2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky looking dull brown/amber body, on top a cream coloured head. Slight caramel and nutty feel to the nose and taste: fairly sweet with a mild hop finish. I’d say a typical German brewpub Dunkel, nothing upsetting, but nothing extra ordinary either, drinking it fresh and surrounded by the brewing equipment makes all the difference though

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown pour with healthy thick beige head. Scent of carmel, iron metallics. Flavors of bready sweet malt, metallic euro hops, smooth carmel too. Average carbonation, frothy mouthfeel a bit on the thin side, pretty clean finish. Nice smooth German dunkel.

Alright. Pours orangy brown with good head and lacing. Sessionable - that’s the point I guess. Tap at Bread Soda.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear bronze appearance with an average size, off white head and a fair amount of lacing. Toasted malt aroma with some nuttiness in the background. Moderately sweet taste of caramel malts balanced by subdued spicy hops. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel. Will not knock your socks off but, still, a pleasant, flavorful, traditional, session beer.
