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 I’d 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!

Draft. Pours dark caramel brown w/medium head. Aroma is hoppy and malty as is taste. Surprisingly hoppy really for a german beer. I don’t know if the flavor combination works, I don’t think I’d want another.
