2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Though the texture leaves much to be desired, there is a great aroma and some nice flavor here. Roasty, bitter hops and some fruity goodness that is a brew better than I thought it would be.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Copper red, clear. A bit sourish apple raisin nose. Body is light, caramel, apples, malt. Strange. I dont think the apple is intentionally there, its more like a vinous off flavour.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This closer to altbier than their altbier(Pinkus Munsterisch Alt) was. Some malt notes in the aroma and taste, minus the dark coffee bitterness of a Bavarian dunkel. Color is clear brown with short creamy beige head. Not sure if I would put this in the dunkel category or notm especially as it’s from Dusseldorf area.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy brown with a finger of off-white head. Good retention and essentially no lacing. Aroma is malty, nutty, caramel, alcohol. Flavor is sweet up front, malty and nutty, finishes malty and wheat/oat, hints of roasted tones. Strong malt throughout. Moderate carbonation, light body, and watery texture. Enjoyed the aroma and flavor but not the mouthfeel. A pretty tasty and very drinkable dunkel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours dark brown with a retentive light tan head. This one is the organic export variety. Aroma is burnt caramel. Taste is rich, charred malt, almost like a stout. Some brown sugar. Smooth palate and a refreshing finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Five Points Bottle Shop (Lumpkin) in Athens. Sweet roast malt aroma. Dark copper/oranage color. Sweetish, caramel initial / mild hops emerge in mid, giving some balance / smooth but bland finish. Thin body. Good enough, but quite restrained in all aspects. Maybe a decent session beer. This is nowhere nearly as good as their wheat beers.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From bottle to glass. Burnt sugar aroma, sort of like what you get off a creme brulee. Very malty and sweet smelling. Appearance is amber with a tan head. I’d call this one a sweet one relative to the German wheat and lager that I usually do. Very thin and smooth as hell. Overall, OK.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tief-dunkles Bernstein im Glas, ein Aroma nach Röstmalz mit fruchtigem Einschlag, im Antrunk vollmundig Röstmalzig mit leckerem Hopfen dosiert. Nicht zu süß und im Abgang eher trocken nach Holz und Tabak. Ein süffiges Dunkles mit gelungener individueller Note! Bis dato mein bestes Pinkus, ohne Zweifel!
