It’s taste is not as exceptional and speaks it’s brand as other Hofbrauhaus variants but overall a pretty good Dunkel. A bit bitter, nice foam.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is roasty malty and sweet. Appearance is dark brown with hint of red, crystal clear and small light tan head. Taste is dark malt forward, not quite roasty, but dark malts. Bread crust, toffee, mineral-y, tobacco. Hops bitterness present but balanced just right with malt. Palate is crisp and smooth. Overall a very nice Dunkel. Right on to style. Nothing fancy, just a quality dark lager. I could drink these all day.
