3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Whidbey Beer Works. Pours amber with a foamy white head. Strong malty aroma, but mellow and caramel. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Lightly caramel with a good dose of hop bitter for flavor. The level of bitter makes it a very tasty beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, 500ml, from Real Supermarket, Bamberg. Amber with white head. Looked good, but the flavours were somewhat disappointing, there was a wet cardboard taste initially, leading to a flattish caramel malt taste. A touch on the sweet side with a little roasty coffee note in the finish. More challenging than it should have been, but ok in the end.

bought 17oct. 2008 el corte ingles, palma, rated mar 31 2009. best before 3-jun-2009.
clear yellow, small thick white head.
hoppy, but also a bit earthy aroma.
flavor is a bit alcoholic, sweet and dark caramelly. reminds me of a grolsch i once tasted that was few months after best before date. ends sweet. i’ll have to rerate a fresh sample, as this bottleed one was not tasting good, i think it aged badly or have had too much heat at some point.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, bought @ METRO, Kolding.
Pours clear golden with a nice, creamy, off-white head. Fine, light lacings. Aroma is rather grainy, light hay and some sweet, unfermented malts. Light carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is light sugary, bready malts. The finish is fine and hoppy with grass, hay and a little pine. Still too sweet, though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber color. Cake dough aroma. Malty sweetish flavor with biscuits, just a touch of hops. I expected to taste fruity esters, but they are hardly there. But this is a well balanced, full bodied and malty beer in the best Bavarian tradition.
