3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml on-tap in Fischerstube brewpub, Basel, Switzerland (6.80 CHF):
This one was quite a nice, easy going dunkel that was a major step up from the only other Swiss beer that I’ve tried to date (Feldschlössen Original) & the fact there was actually some flavour to this one was definitely a plus. There was plenty of sweetness throughout but it didn’t seem overdone & the balance was quite good with some pleasant bitterness towards the end as well.

Tap at Fischerstube. The dark version of the Lager Hell it seems. A bit less dusty and much more beautiful. Another good beer for its style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a lightly hazed, brown colored body with an inch thick, frothy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is nutty and toasty with a light sweetness, some DMS, raisins, and a light bread. Flavor is similar. Slightly nutty and toasty with a bit of a roast note, some raisin-bread, DMS, and grains. Finishes clean and somewhat dry before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent dunkel. A slight off-flavor note with the DMS, but not bad.
