3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled as Königsberg Dark. Poured clear medium copper with a taller, well-retained off-white head. The aroma picked up a whole great deal of sweetness that I’ve come to expect from Eastern-European lagers.. toasty caramel, some chocolate, and sweet floral.. I really enjoyed it. The flavor was a bit too sweet, lacking a bit of substance.. caramel and light, sweet chocolate at the core with light herbal and coffee bitterness fairly well-integrated in there.. very sweet and short finish. Lighter-bodied and sweet on the palate.. dry and a little tacky on the finish. Solid stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Biggish offwhite fine-laced head over red-brown body with ongoing carbonation. Sweet roasty caramelly aroma with some cinnamon. Impressively harmonic. Some earthiness as well. Taste is light earthy caramel and some paper. Lingering, papery stale taste. A decent dunkel. (0.5l bottle.)

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nut brown, small brown head. Fresh lemony (dishwater) nose. Malty but light sweetish palate. Not much dunkel-like, more like a pale lager in the taste and a vienna in outlook. Sugary aftertaste.
