3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear brown-amber, greenish shine; slim, diffuse off-white head. Caramel & a bit gassy - gRassy too. eeehh! Surprise, surprise. Couldn’t be more different from the other Engel Dunkels as possible. Blind, I’d say a very good keg British B.B. Quite delicate-hoppy, again a bit grassy. Rather light bodied. It is a bit watery, but the aftertaste yields more bitterness. As said, not at all German in character, and not any the worse for it.

Very light toasted malt nose - wanted more then to go with the amber color. Tall foamy rocky head is attractive. Creamy toffee maltiness with a metallic end. Decent balance. Is that smoke tucked away in there? Not quite, but maybe a little peaty or maybe burnt caramel.

Decent brew - suprisingly. Fizzy carbonation, medium fast diminishing head, dark amber color. Sweet malt nose. Banana flavor, not to sweet, but very thick and flat - Altbier? I wouldn't say that - who came to that Idea?

Most consumed in the Crailsheim aread in Baden-Wuertenberg. Probably does not compare to the likes of Warsteiner, but still can be enjoyed.
