3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Swing-top. Very inviting nutty aroma of caramel, yeast, toffee, and bread/pretzel malt. Orange-amber pour, head is beige. Medium bitterness and light sweetness. Breadish through and through, natural and earthy (composty?), ends very hoppily and with a touch of toast. Body’s a touch light, but the prickly spiciness / pepper helps. After my palate fully adjusts, it finds light fruitiness. Good character.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange brown color, creamy head. Swing top bottyle from MoritzF, with my thanks. Milky, caramelly buttery barnyard aroma. Same flavor with a nutty bitter aftertaste. Typical rural beer with a mouthfeel you’d expect form a farmhouse brewery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange-foxy beer; small pinkish-amberish head. Bit bready, pale malt & light-coloured malts; generally sweetish nose. Soft-sweet, nutty or chestnut flavours. Bit egg-bread like. Ends drier, bready, even dry leaves flavours. Light to medium bodied, all the same slight gristslickness. Not very distinctive, I’m afraid.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium head, lightish brown colour. Cool, malty aroma, with faint fruitiness. Full, harmonic, well-rounded malt taste with faint hints of roastiness. Aftertaste is mostly hops and faint roastiness, somewhat dry. A good session beer, but not too interesting.

Uhhh - I was disappointed here. Light brown color, mall rocky head. Sweet intense toffee nose. Terrible butter scotch taste - chemical. Yuck.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smells like buttered popcorn, deep amber color, tall foamy head. Tastes like buttered popcorn too. Some bourbon tastes, not so bitter. Didn’t really like this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark malty aroma.
Golden brown, big rocky golden head.
Honeyish malt with some gunpowder edges from the coloring malt.
Aromahop wrap everything of.
A beer with a distinctive identity - pleasantly different from the standarddunkel I meet so often here.
