1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured from a 500ml bottle into an English pint glass. Pours a lighter brown color with a thick head of light beige foam. Acceptable lacing. The aroma is weird. Its cheesy and lemony, with a touch of vanilla. It really doesn’t smell very appealing. Taste is really odd. Its overly sweet and has a sort of repulsiveness that tries to mask itself as palatable. After several sips, it isn’t gettting any better. This one is going down the drain.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with McTapps, What is that ? A Dunkel ? A Dunkles Weizen ? Hard to say. Dark malt dominating in look and taste. Nothing special at all. Just drinkable.

Bottle from bottle shop nearby and shared with MichaelBruch. Unclear dark brown in colour with low head. Taste of sour milk in a coffee, sun-burnt grass and green nuts. Some light taste of Doppelbock although it only has 5,3 % alc ;-)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle - pours murky brown with vanishing offwhite head and thin lacing. Nose is caramel, toffee and berries. Flavor adds brown sugar. Moderately sweet. Thin to medium texture. Sweeter than expected. Basement aromas come about as it warms. Refreshing and interesting enough.

No es una mala cerveza pero no destaca en absolutamente nada.
Tiene la gracia de que es difícil de encontrar.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, dark reddish brown. Dissipating thin head. Aromas of sweet, syrupy malt - toffee, bread, nuts, syrup. Taste is similar - really very sweet and chewy. A bit like an english mild in some ways. Little finish. Okay, but too sugary.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tart aroma--underripe cranberries. It has virtually no head, no lacing, and looks like muddy water. Has a sour, malty flavor with weak carbonation. Leaves the tongue rough. There are far better dunkels out there, and this one has little going for it.
