2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
300ml bottle from Lupe Pinto, Glasgow (£1.49):
Light and sweet one the nose with a smell mainly consisting of malts and a few caramel notes There is a roasted malts aroma and a bit of fruit in there too.
Murky brown with a thin, white lacing around the brim for a head.
Light in this department too with a few light fruits and a mix of caramel and roasted malts. There is a bit of toffee and a malty taste with a touch of grain. A pretty basic dark lager really.
Smooth with only a touch of grain on the palate, a bit of fruity sweetness and a crisp finish with fairly strong carbonation.
A very basic dark lager that I wouldn’t quite class as a dunkel as it was too light and plain. Everything was fairly light and unobtrusive making it pretty easy to drink but not particularly enjoyable.

Excelente color oscuro pero con pobre espuma. decente sabor ahumado con notas de maiz y maltas. Paladar seco y alcoholico, sin retención de los sabores primarios.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown colour, head is small but lasting and of a tan colour. Caramel, ripe fruits and a bits malts in the aroma. There’s a fair bit of hops in the flavour, especially the finish is good, but slightly watery. I was surprised by this, I didn’t have high expectations judging from the bottle.
