6/19/03, draft, Berlin. I've noticed that everything is better in an enjoyable context - in this case a wonderful German restaurant with good company. Dark brown lager, almost opaque with large white head. Aroma is heavily toasted malts, caramel, apple, oranges and balancing hops. Roasted sweet malt flavor with honey, smoke and citrus. Medium body and creamy in the mouth.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Faint roasted malt aroma. Opaque body. Large, light-brown head; mostly lasting. Good lace. Very light flavor for a dark beer. Has that non-pasteurized, yummy German draft beer finish. A little too light in body, but worth a quaff.

Near black with rich beige head. Coffee aroma. Dry and a bit roasty, although perhaps not as malty as I would like. Medium bitterness. A decent example of the style.

drank it from the can so my appearance rating may be off a little. but a simple enough style that a glass shouldnt make all that much difference. i foudn this one pretty good. malty and smooth. started out a little rough but got smoother as it warmed.
