3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber; with good yellowish head. Caramel, cookies, bit of grass, coloured malts, malt syrup. Dry-herbal taste, with a point of caramel, but again very little or no sweetness. Faint leafy or chestnut flavour, but unfortunately empty finish. Light to medium bodied. Near no tactile sensations on the tongue. Again one that starts pretty strongly, but fades out fast. Thanks to Der Doppelbock!

Bottle, Best before July 27th, 2006 - Many thanks to Sebastian.
Clear, amber body. Off-white, creamy to fizzy head. Aroma of sweet, fine malts and yoghurt. Lightly bitter, lightly sweet initial flavour. Moderately bitter finish. Not bad. Quite tasty for a sunny afternoon at a patio in the German countryside.

(Bottle 33 cl) Pretty, deep amber without much head. Nice, dark malty feel with a good balance between sweet and bitter. Has a somewhat rustic "homebrewed" - but pleasant - character. 091002

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml flip-top bottle. Rich dark copper coloured beer with a thick tan head. Nice malty, bready aroma. Slightly sweet smelling with clean biscuity notes. Flavour is also very bready with an almost chewy maltiness. It is well balanced with some clean noble hop flavour and some lingering sweetness. Tasty brew.
