Light amber colour. Noses of wet hot stones, grass and lightly roasted malts. Tatses of bbq/wood a bit smoked. Bit lively CO2. Medium body, bit slick and rasping on the tongue. Wished for more finish!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap from the source. Hazy chestnut body, lacing beige head. Light caramel an toffee, but the body reveals a very interesting nuttiness - to my buds, peanuts, clear as day. Light-medium body, some fruitiness.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft at the brewpub. Not very dark for a "dunkel" - more of an amber, I’d say. Quite "bubbly" as a travel companion noted, airy and quite filling. Both beers we tried here had an odd bubblegum essence that was less than appealing. (#4397, 12/3/2011)

Beer No. 102 on my tour through Austria, Germany and Denmark.
Draught at the brewpub. Murky amber coloured, small off-white head, pretty neutral nose, just tiny hint of caramel. Toasted malty, caramel and light fruity with mild hoppiness in the finish. Simple dunkel.
