3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Naturbier. Strong caramel aroma and flavor. Dark brown coloration. Very sweet taste of roasted munich malt. Extremely fresh due to the high turnover of beer on tap at Naturbier. Not extremely complex but quite good with the basics. One of the better beers I have had in Spain.

This seemed to be more of a smoked beer to me then a classic vienna, but nonetheless it’s a very uniquely styled beer again probably gaining some points due to the fact that Naturbier exists in the beer-vacuum that is Madrid. Nicely done.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From tap at the brewpub (on tap as Dunkles). Pours brown with a white lacing head. Caramel and light roasted malt aroma, slight butterish. Sweet flavour, a bit like toffee. Has clear malt notes and caramel in a sweet blend. Finish is soft and slight breadish, but sweet. Not bad, but just too sweet to be great. Shows some great lacework on the glass, I couldn’t finish it so I don’t know how it compares to the helles.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
At the brewpub, clear copper with a white head. Aroma of caramel, german hops, and some raw grain. Smooth caramel flavour with a light hop profile giving some enjoyment. The finish is quite dry for the style. Like the Marzen, its basic as you could imagine... but one of those beers you could just sit and drink all night.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Naturbier. Poured a deeper reddish-brown with a short, creamy beige head. Sweet toasted caramel along with.. well.. not much else in the aroma.. perhaps a touch of lighter fruits peeked through. The flavor had a bit more going on than the aroma indicated.. toasty caramel and some darker fruits at the base with a mild herbal bitterness.. OK. Lighter-bodied on the palate and very dry.. somewhat sweet.. short, toasty finish.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught, a cloudy brown with a foamy tan-tinted head. A stronger malt aroma than its Helles cousin, only slightly caramal and roasted. A sweetening malty flavour, over-carbonated and not as clean or crisp as the Helles.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Naturbier, march 07. Cloudy, copper-red color and a thick, creamy, beige head. Aroma is toasty, slight caramel touch. Tast is pruney, profound but not pushy. Deep enjoyable toasty feeling with a nice coffee aftertaste. Medium to light MF, moreish. A nice, although not too exceptional, interesting dunkle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It had a chocolate/mocha aroma. It was dark brown with a white head. The flavor was very nutty, in fact I would have guessed it was a nut brown ale. The mouthfeel was sticky, and the aftertaste was like Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. I’ll give it a lot of credit for being fresh.
