First beer we have cooked here after many years of break. Its origins reach back to Munich from the first half of the 19th century. Our St. Norbert tastes dryer and bitterer than the Munich lager. Whole malt well hopped beer, showing the Munich, caramelized and roasted malt in its taste.

From tap - 0,25l at brewpub. Pours clear dark brown liquid, medium frothy tan to brown head, good stability, Aroma: roasted notes, coffee, malty, dark chocolate, minor smoke notes, very good, Taste: medium sweet, medium bitter, dry, malty, roasty and smoke notes, sausage - meaty, very good, Palate: medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long bitter roasty finish, Overall: very good, nice smooth palate, perhaps only some thing, that disturbs me in the aftertaste - in the aftertaste, the mouthfeel gets bit empty/ flat, but the body, bitterness and caramel are ok. I m not able to describe it more precisely.

Thanks to David’s sister/mother for bringing this back. Really solid, lightly sweet malty lager with some nuttiness, caramels. Drinks more like an amber lager than I expected from the color.

Missed it last time, got it this time. Poured a daaaark brown body with a beige thick head that went away relatively slowly. Dry malty aroma, a bit of a letdown, only some miiiild chocolate taste. Mild dry taste, caramel, toasty, ending with a medium bitterness. A well executed lager that paled in comparison to the Antidepressant Ale & the Jantar, but would be the star beer of most brewpubs I’ve been to.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is more chocolate and malt than anything. Med body. Flavor is dark malt/darkish chocolate - fairly towards dry - not very bitter.

very dark brown colour, beige-ish head; aroma and taste of roasted malt, some coffee, dark chocolate, and hints of ash; a bit watery; not bad, but I expected more after tasting their IPA and Weizen.
