2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
German wheat beer tends to be a delight, but not this time. Dark wheat beer with a bland smell of malt and yeast, the taste is also malty and boring. You could probably have guessed it on the bottle ugly with screw cap.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml screwtop bottle: clear brown with orange highlights. Smallish beige head. Not a lot of carbonation in this bottle. Moderately malty aroma along with a touch of balsalmic vinegar. Flavor is nicely hopped with a lingering sweetness in the finish. Notes of caramel and yeast. Good.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Yummy! Poured into .5 l bier glass, deep brown reddish hues, with moderate carbonation. Almost no head on pour, and nothing once the beer has settled. Roast grains flavor come through on first taste, with minimal aftertaste. Not heavy at all....light in the mouth. Goes good with some good German winter food.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Germany. Translucent and reddish-amber in color with a booming, dense, and a nearly two-inch tall, fluffy tan head. Chestnuts, prunes and a smocking caramel current lead-off the aroma, pursued by milky cocoa butter, chocolate-covered hazelnuts, ginger toffee and allspice flecked on copper kettles. Rewarding flavor of caramel-dipped apples (country style), dry cocoa bricks, and butter pecan with a dry, light baker’s chocolate quality. Dark skinned, non-juicy prunes insert a pragmatic fruit note. Apple-cinnamon butter on raisin bran muffins. Mild carbonation brings me back to Bavaria, along with its medium-bodied mouth feel and a somewhat thicker viscous tract. Solid relationship of caramel, chocolate and Munich malts with a distant, supportive and regal approach to noble hopping. Caramel-chocolate-apple toffee chew cubes come out in the finish along with some cocoa prunes for added pleasure.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Red-brown, small head but durable enough. Aroma is caramel, coffee, earthy, woody, lightly burnt malts, a bit metallic. Taste is a bit watery, slightly burnt, woody-flowery elements, light to moderate bitter. Boring.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep, clear brown-red with a short and off-white frothy head. Malty aroma of dark bread and oatmeal, followed by toffee, dried herbs and honeycomb. Sweet and clean overall. Bready malt flavour with some light coffee sans roast bitterness. Clean, drying towards the end. Soft and herbal. Medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation.
