Clear dark orange/amber, head didn’t last. Could smell malt and hops. Also grassy and maybe fruity. Sweet taste, with a little bitter. Above average carbonation and thin/light texture. Not what I expected from the appearance.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2013 Poured from a bottle purchased in Nuremburg area. Poured roughly into german .5 l glass. Beautiful orange, copper color, ample carbonation. Minimal head fades to skin quickly. In the mouth, feels like it will have some bite or bitterness, but none to be found. Taste is very smooth, almost pilsener like, unexpected for such a dark beer.Much lighter in taste than expected, just a hint of bitterness on the back of the tongue. Caught off guard with this one, not bad, but different from expectations.

The head is unstable. It smells grassy-hay, hoppy. The taste is a bit roasty and hoppy. Drinkable 9/8/10/10/10/9

0,5l bottle. Pours dark amber. Thin head, stays. Sweet malty aroma. Malty, roasted, one could even say mild smokiness in flavor. Buttery, dry dark chocolate in the end. Weird beer in a good way.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tiszta, átlátszó borostyán színű. A hab tört fehér és kevés. Illata száraz, kompós szénsavas jegyek tódulnak az orrba.
Élénk a sör és vékonyka testű sok banános utóízzel. Mint ahogyan illatában ízében is a száraz komlósság dominál. Végén enyhén savanykás és tompa a befejezése.

In bottle at Ventoux. Pours a dark golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of grassy hops, caramel and biscuity malt. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Nicely bitter and very drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Copper colour, clear, large thick tanned head. At first it had a nice grassy malty aroma but this faded quickly. The first mouthfull was decent and tasted malty and grassy but it quickly lost it’s taste and by the end was close to being undrinkable. Only thing decent about this beer was the mouthfull which wasn’t too bad but other than that it was very poor. I’d say its more Dunkel than Maerzen.
