Sonnenbräu Bockbier 2.7
58cl crown-top bottle. Grainy nose. The beer starts malty with grainy hints. Not too complex but easy to drink. The grainy aroma remains, hints of sweetness, not much bitterness. Round and smooth. Sweetish-grainy in the aftertaste.

Sonnenbräu Doppel-Bock 3.1
50cl swing-top bottle. Grainy nose. The beer starts fresh and malty. The alcohol is well hidden, but the body has too much grain. Easy to drink, hints of malt, moderate sweetness and sweetish grain.

Sonnenbräu Lager Hell 2.8
I drank this beer after my job, coming from Italy. It is a drinkable lager and we feel that we are close to Austria. The foam stays a good moment and the colour is a classical yellow lager. The carbonation is average. We smell at the noise and the mouth the corn, some malt and few hop. The final sensation is a bit disappointing, there is the alccol or a bit metallic. You have to drink this beer cold.

Sonnenbräu Maisbier (Rheintaler Ribelgold) 2.4
Pale yellow color with thin foam ring. The smell is shy and has hints of wet malt. The taste is a tiny bit boring with corn and malt notes and a surprising fresh light bitter taft touch. Dryish malty aftertaste.

Sonnenbräu Annett’s Büezer 2.3
Herber, mild würziger Beginn. Nicht besonders malzig, auch sonst sind die Aromen zurückhaltend und dumpf. Leicht bitter, mit der Zeit ein wenig intensiver werdend. Okay. 6/7/8/7/8/7

Sonnenbräu Jubiläums-Bier 1891 Dunkel 3.1
Nice dry malty body. Hints of malty sweetness, but a nice malty bitterness, that is long and round. Not too sweetish, malty-round, nice dry but sadly not too deep. Fresh, malty dry with hints of sweetish malt and caramel.

Sonnenbräu Weizengold 3.3
Smooth malty Weizen beginning. The yeast is not too fruity, more clove than banana. Moderate bitterness, fresh, but not too deep. Nice yeast, fresh with hints of bitterness in aftertaste. Smooth and round, hints of sweetness. Nice but the yeast-profile could be a bit more complex.

Sonnenbräu Ice Beer 2.3
Neutral sweetish beginning. Nearly neutral with hints of malt and a bit of bitterness in the aftertaste. Malty, sweetish, pale aftertaste. Boring and neutral. Sad but what it wants to be.

Sonnenbräu Streiker 3.2
Sweetish-dry beginning. More soft Pils and not as sweet as their "Maisbier". Nice bitter (but a bit bitter neutral) finish, malt, soft corn sweetness. The aftertaste is malty and smooth sweetish with a low and a bit neutral bitterness. Nice.

Sonnenbräu Panaché 3
Nice, lemon-beer beginning. Not too sweetish, nice round and fresh lemon. The lemonade is not too artificial, the beer not too low. Malty smooth beer body with lots of fresh lemonade. Only the aftertaste you taste the artificial sweetener used. A bit rough ending with a lemon-sweetener beer ending on the tongue with no bitterness. Nice Radler though.

Sonnenbräu Rheinperle 3.3
Nice typical crisp Pils-beginning with hints of sweetness. Nice dry body with a nice (but neutral) bitterness in the end. Round and fresh with a bit too sweetish body for a crisp Pils. Great and full-bodied, deep and typical. Nice Pils!

Sonnenbräu Lager Light 1.3
58cl Flasche. Das Bier beginnt leicht getreidig, nicht zu tief aber süffig. Süßlich mit leicht alkoholfreien Tendenzen, brotig-süßlich. Geschmacklich genauso (schlecht) wie ein alkoholfreies. Schade. Süßlich brotiger Nachgeschmack mit einer deutlich bitteren, aber neutralen Herbe. Das Ganze wirkt chemisch und unrund – wie als wenn man normalem Bier die Hälfte des Alkohols entzogen hätte – und dafür brauche ich kein Leichtbier trinken! Auf dem Etikett wird erwähnt, dass das Bier mit niedrigem Stammwürzegehalt gebraut wurde – das Bier jedoch schmeckt eher entalkoholiert – leider. Schade!

Sonnenbräu Alkoholfrei 1.3
Das Bier beginnt leicht säuerlich-brotig. Recht neutral mit der typischen alkoholfreien Brotigkeit und Süße. Neutrale Bittere im Nachgeschmack. Der einzige Unterschied zum Sonnenbräu Leicht ist der fehlende Körper – ansonsten ziemlich ähnlich – viel zu brotig und mit einer viel zu intensiv-rauen, penetrant neutralen Herbe und süße. Schade...

Sonnenbräu Maisbier (Rheintaler Ribelgold) 2.6
Süßlich mildes Bier. Typische Maisaromen, dennoch deutliche Herbe. Süßer süffiger Körper, würzig, komisch süßlich, moderat bis penetrant herb im Nachgeschmack. Unrund, aber dennoch sortentypisch mit Maisaromen. Nicht mein ding aber gut gemacht!

Sonnenbräu Zwickelgold 2.5
Das Bier beginnt würzig-malzig. Leichte Herbe vorhanden, süßliche malziger Körper. Würzig, Malz, im Nachgeschmack milder werdend und fast ohne Herbe ausklingend. Süßlich würzig ohne Tiefgang und etwas rau. Schade.

Sonnenbräu Rosenbier 1.7
Golden to bright orange color, clear; stable white head - Aroma of Roses, Cereal, Bread, elder-flower, melissa, citrus - very (artificially) sweet taste, just a very slight bitterness in the finish - Light body, crisp, almost aggressive mouthfeel, soft carbonation. One would think it’s some kind of lemonade if it wasn’t labelled as a beer.
