4.8/5  rDev +31.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Pours out a crystaline nut brown with amber edges and an eggshell head. The head is very thick but not lasting; it quickly fades to a film over the brew. Smell is strong with bits of cappuchino, caramel, oat, and wheat. Blend it together in one bottle and you've got a concoction that you can detect from a good ten inches away from a freshly poured glass. Starts extra smooth and refreshingly crisp with a creme taste. Settles gently sour with lots of hop bitters. There is a sugary undertone to the full-bodied drink. Finishes sour and bitter, dry and strong. The aftertaste is just as edgy and lasting as the rest of the beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The beer was poured into a pub glass.

Appearance: The beer was a very pleasing amber coloration. The head was thick and fluffy honey colored. The head resolved into thick foamy rings.

Smell: The beer has a very good biscuity smell. There is a nice floral nutty clove smell flowing through the beer.

Taste: The beer has a pleasing caramel biscuity smell. There is plenty of sweetness to go around here. The hops break up the sweetness nicely.

Mouthfeel/ Drinkability: This is a light to medium bodied beer. The beer is very nicely balanced. This is a dam fine sessionable beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz swing top bottle pours a clear dark amber with a huge creamy off white head that leaves a sticky lacing in my glass, bready, fruity aromas. Nutty caramel, chocolate flavors, medium bodied with a creamy smooth mouthfeel with a somewhat dry finish, a great lager.

3.63/5  rDev -0.5%

Im happy to say our craft beer store brought thisone plus three others of these cool little flip-top bottles from Flensburger for 1.99 each. My first flip-top.
The beer pours a dark chestnut amber with a nice, big bubbled, tan head. The medium carbonation maintains the head well and lace has mild stick.
The aroma is toasted grain and bread-like malts. The taste is toasted bread, citric style hop and as I find with alot of German beers, a metallic background, though thisone has a hint of salty water. It doesn't hurt drinkability for its a nice little Dunkel with a cool little bottle.

This beer is very clear and dark copper coloured, with a small fine head.
Smell: molasses, dark malts and fruits, slightly toasted/burned.
Taste: malt bitter, molasses, bitter and dry.
This beer seems to be a Munich Dunkel lager, and I am not formiliar with the style, it reminded me of a darker Alt beer. So very drinkable and with a nice maltiness

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

I found this in Moscow in a stubby half liter bottle painted white with a wintery seasonal painting on the front. Swing top seal and a small label around the neck confirming the applicability of the purity law and providing an "at least good until 11/05" label - this was the last beer I opened in 2004.

Pours clear copper under a 1.5 finger off-white head with some contour and decent retention. A few spots of lace linger on the glass. The nose is mild caramel, with a distinct flowery hops note. The mouth is thin and well carbonated. The taste is very subdued: some mild smooth sweet caramel malt throughout, without much in the way of hops backing. A pleasant enough brew, but nothing exciting.

3.73/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: 0.33l cute short and stubby brown bottle with a flip-top ceramic lid. Freshness date on the back.

Appearance: Pours a clear and bright, rich amber beer crowned with an off-white head that's sticky, clumpy, frothy and lasting. Most impressive.

Smell: Smooth and pleasant on the nose. Toasted grain, faint herbal background. Big bready character, like that initial bread in the oven aroma.

Taste: Smooth mouthfeel, light-bodied. Malts hit first with a simple, yet enjoyable, toasty character -- sweetness is balanced. This is followed by a hop flash of citric, rind and salt on the palate and a lively carbonation. Things go a bit coarse at this point and merge with a grainy, bitty, tannin character. Wraps up with a slight roasted character that dries the mouth and leaves a residual bready flavour.

Notes: A very well-done Dunkel, balanced and traditional. It's also easy on the palate and very refeshing.

3.68/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 33cl brown reusable swing-top bottle with a drink before date on the back label.

Appearance: Crystal clear brassy hue, patchy yet chunky lacing that leaves random web-like trails as the brew is sipped.

Smell: Fresh and bready aroma, smells of a toasted all grain loaf .. very clean with some fresh malt in there.

Taste: Fluffy crispness, moderate body and quite smooth. Clean malt throughout, modest toasted malt rolls from bread crust to a cracker like flavour. Hops are even with a simple bitterness with a touch of herbal flavour. Finishes slightly dry with lots of clean graininess.

Notes: An easy drinking amber lager, clean with full grain flavours is just what I was looking for in this beer. Typical in a way but good none the less.
