Draught as Dunkles. Unclear deep amber colour with a creamy beige ehad. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel/toffee. Good mouthfeel. Flavour of well toasted caramel and malt with a nice bitterness. Sweet caramel toasty malty finish.

Betty (235) - Walgett, NSW, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2008
Slightly worse than the rubia/helles. No obvious hops, the colour is no darker than amber. Tastes like the anzac cookies you get after church and you´re too polite to say they are soggy and crap next week after the bin job because the bitty who baked them was trying hard at least and doesn´t need to be discouraged after what happened to her son.

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2008
Draught at the brewpub. Slightly hazy dark amber color small long lasting head. Toasty and nutty aroma.Toasty, nutty and biscuity flavor with hints of toffee and berries. Slightly chewy palate with soft carbonation. Good basic dark lager with fresh toasty maltiness. Much better than the Naturbier Helles.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2008
Amber beer with a small beige head and minimal carbonation. At first I tasted hardly anything but than caramel suddenly pops up for just a brief second. Hardly any aftertaste. Better than the other Spanish beers I had during my visit in Madrid.

bboeckl (142) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2008
On tap at Naturbier. Strong caramel aroma and flavor. Dark brown coloration. Very sweet taste of roasted munich malt. Extremely fresh due to the high turnover of beer on tap at Naturbier. Not extremely complex but quite good with the basics. One of the better beers I have had in Spain.

CamdenD (1059) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 25, 2007
This seemed to be more of a smoked beer to me then a classic vienna, but nonetheless it’s a very uniquely styled beer again probably gaining some points due to the fact that Naturbier exists in the beer-vacuum that is Madrid. Nicely done.

yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2007
From tap at the brewpub (on tap as Dunkles). Pours brown with a white lacing head. Caramel and light roasted malt aroma, slight butterish. Sweet flavour, a bit like toffee. Has clear malt notes and caramel in a sweet blend. Finish is soft and slight breadish, but sweet. Not bad, but just too sweet to be great. Shows some great lacework on the glass, I couldn’t finish it so I don’t know how it compares to the helles.
