massingasetta (717) - München, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2017
A decent Dunkel from Ettaler. Tastes vey natural and is highly drinkable. Not as refined from the bitterness as most Dunkel, but certainly a refreshing beer.

CanCrusher (1039) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle 0,50L. Clear amber color with average big, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel and milk chocolate. Taste starts light sweet and turns to medium sweet at the finish. There are notes of caramel and milk chocolate in taste, too. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Too sweet for my taste and too weak on the body.

En mild sødlig øl, med meget mild humle. Næsten ingen kulsyre. God smag, dog ikke det store sus.

Idiosynkrasie (7091) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2015
500ml bottle [No. 2 of a tripartite mini-series kindly donated by bartlebier, thank you very much!]. Clear chestnut colour with ruby red glimmer and huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Roasty dark malty aroma with a nuttily touch, some cocoa. Taste is dry dark malty, subtle sweetness, hints of cocoa, a nuttily touch. Clean, precise, well controlled sweetness. Good.
