2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
First of this style. I really don’t what to expect. Beer sprayed everywhere when I opened. Poured a nice medium brown with a frothy tan head which had some retention. Aroma was a mix caramel notes and a grassy note. Flavor was somewhat sweet and some grassy/floral. Body was rather thin. Hops seemed absent, but maybe they’re supposed to be.

Mahogany-red with a nice head and a sweetish, malty flavour and aroma. The flavour also has notes of caramel and it’s pleasantly full and smooth. 2409

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2007 On tap at Berliner Bierfestival. It was served with a clear, copper body, topped by a creamy, beige head. That was probably the best part of the beer. It wasn’t bad, far from, but maybe a bit boring, especially on the nose. The aroma was both a bit weak, and a bit one-dimentional, with caramel and hops, and not much more showing up. It had malt and caramel in the mouth as well, but there was a nice fruity touch to accomplish the medium mouthfeel. It finished malty. Although it is a bit anonymous, it’s a quite nice beer.

Had the beer from bottle the day after, and that was a far better experience. The pour was the same, a clear, copper body and a nice, beige head. The aroma and flavor was far better though, with caramel, well roasted bread, yeast-notes and a little fruityness. The flavor had caramel, dark bread, sweetness and a bitterness. It finished with caramel, bread-crusts and some bitterness. Medium body with maybe a bit too much carbonation, but not in a bad way. A lovely, dark landbier. (070804)

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml flip-top bottle. Deep dark amber/brown beer wit a thick creamy tan head. Really great looking pour. Malty aroma with a fresh breadiness and soft whole wheat toasty character. Light rye spiciness. Very rich without a lot of sweetness. Soft but insistent bitterness behind the sweet fresh malts. Lightly minerally with a soft smokiness as well. Very tasty brew. We need more of these bottle-conditioned lagers.
