Nettes Dunkel mit den üblichen Verdächtigen: Etwas an Malz, dazu minimal Karamell, und ein paar Nüsse. Die Malzigekit ist nett, dabei natürlich dominierend, der Geschmack eher muffig und tranig. Geht so.

Bottle from Getränke Kistner in Forchheim. The beer pours out in a deep dark brown colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of malt and bread. Taste of roasted malt, roast, torf, leaves, bread and barley. Light smokey hints. Drinkable, yet too smokey for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a brilliant clear copper color with a tall tan head. The smell is roasted malt, bread and tangy fruit. The taste is yeast, tangy fruit, roasted malt and a hint of chocolate all ending dry and crisp. The body is light and the carbonation is crisp, tight and refreshing. I’ve never been into dunkers so much but if they are like this one then I am now!
