3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The beer pours amber in color with a big off-white head sitting on top.
S: Lots of yeast and bread notes up front. Plenty of caramel, toffee, and brown sugar sweetness with a pleasant fruitiness to it as well. Raisins and bananas are the most prominent fruits and there is a mild spiciness to it, too.
T: A similar array of flavors are present. A touch of alcohol warms things up and the dominant malt sweetness is really present throughout. Toffee and caramel work quite nicely with the banana, pear, and raisin flavors.
M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Really nice smooth feeling on the tongue with nice flavors and aromas.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2009 2007 Vintage, 2009 re-rate
Muddy reddish-brown colour and the glass is filled with chunks. The aroma is heavy malt, some liquorice and spice. Soft body shows some pleasant brown sugar notes and light spice. Rounded body is smooth until a bit of alcohol kicks in late. Not bad with a couple years on it. 2-6-7-3-14 = 3.2
Fresh version, 2005 re-rate: Golden-brown colour. Slightly spicy aroma. Metallic, slightly sweaty character. Spicy palate. Thin bodied and not at all enjoyable. Score for this rating.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Schöne Bernsteinfarbe! Ein malziger Genosse, bei dem man den Alkoholgehalt spätestens zum Ende hin deutlich schmeckt. Eigentlich lässt sich das Bier schön trinken und schmeckt zu jeder Zeit recht gut, auch wenn sich im Mittelteil eine leicht Wässrigkeit zeigt.

33 cL bottle. Aroma of caramel malt. Orangey amber color with fine bubbles, and an off-white head that laced a little. Medium body with mild, almost creamy, carbonation. There is instant heat, a light touch of darker fruits, and moderate caramel sweetness. It’s beautiful, but not so complex as many.
