3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml screwcap bottle, simply named "Engel Dunkel", confirmed by the brewery website. Bought at Otto Duborg, Flensburg, Germany. ABV is 5.3% (label), brewery website says 5.2%. Unpasteurised but filtered. This is their ordinary Dunkel, not to be confused with their unfiltered Engel Kellerbier Dunkel. Beautiful clear chestnut colour, large and lasting off-white head. Pleasant malty aroma with strong notes of bakery, chocolate and caramel. Moderate carbonation. Malty sweet flavour with a moderate roastiness, notes of Danish pastry, hints of over-ripe berries. Some hops in the finish.

Bottle: Amber to brown coloured; thin and lasting white head; sweetish malty nose, fruity vinous traces and a tinge of roasted malts; quite dry (roast)malty taste, hints of milk-chocolate; light bitter, but mainly malty finish; quite light bodied, lacks a fuller body; to be really good a bit too thin; a not unpleasant Dunkel, though.........

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown with medium head. A very light sweet malty aroma. Taste is thin, sweet and grassy. Aftertaste is malty and slightly bitter. I agree, it lacks character.
