3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Malty nose and malty taste. Some caramel or toffee. Quite a long after taste. Very low carbonation, which makes it an easy drink. I could swear I’ve had one of these, which had much more carbonation. Very tasty anyway.

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.
