COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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!

Maverick34 (3132) - New York, USA - APR 4, 2007
Draft. Pours dark caramel brown w/medium head. Aroma is hoppy and malty as is taste. Surprisingly hoppy really for a german beer. I dont know if the flavor combination works, I dont think Id want another.

heavy (2808) - Split, CROATIA - MAR 26, 2010
06/03 Draught at the brewpub. It poured reddish to brown body with medium sized head. Strange malty nose, some smoked meat. Boring sweetish flavor made up from bit of coffee, somewhat caramel and hint of wood. Medium body, but it had long, sweet caramelly finish. Fine, ordinary and pretty boring dunkel, so typical. Unlike my friend, I found this Lemke beer to be least satisfying.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear dark/red colour with a nice creamy head. Light aroma of malt and some touch of roastedness. Light flavour of roastedness, chocolate and quite fruity. Nothing overwelming but okey.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Draught at Lemkes Spezialittenbrauerei, Berlin.
Hazy amber/orange beer with a fine white head. Sweet caramelly and fruity aroma with orange tones. Mostly sweet malty and fruity in the flavor. Flower and nut tones also. Good for Berlin brewpub standards!
