Received as part of a monthly beer club membership from my wonderful children. Poured into a nonic pint glass.

A good representation of the Munich Dunkel lager style. An underrated brewery producing good beers in generally undervalued styles. 4.25

A – Pours a clear reddish brown with a thin brown rocky head that dissipates quickly to nothing (-), almost zero lacing. 3.25

S – Malt, bread crusts. 4.25

T – Brown bread, faint toffee and molasses. 4

MF – Medium-bodied, semi-dry finish, thin, low carbonation. 4

Bottle into Mug

Appearance- Dark brown with light hues, light tan head

Aroma- Bready malts, caramel sweetness, dark toastyness light but there

Flavor- Baked bread, caramel, some seep malts, slight hop presence

Mouthfeel- medium/light, good carbonation

Overall- Very true to style, and that's good not one of my favorite styles though. A very drinkable beer and worth a try.
