3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottled, I do not know why (and I am very mush disappointed with that fact) the beer is not what I saw in the pub there in this charming little town in Germany (there I saw the dunkel the lads here are talking about) but this is a lager !!!!!!!! :(, Unfortunatelly then-2 days ago I was the designated driver and didn’t taste a sip. Coming back to rating...It is quite good though, very nice fresh malt and alc note both in aroma and taste, It is very fresh you can feel it very clear. Probably not older than 2-3 weeks

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Der Schwanen Brauhaus, Ebing, Frankonia. A red brown beer with big white head. Get into the countryside, get better beer, that was what I was told, so we did and this was a good start. Initially there were heavy, rich treacley notes with a bit of a smokiness in the malt (Rauch like?) and I did get a bit of smoked ham, woody flavours thrown in. The finish managed to get into the dry and bittering category, a very interesting beer.
