3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crushed at the Hessen Haus. Totally pleasant but nothing remarkable.
Pours a hazy dark brown without much head, and subsequently without much lace. A nice malty aroma has some sweetness and a little bit of coffee. The flavor is sweeter than it is dry and has pretty pronounced coffee characteristics. What I like about Pinkus is that they always seem to do something different, this is a very clear exception.

Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.

Meh. Not a lot of character and a little unclean. Watery and kinda fizzy. Passable at best.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, Stubbies & Steins. Hazy copper with thick bone-colored head. Diacetyl mars the aroma, which is also yeasty and sour but has some bready notes too. Weird sourness and a slick mouthfeel signal that this bottle may be off. I can tell there is a good brew under here but the sourness is killing it, it’s a shame.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle in half mas. Brown with lasting head and lace. Very caramel and bread. Toasted caramel flavor with lager grassiness and a tiny bit of wateriness. Medium-light body and carbo. For a Vienna, I think this is quite good. Overall, if you like carmel-tasting dark lagers, this is a good one. I’m enjoying it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is sweet and somewhat sour with grain, hay, grass, and herbs. The appearance is deep amber with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma with a cereal finish. The palate is thin but OK. Overall its a quality beer but I am just not into it. It reminds me of an Oktoberfest beer.
