1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml Bottle. Pours a pleasant copper brown color with very little head. Aroma is weak but mostly sweet and little earthy. Taste is very weak - mostly candy sweetness with an ever so slight floral hop flavor. The weakest aspect of this beer was the palate and finishing. Vitually no carbonation to speak of, and what there was resembled soda pop fizz. The body was extreme light and had almost no aftertaste.

clear brown, smooth light brown head. head goes away quickly.
mild aroma of caramel, nuts, faint malts, very faint flowery or citrussy sourness, could easily be from hops.
flavor is mild malty, nutty, faint caramelly, good balance, ends with a pleasing nutty dark caramelly bitterness that morphs into a bitterhoppy finish. very good.

Bottle bought and drank in Beckum. Light amber brown color. Earthy, chocolate malts but not too sweet. Has a good dryness coming from hopping and roasted malts. Very nice. A good dunkel that is quite drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased @ Kaufland, Dortmund Germany. Pours a copper color with a decent head. No real lacing. Nose is roasted malts, some barely, and corn. Taste is enticingly smooth and decent. Nice bitter ends surround a nutty core, roasted, and a little chewy. Decent overall blend in the palate leaves this as "getting better." I wouldn’t mind stocking up on a 6er of it as it’s so cheap here in Germany.
