Medium beige head. Slightly hazy brown body with light lazy carbonation. Grainy caramelly aroma with grassy notes. Dry-sweetish caramelly toffee taste with grassy notes. Mid-bodied. Dry-sweetish dusty grassy aftertaste with oily buttery herbal notes. Highly drinkable session beer. (0.5l bottle at DBF’11. Also had it at brewpub, but that was before I started rating.)

Beer No. 112 on my tour through Austria, Germany and Denmark.
Bottled 500ml. -from the bottle in the car somewhere on Bavarian highway. Quite odd hint of mustard in the nose. Sweet malty, light hoppy herbal with dryish finish. Also mild touch of roastiness and alcohol.

Nettes Dunkel ohne große Ambitionen. Leicht malzig, dazu angenehm in der Perlung recht einfach zu trinken. Nix Großes, aber solide und süffig.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Shared 500 ml swingtop bottle, thanks to gunnar who brought it fresh from Bamberg. ABV is 6.0%. Amber / reddish brown colour, moderate white head. Unusual "wet wool" or "damp closet" aroma, weak caramel malts in the background. The flavour is moderately malty with a little caramel, but is not very sweet. The aroma blends in with the flavour in an unpleasant way.
