3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half litre flip-top bottle, poured into pint glass. Amber colour, hazy, large foamy off white head. Retention was outstanding. Aroma was cranberry, malt and dark chocolate, really had to think of a Dubbel or Doppelbock. Tasted cranberry, malt, dark chocolate and molasses. Only drawback was that it was slightly watery. Hints of slightly smokey malt in the finish. Smooth texture, decent carbonation, slightly heavy body but it worked. Only the fact that it was slightly watery held it back from being truly outstanding.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Swing-top bottle 50cl. (from drinks-of-the-world.de). Clear medium to dark amber color, small but steady frothy off-white head, diminishes slowly, good lacing; sweet malty nose, strong banana, bit vanilla; taste medium sweet and light bitter, toasted malts, nuts; medium body, watery to oily texture, soft carbonation, light sweetbitter aftertaste, light spicy and fruity notes; aroma promises a lot but alas not followed accordingly by taste and aftertaste, both on the thin side.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear full amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel, with notes of hops and yeast and touches of fruit. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with sweetish notes of caramel malt and estery touches. Lively carbonation, but the body is rather watery. Slightly bitter but mild aftertaste with hints of yeast. Very easily drinkable but nothin really special.

In der Farbe Bronzen, Schaum perlt leider sofort weg. In der Nase malzig, im Geschmack sehr karamellig, süß, etwas Banane ist auch dabei. Süffig, mir aber etwas zu süß.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tall flip-top half-liter bottle, BBD 25th Oct 14, my second bier of my German night on 25th July 14: obtained from Beers of Europe and poured into a large ’Wolnzacher Brauhaus handled jug.
Bright and clear amber body with a full off-white crown on top. Yeasty and caramel nose with a taste to match, semi-sweet and malty: this is my sort of brew. I make no secret about the fact I prefer the maltier sweeter brews generally and this fits the bill perfectly for me, it’s a joy to drink. Fresh and out of a well kept barrel it must be heaven, I might have to visit Zwiesel one day.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Pours dark golden colour. Lighter than you'd think - a strange mix of flavours but very nice - banana, bread, a bit peppery, a bit citrusy. A very good beer
