Color is dark, but light for a dunkel. Thins beige head, aroma of malt and sourdough. Taste is rye and very slightly sour. A different sort of dunkel, hard to judge against the norms for the style.

Bottled 14/02/13. A dark brown coloured beer which poured with no head. A dry dunkel with definite smoky malts in the aroma. It’s like the Bambergian atmosphere has made the beer smoky. Grassy hops in the mouth. Clean and really quite nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A bright, reddish brown coloured beer with a weak off white head. A slightly sweet, rounded malt aroma, hints of other cereals and there is a touch of mily chocolate in the background. Medium dry mouthfeel. A smooth malty taste to start, some wheat and oats, plus a mild coffee flavour. There is an underlying tang throughout, bitter citrus pith, but not an unpleasant match to the malty sweetness. The finish is bitter and lasting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle bizarrely from Green Berry in Walmer. Just what is this beer doing here? Chris said that he gets some beers from a german bloke who brings the beers over. Wow. Clear deep brown colour with lasting beige head. Malty aroma. Malty beer. Fairly easy to drink. Bit of dry malt flavour on the finish. Bit of herb on the hop on the finish. Some sting on the tongue on finish. Quite an intense aroma. Easy drinking. Malty lager. Good.
