Shared a bottle at Plonk. My ventures into lager territory. Dark lager, has some flavour but still a bit mild on taste... not my style.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
BB 27.08.14. Poured a clear dark coppery brown colour with a two- to three-finger light tan frothy head that diminished quickly (compared to other Weihenstephaner beers tasted recently). Laced OK. Carbonation low with large bubbles. Aroma strongly of sweet malt with underlying faint molasses; all quite sweet. Taste mostly sweet caramel malt plus a hint of sweet fruits and also very subtle hops bitterness. Light body, a bit thin on the mouthfeel. Smooth, clean and with a slightly sweet finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared a 50cl bottle from Ruppert (Luxembourg). Pours a clear brown colour with not much of a head. Aroma is liquorice, lightly roast and caramel. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long dry and bitter end. Not so balanced. Overall, a strange beer but drinkable.

Bottle, 0,5l. Pours clear light brown color with creamy tan head and nice lacing. Week aroma of caramel and malts. Light flavor of roasted malts and caramel, with slightly dry finish. Medium carbonation. Highly drinkable, but not as good as some other beers from Weihenstephaner.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
OLD NOTES OCT 11, 2004
500ml Bottle. Aroma of burnt malt, sweet toffee and a bit of chocolate. Pours clear deep amberish brown body with solid off-white head. Decent flavour of caramel, slight chocolatey malt and with nutty and licorice flavours. The body tends to be a bit of the thin side. Overal it’s not too bad.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Colour of Daffyd Thomas’s "Bacardi & Cola", with a rough off-white head. The flavour is surprisingly bitter, with karamels lurking behind. Not too roasty, not too herbal. Just nice. The finish has an alcoholic touch of an old-timer asthma inhaler.
