Bottle. Clear golden amber color, delicate white head. Aroma of light caramel. Taste is a bit sweet, caramel malt, light herbs, subtle spice. Light body. One of the lighter dunkels out there I’m guessing.

TASTE: overall mildly sweet malty flavour with notes of caramel and slight bread crust. low bitterness with a medium-dry finish. no esters or diacetyl. PALATE: medium-low to low body with average carbonation. OVERALL: a not so bad dunkel that needs a bit more flavour intensity.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle (Liiviko, Tallinn)
Stinky and sweetish aroma at first. Settles to be grainier, darker, and a little dryer. Deepish red, small tight head. Dry dirty roasty malts, unclean, even rough. Finish drying, quite husky and almost burnt. Pretty crappy dunkel, a style I normally like.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Light copper body, medium head. Not a Dunkel in my book. A Dunkel looks dark brown. Aroma has mild roast with light hops. Light taste with a weak roast and some hops. No character detected. Don’t get fooled by the crafty swing top bottle - this is a boring industrial amber lager.
