look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A - Pours a hazy deep honey color with a thick off-white head. While certainly darker than a regular Gose ("Dunkle" indicates "dark"), this would be about as light of a Munich Dunkel or Dunkelweizen as you would find.

S - Aroma is straight up, slickly sweet Munich malt with just a hint of herbal noble hops.

T - Much like the aroma, the flavor is bready, sweet and grainy up front, much like I would expect from a Munich Dunkel. The characteristic sourness I expect from a Gose is noticeably absent, as is any hint of coriander. There's a bit of rye flavor and dryness in the finish. The only Gose-like quality I pick up is the same slightly salty mineral harshness I pick up in the aftertaste of Brauerei Goslar's Helle Gose.

M - Somewhat thin but this is offset by the ample carbonation.

D - Quite refreshing and flavorful without being heavy.

Overall: This would be a good Munich Dunkel, but I can't help but be disappointed given that this is the only dark Gose being produced. Brauerei Goslar should brew this just as they do their Helle Gose, only with ample Munich malt, and this would be an awesome beer. But without the sourness, it's just another Dunkel.

Hazy, muddy, amber-brown pour with an off-white two finger head with good retention and lacing. The nose is pretty typical of a German Dunkle with lots of malt with hints of caramel, subtle chocolate, brown bread, grain, and brown sugar. The taste is malt forward with lots of caramel, brown bread, brown sugar, subtle saltiness, and a just a touch of sour on the finish. The mouthfeel is slightly thick with medium carbonation and a salty-sweet finish. Overall, this was a bit more interesting than the Helle version. I think the salt plays better with the dark malts.

Half litre bottle, no head, hazy,copper colour. Vegetable smell, notes of carrot, coriander, salt and cucumber. Fairly sour and the sourness doesn't ease up. I can't really taste much difference to the Helles Gose. Not smooth but not fizzy either. Interesting beer again non-Reinheitsgebot but too sour for me.

Pours a dark amber-orange color, with a small white head.

Offers a lactic, toffee coated sourness, with an interesting toasty note to it.

Has a medium carbonation, which is by far not as refreshing as the Hell version, with a watery, one dimensional finish, as for the lack of required carbonation.

Tastes of a toffee covered toastiness among dusty old bakers chocolate and a chunk of crisp lemon. Its typical mineralic quality, which is symptomatic for the style, is a tad subdued, compared to the regular Gose, producing a very steamlined but boring and watery finish.

Drinks more than a brown ale than a Gose, due to it more pronounced malts, lower carbonation, lack of spices and a subdued lemony infusion.
