3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to motelpogo and loni for this one, who thought of me in my beer exile in Australia. Red-brown, clear, nice creamy off-white head. Big nutty malt smell, like freshly baked bread. Smell is as malty as a bock. Taste is quite straightforward - salty, chewy brown bread crusts - but with a surprising level of hop flavour. You can’t taste the hops in themselves that much but they’re definitely there, contributing dryness more than anything else. Very long, nutty, malteser finish with a 25-30IBU sort of bitterness.This reminded me of Mikes Mild strangely enough - big nutty malt taste but dry and light. Simple but wholesome beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Light brown colour.Cookie malt aroma. Malt-accented taste with a caramelly touch. Rather sweetish.
Hints of hoppiness in the finish. Quite decent and somewhat different from a dunkel.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Some fruity aromas to this beer and the color is right but I got some off flavors of earthy and off ketones or esters. Maybe I got a bad batch as this had to go down the drain.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark amber/brown with a small tan head. Caramel and malt on the nose. Smooth and light malt on the tongue. Decent but nothing to write home about.

Looks brown, poor head. Ugly. Taste pretty malty and sweet. Dark bread flavours apart of the sweetness. Finish malty and aftertaste, too. Medium body. If you like roasted malt ...
