2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Literflasche, gesponsert von Frankenland! Clear, amber coloured with a small, lacy beige head. Nuts, but also burnt malt and a touch of barnyard in the nose. Light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied. Burnt malt - again - and vegetables in the slightly metallic finish. Poor by franconian standards.....

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
100cl growler, with thanks to Frankenland. Slightly hazy, amber to chestnut-brown colour with a short off-white foamy head. Light-sweet and toast-malty aroma with caramel/toffee. Bitter-sweet flavour, toast-malty and slightly nutty taste with notes of caramel/toffee, accompanied by burnt elements. Quite light bodied, slightly fizzy on the tongue, dry and slightly burnt bitter finish with a light hops character. Drinkable but not a world-shaking Dunkel, at least by Franconian standards [09.XII.08].
