The nose will enjoy pepper and gentle roasting aromas such as cocoa and bitter chocolate. After a crisp initial taste, the malt releases more gentle avours. The texture is dry. A subtle acid kick from the roasting aromas leads to the nale: toffee, toast and cocoa notes gently linger. Dominantly malty, slim, dry.

Bottle: Light amber coloured, hazy, medium-sized and slowly collapsing off-white head, fruity-caramelly nose with some herbal-hoppy edges; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied; shorter bitter-caramelly finish. Not bad at all...

Tap sampler tray at the Brewpub Hackescher Markt. Hazy dark amber, nearly brown-ish color with small tan head. Aroma is caramel, bready, earthy, a bit nutty. Taste is bready, nutty, a bit sweet, nearly sticky. A bit messy, but quite nice, although I have to say that I generally like Ambers.

bartlebier (3728) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2016
355ml or US-style 12oz Buddel bb31.09/2016 (batch 310316-A), B-D. - Bref: Dry yet fruity caramalts hover between Dunkel and Alt, landing at a Boston Lager-inspired Vienna with satisfaying rounded flavours and high drinkability. - - Mostly bready, toasted malts and caramel in aroma tinged with sweet herbal notes. Smooth, full mouthfeel suffused with lovely dry toffee and toasted malts, less angular than Boston Lager, less hoppy than an Alt - on point for an Amber Lager/Vienna Id say. Finishes on cocoa powder with a touch of liquorice. Going by earlier raters, this must have been a particularly decent batch? Surprisingly satisfying - well-done, old-school Berlin-Wien-Achse!
