Tap (Hovels, Dortmund) (6:4:6:4:12=3.2)
Quoth Anna: Cloudy orange with a creamy head. Little aroma, but what there is speaks of light grains and husks. The taste has more: a pleasant tingle, malts, a few general hops that build a bit in the finish. A hint of the München feel in this one too, which may be house style.
Quoth Phil: Reminds me of Beer Hous Pils - lovely fresh light grains, crisp light palate, refreshing, and nice fatty hops in the finish. The shared sip of Anna’s, warm, was better, when I got a cold one I’d only have given it 6:4:5:3:11=2.9 as the coldness mutes it significantly. Lovely hoppy unfiltered lager though.

Tap (Hovels, Dortmund) (6+:4:6+:4:13+=3.4+++)
Quoth Anna: Mahogany with nice head. Aroma has omething of a slightly more sour Sillamäe München but a bit sweeter. Taste is along the same lines but a bit drier, and the body isn’t as full..
Quoth Phil: Agree - aroma just like the sillamae munchen, including lacticity. Taste however, is much drier. Rich palate. Earthy bitternes and fresh resiny hop finish.
Quoth Anna: Another sample, sold at Chill’R as Hövels Alt Fairly dark brown beer topped with a healthy head. Aroma of sweetish dark malts, a relative of hazelnut. Also a bit of less sweet caramel. Lots of hazelnuts in the taste. I like hazelnuts. Pleasant bitter finish with nut papers in. A little fizzy at first. Good one.

Tap (Wenkers, Dortmund)
Deep red, maybe some haze, hard to tell. Shame, there’s some sourness in the aroma, quite a bit lactic and tons of strawberry jam. Full palate, smooth, sweet, you can feel its unfiltered. Plenty of sweet bready malts, not so much roast or burntness. More a dunkel than a schwarz. Hints of the offness in the taste too. But it’s good, such a shame about the state, I’d love this fresh I’m sure.

Pleasantly bitter with an underlying "hoppiness". Wonderful, foamy long lasting head. Pleasant, if somewhat lacking in complexity. Goes well with food.

Beautiful clear deep amber color with white head that lingers beautifully. Not much aroma but some cellar aromas and some grass/cereal. The taste is subtle and a light bitterness dominates with a light sweetness taking over in the finish. Afinetuned balance I think. I like it. Good level of carbonation.

On tap at the brewpub. The beer is nice clear yellow in the glass. Fresh grainy and easy to drink. Quite refreshing but not too deep. Smooth grainy and fresh aftertaste, slightly sweetish with hints of grain. For me a bit too sweetish in the aftertaste, refreshing though with s smooth and not too intense bitterness. Nice sessionable but not too deep.
