2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(On tap) Hazy, orangey brown with a creamy, beige head leaving broad curtains of lacework. Tart aroma. Light - almost watery - body with roasted malt notes and a slightly coffeeish edge. The tartness in the aroma has vanished completely in the flavours giving room for a very soft - almost flat - mouthfeel. 151106

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. I was very mich surprised when I got this after ordering it at the brewpub. After sitting down in so many German brewpubs and having a beer I’m getting used to getting mediocre weizen, helles, dunkel etcetera. But this one is different. Light herbal aroma. Red color, beige head, good lace. Light sweet, herbal, bit roasted, light bitter, malty. Soft mouthfeel, light dry finish. Don’t expect a Dunkel! Because it isn’t. I think it’s a Vienna.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Roasted aroma. Quite cloudy dark brown colour, almost muddy. Stable light brown head. Roasted flavour, OK malty, slightly acidic. Thin mouthfeel. Reminds me of a nice roasted Schwarzbier, except for the appearance.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at brewpub. Intense roast caramel taste with a dry, malty, caramel and treacle toffee finish plus some perfumey sweetness. A strange beer for Northern Germany, where the dunkels are usually very pale and bland.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light toasted malt nose, dark amber-brown color, low creamy head. Sweet caramelly malt, woody dry end, papery quality too. Medium body. Not sure about the balance on this one. Fo for the pils if you make it to this brewpub.
