3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Bright bronze with a fine white cap. Garden herbal aroma with mint, wax, toffee and orange smudges. As you were in the mouth; oily hop, herbs, toffee, plus some lamb and mint sauce. Bread and caramel emerging in the finish. Slick and oily with a dip of marzipan and cake. Fine, but nothing worth rushing back to..

A bit hard to shoehorn, could be a dark Vienna as well.
Fruity malty nose with a bit toast.
Orange amber color, little visible carbonation, nice frothy head.
Soft fruity malt flavors dominate, a tad nutty, dry hops towards the end.
Creamy mouthfeel, slightly flat.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
18 Oct 2011: Brown 500ml bottle best before the end of this month, so 12 days life left when poured into my lovely Wolnzacher Brauhaus glass tankard.
It looked fantastic, a bright amber body as clean as any beer on earth, on top an off-white head of quality.
The aroma was of earthy malts with hints of caramel and sweet molasses.
The taste an impeccable blend of all things good about German beers: the brew is obviously infused with the best ingrediants available and lovingly produced to a high standard.
Peppery aftertaste, earthy and filling, I had some rough brown bread and some mildly smoked ham with the last few drops of the beer and it suited the food beautifully.
Very impressed indeed.

Bottle from Erzengel - many thanks, Gabriel! The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with a small head and medium body. Aroma of malt, bread and straw. Taste of hops, dark bread, nuts, straw, basement and barley. Smooth to drink, yet nothing special.

Relativ klassisch eingebraut ohne grosse Hoehepunkte. Etwas im Malz mit einem bisschen an Nuss, Karamell und Zucker, dann wieder ordentlich im Getreide, dabei jedoch recht sueffig und einfach zu triken. Nicht wirklich besonders, aber vollkommen ok.

(bottle) pours a clear amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of dark fruit, caramel and hazelnuts, with lots of grain and mustiness. flavour is more on the roasted malt and coffee side of things, though still quite grainy, with a light roasted-bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.
