COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Dark lagers were the norm until the late 19th century and they still exist today in Franconia, north of Munich. We have recreated this ancient lager using toasted Munich barley malt, then slow matured it for up to six weeks to develop rich toffee caramel flavours.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2006
Bottle (from Sainsburys). Red brown colour. A malt focussed beer - some toffee with toastier flavours just edging into the coffee and chocolate spectrum. Quite dry and light with a hint of hop towards the end. Fairly pleasant but I found this somewhat unsatisfying as the nice aroma and first taste doesnt follow through in the rest of the beer.

Fin (7251) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2006
330ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours a drak reddy/brown colour with good sized off white head. Very interesting and tasty beer some pleasant soft maltiness but with fruit and hints of a bitter dark chocolateness. Really enjoyed this.

harrisoni (13198) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2006
330ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Beautiful deep ruby colour, lasting thick tan head. Coffee aroma, bit of powder, some dark fruits (plums). Soft in mouth, more fruity choc/coffee. Good fresh plum flavour. Very faint hop. Nice dark lager, very drinkable. Bit of ashtray on finish.
