Bottle from the brewery. Clear dark amber body with a short off-white head. Again with the detergent! There’s your typical toast, bread, honey and dog food maltiness with laundry soap and metal and chemical notes. A quickly-dissolving head confirms problems for me. Sweet, candy-like malt sugar in the approach turns sour and strongly soapy in the finish. Low bitterness, high sweetness, limp malt, low carbonation, very messy and seems more soda-like than beer-like.
(bottle) Clear, dark amber to brown colour with a beige and firm medium-sized foamy head. Mildly roasty malty, slightly earthy aroma with notes of caramel, bread crusts and a whiff of dough. Mildly sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a soft carbonation. Earthy and mildly roast-malty taste with bready notes, caramel, traces of vanilla and a whiff of herbal hoppy spice, which also dries the beer towards the sweet and mildly bitter hoppy finish. Solid, rather a clasical Dunkel than a Festbier. 26.VI.17 pivnizub (10906) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2017
Fläschla(ABV 5.1%) (@Landbierparadies, Norimberk): Almost clear, deep ruby-amber coloured, relatively quickly diminishing loos off-white head, bitter-sweet "rural" dark-malty nose with very delicate traces of toasted malt; mild to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, pretty soft and presumably medium bodied; mild but lingering bitter-sweet dark-malty and a bit toasty finish with a delicate bitterness in the aftertaste. Simple brew, but likeable...
