2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cereal, dusty, mustard seed and vegetable nose - funky! (but not necessarily good). Clear brown color and low head. Malty front but vegetable tastes - cabbage. Burnt roasted end. Thin and quick. Not so good.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Had this as Altbayreuther in a bottle. Clear dark red-brown body with a bubbly cream colored head that dissappears quite fast. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and coffee. Medium carbonation. Flavor of roasted malt, slightly acidic finish. No hops apparent in there.
The aroma promised more than the flavor could keep, so I agree with Pernille: overrated brew.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Very sweet and malty smell, reminds me of an Oud Bruin. Medium sized brown foamy head, brown body. Moderate bitter taste, average duration. Flat carbonation, medium body, dry texture.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle: "Altbayreuther Braunbier - Das Echte".) Sour aroma. Color is orangy brown. No head. Malty flavor with an acidic note. Overrated.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 ...

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.

Brun øl købt i Tyskland.
Meget flad, og karamelliseret. Sødlig.
Duft af karamel
