3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flip-top half-litre bottle BBD 4th July 2013: poured into two ’Hannan Alt’ tumblers at home on 7th June 2013.
Good looking beer: toffee apple red/brown with an off-white head that tried to hang around.
Semi-sweet maltiness in the aroma and taste: caramel and toffee notes coming through from the very start of the tasting. I like the sweeter brews so this was fine by me.
Easy to drink and fairly well balanced: mini bitterness towards the end, but still one of the sweetest Dunkels I’ve had so far.
