3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the Lowenbraukeller Munich 23/1/14. First beer of the trip. Aroma is rye bread, wood bark, spritzy carbonation. Clear dark red / caramel pour with a big lasting cream head that laves some foam and lace. Flavour is bready rye bread, caramel sweetness and some earthy, mannure notes. Highish carbonationtickles the tongue, medium light body, Teast profle is fairly subdued, but there is a hint of banana ester in there. Finish has a nice touch of roast and wood. lateer some cabbage develops in the nose, which isn’t great. Overall one the better dunkes I’ve had.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Surprisingly refreshing dark beer with a small head but a fine malty aroma reminding me of some nuts and caramel. Tastes very light and easy, something sometimes unusual for a darker beer.
