330ml bottle from Brauhaus Lemke am Alex, Berlin (€2.18):thellgren (1061) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 15, 2017
Definitely a sweeter beer than expected without being sickening, the beer was also more fruity and floral than anticipated but the balance was good and prevented any one flavour overpowering. I particularly enjoyed the berries and lighter summer fruits that came through in the early going which were unexpected but seemed to work well with the darker malts and caramel. It was quite an easy going and drinkable beer with enough difference between it and a standard Vienna lager to keep things interesting throughout, as well as making it one that I wouldn’t mind having again.
0,5 l draught @ Brauhaus Lemke am Hackeschen Markt, Berlin. Appearance is dark brown, cloudy and with a decent head. This is supposed to be Wiener style lager, but to me it looks like unfiltered dunkel. Taste is, however, quite good. Dark malts are balanced nicely with bitter hops. kappldav123 (6100) - GERMANY - APR 3, 2017
Tap at the brewpub. Brownish coloured, small head. Surprising smokey aroma. Starts fine malty, earthy, hints of some spices. Light chocolate notes. Finish a bit milder. Not as smokey as the aroma made me exspect. Nice one!
