3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask taster @ The Fiddler Brewpub. Part of their Beer Flight. Shot glass sized. Only one of the 7 beers that I had by them that I would describe as decent, enjoyable even. Darker brown orange with zero head. Nose is orange, light bitter orange peel hop,… Bitter / sweet orange peel taste, orange, rind, sweetish, light sugar, touch watery, light caramel,… Sugary & tad watery body. Not really what I would expect from a Dunkler Bock (I didn’t pick it out as such) but this actually drinks okay.
