatively fast. Grainy malty nose. Sweet fruity maltiness falling somewhere between cooked plums and chocolate, clean and balanced but dull. No hop? Grainy aftertaste. Ok enough, can be called good, but doesn’t push my buttons.
