3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate. Bottle from Quinns.
Clean full on Amber colour with a well behaved off white head. Massively malty aroma with an almost sickly sweetness. Some rich farmyardy type thing going on too. Nothing like as sweet or sickly in the mouth and much better for it. Balanced and middle of the road. Still fairly sweet but certainly at a tolerable level. Clean mouthfeel. Well brewed and enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle that ogivlado got in Budapest and shared with me (thanks!)
Poured a slightly darker amber-orange body going brown. White head. The nose is dominated by a coffee/chocolate maltiness, quite surprising really. Nice light coffeeish taste, bit woody but coffee is the key word here. Light bitterness. Quite nice and enjoyable in the beginning but one dimensional and gets a bit tiring. Still, a pleasant surprise.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
0,5 l bottle, bought at Sörspecialista.hu, Budapest.
Poured reddish-golden with a small foamy lacing off white head. Aroma of caramel and some unmatured fermentation character with straw and sesame, some corn perfume. Medium bodied one with corn, some caramel....and the unmatured character again...Some sourish bottom-fermentation yeast taste, a bit of harsh hop. It could be better, i can feel the potent, but thjis stuff is not the best batch i think....And the beer is rather a Vienna, not a dunkel one!
