2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Getreidig-karamelliger Beginn, wobei diese beiden Aromen aber nicht sonderlich gut zusammenarbeiten. Herb-muffig, modrig alt wirkendeMalzigkeit, dazu auch noch wässrig. Brotiges Finish. 10/7/8/7//7

This one is preety good as well from this out of the way pub. Nice looking beer that is for sure. Taste is a bit off for me but it is good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. This beer like the Helles has a very mixed bag of ratings. Again I think the brewmaster is playing around with the process. This beer poured a cherry brown clear color, with a nice soft tan head. A fine looking beer. Aroma is roasted malt and dark fruit. Taste is more roasted malt, and sweet fruit. Palate is dry with some sweetness. I think that this was their best beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Not a good beer in my opinion. Looked great but the beer taste was bad. I wish I could put my finger on it. Maybe just an infected batch.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber brown with 1-2 finger off-white head. Sweet smelling, notes of brown sugar and vanilla. Taste is strong vanilla and hops. Short to medium bitter finish. Very smooth with medium carbonation. Refreshing. Very nice brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a staple dunkel but it does follow the style nicely. Moderate carbonation, very light hop presence and a carmel/wheat flavor. This looses alot of points because it’s not consistant. I’ve had it at times when it’s a 4 and at other times if flat and sweet tea like. Get the Hells

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub
Beautiful copper color. It has a light, perfumy caramel aroma and a sweetish caramel flavor. The caramel and some hop manage to give a reasonably bitter final. Balanced even if a bit simplistic.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is a decent dunkel’s from Zills. It had a slight after taste and had a hazy brown color. Not the best dark I’ve had.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewery. Based on other raters it looks like this beer changes greatly between batches. It seemed just seemed rather average, seemed a touch thin/watery and not really exciting to me. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t anything to search out.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap, had no aroma at all, and was a amber red color. It did taste like tea with a little alcohol kick.
