Das “Michala” ist ein dunkles, vollmundiges Kellerbier. Es ist naturbelassen und unfiltriert. Im Gegensatz zu vielen seiner “Artgenossen” ist es nicht nicht so malzig und damit nicht so süß.

Bottle @ Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. Pours amber with a creamy head. Caramel, freshly baked bread, grass and an insanely smoothness. Chewy malty with a good hoppy finish. Lovely!

My Bottom Line :
Toasted malts and wooden hops gel in this smooth Dunkel, effortlessly moving into a balanced finish of lean bready sweetness and hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam decorates the misty amber.
-The fluffy mouthfeel is very comfortable.
-Subtle fruity edges give depth.
-Drinkability is quite high, which is appreciated. This is another very solid offering from this new Franconian player.

On tap at the brewery gasthof.

0.5l Bottle. Pours cloudy, medium brownish colour. Small white head. Nose is a lot of yeast with just a bit of caramel malt. Full bodied, well balanced, not too sweet.

A nice unfiltered dunkel. This one is a bit lighter in color, but still full on flavor.

pivnizub (10186) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2009
Draught at the brewpub: Hazy, amber coloured, stable creamy off-white head; dry dark-malty, a bit toasty nose with herbal-hoppy undertones and a light barnyardy touch; light bodied, moderate bitter-sweet flavour; lingering aromatic bitter-nutty finish. Well balanced, typical franconian stuff.........

Cloudy amber with a large beige head. Sweet aroma with toasted malt, caramel and grassy hops. The fresh flavour had toasted malt, caramel, grassy hops and plums. Finished dry and bitter.

jfb (5578) - Freising, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2010
(draught) pours a dark lightly hazy copper-ruby colour with a dense off-white head. well-rounded aroma of roasted malts, slightly buttery with notes of grass and hay. flavour is the same, a dry slightly grainy toasted maltiness contrasts with a light toffee caramel sweetness. medium-bodied with smooth carbonation.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2011
It’s hazy, dark-orange towards copper with a creamy head, The aroma has notes of malt, caramel and light fruit, and the same notes I find in the moderately sweet flavour, that has a dry finish. A nice one.
