COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Dark lagers were the norm until the late 19th century and they still exist today in Franconia, north of Munich. We have recreated this ancient lager using toasted Munich barley malt, then slow matured it for up to six weeks to develop rich toffee caramel flavours.

Bottle (from Sainsburys). Red brown colour. A malt focussed beer - some toffee with toastier flavours just edging into the coffee and chocolate spectrum. Quite dry and light with a hint of hop towards the end. Fairly pleasant but I found this somewhat unsatisfying as the nice aroma and first taste doesnt follow through in the rest of the beer.

Bottle. A dark copper colour with a large off white head. plenty of malt in the nose. The taste is very malty, with a hint of coffee and caramel. The beer has a malty bitter finish.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Dark lager. Smooth and malty. Not complex but pretty drinkable.
