Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass, amber with a medium beige head. The aroma was light and dominated by malt. The taste was smooth and dominated by roasted malt with a touch of caramel. Very smooth. Nice beer for this style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (perfectly delivered by joss): Reddish-amber coloured, hazy, medium-sized off-white head; toasted malt, sweet-malt and some fruitiness in the aroma; light to medium-bodied, solid sweet-bitter flavour; becomes a bit drier towards the end: roasted malt, dried fruit and moderate hop-bitterness in the finish; almost a bit brandy-like and warming aftertaste. A goody, that reminds You of a diluted Doppelbock.....

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 500ml bottle.
Appearence was a slightly cloudy light orange. A nice 2 finger creamy white head upon the pour which slowly faded to a thin layer of head on top. Slight lacing.
Smell was of sweet malts with a little doughiness showing itself at the backend. Smells appetizing. A little faint though.
Taste was similiar to the smell. Sweet malt mostly and just a little bit of bread at the end as well. Taste is good.
Coats the mouth with a medium body.

Beautiful reddish brown, with medium carbonation and a long lasting ample creamy head. Aromas of butterscotch, pumpkin bread, and hot apple cider. Crispy, hoppy, with a sweet and spicy finish.

Bottle. Pours a very nice amber/gold orange with a nice creamy head. Aroma is caramel, with a good amount of spicy bread. Like a holiday cookie or something. Nice flavor makes me long to drink this out of a giant boot.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2007 Had this fresh at the tap room in Munich and I have had oxidized bottles. I will rate the tap room verison outstanding. Page 33 of MJ’s GBG only 199 of his Classic 500 Brews to go.

Good malty flavor: more bitter than Brooklyn Lager, sweeter than Spaten’s maerzen. A great Vienna style lager.
