UPDATED: NOV 11, 2005 500 ml screwcap bottle, bought in Bier Spezi Hamburg. Typical dunkel reddish brown colour, decent pale greyish brown head. Pleasant malty sweet aroma with notes of caramel, toast and bakery. Mellow nutty flavour with notes of dark bread and caramel, tolerable hops for a dunkel (Hallertau, Spalt and Tettnang). Nice.

(Bottle 50 cl) Very pretty reddish brown beer with a small, dense head that leaves a pretty lacework in my glass. Malty, slightly nutty character without much sweetness and only a moderate bitterness. Dry - almost reminding me of an English Bitter. 120101
