1 Pt. 0.9 Fl. Oz. Flip top Bottle. Poured clear dark amber with a medium head. Aroma is very malty combined with some fruits and grains. Taste starts quite sweet, from malts and fruits some yeast (bread flavor) to it too towards the end you’ll feel some smokiness and bitterness. Leaves you a dry aftertaste. Nice and drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2013 50cl fliptop, pours deep reddish brown with a fine pinky-beige head, aromas of sweetish bready malt plus a little smoke and plum, then an initially rich and malty flavour segues into a bitter biscuity body with smoke, earth and grass hop notes, before finishing with a dry-bitter edge, still with a smoky edge. Very nice.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by nuplastikk...thanks Greg! - Pours light amber with a ring of white head. Really sweet and yeasty nose--it’s a little over the top. Sugary caramel, with hints of molasses. Can still smell the pale malt and some floral hopping. Taste is the same, with some mineral on the finish and some tropical fruit notes. Slick and medium in the mouth with very little carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml flip top bottle. Here is a weird one for you. Sort of has the brown chocolate baker tones of a dunkel, with the light, bland malt tones of a dark lager. Not really so expertly executed, also doesn’t seem so fresh. Sort of has that cheap Eastern European thing going on. Not impressive at all, boring, cheap, extract tasting dark lager.

500mL bottle. Poured a lovely shade of deep amber with a dense, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, redder fruits and nutty malts with fresh, earthy grains beneath.. quite enjoyable. The flavor found buttery red fruits and light, tangy wheat over soft nutty and bready notes.. finished with a good blend of fruits and nutty malts. Light-medium bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. a little slick at times.. overall a very good beer.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. After pouring this one in it starts very easy, malty - in a way a sweetish Alt can be. But after it goes down your throat you smell and taste that awful roasted or smoked malt. Digusting.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Deep brown colour with steady head. What comes like a Landbier / Zwickl ends in an awful smoked beer. When I like first one, I really don’t like the last one. So it tastes of smoked sausages, burnt nuts, sauerkraut and smoked garlic. Not my kind of beer at all.

Pours a clear red with 2 fingers of rocky white head. Decent retention and a little lacing. Aroma is predominantly malty, with nutty, bread/dough, and vegetal tones. Very malty throughout. Soft carbonation and light body. Reminds me of altbier. An enjoyable brew.
