50cl bb11/2014, Maruhn. It’s actually pinkish-brown, quite appealingly so. Nose of dull, caramelised, ethanol malt overdrive. Tste offers some more caramel, shy dry wild honey, wood, and else meagerly little in return for its 8% toll except a lingering herbal hop bitterness. Hm.

Ruusuinen väri, niin kuin nimikin kertoo. Alkumaku aivan jees, mutta himpun katkera loppu. Illan heikoin. Musavisan voitto.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (BB Jan 2015). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread/grain), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), with notes of whiskey and alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
A more drinkable beer than the Maerzen, despite the higher alcohol...better balanced specifically. Kinda whiskey-ish too...overall simple nose but admittedly enticing.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 500ml. An orange clear beer with a frothy head. Aroma is of dry fruits and alcohol. Maybe a hint of bananas. Taste is bitter at the beginning but not afterwards. It has an alcohol finish and is slightly dense at the end. Unlike the other german beers, it is not very drinkable (I can´t imagine myself drinking huge amounts of this beer).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 500ml. Pours clear copper/orange with a creamy tan head with decent retention. Aroma is subtle, of caramel, spices, toffee, honey, cereal, dry fruits, alcohol, doughy yeast and maybe even some sour hints. Rich, with a medium to heavy body. Strong malt backbone well matched with alcohol, but bitterness is discreet towards the finish. Strong, warming beer.
