3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The color of this beer is cloudy deep copper with a large off-white head that fades to a thin layer on top, and the aroma combines the scents of sweet bread malts, slight clove, and a hint of soured fruit. The taste is quite sour and slightly sweet, and the palate combines a thin and slick texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish, and a light body.

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.
