A 500ml bottle with a BB of Sept 2014. Acquired a while back from a supermarket.

Poured into an Erdinger weissbier glass (yes!). Bottle conditioned. A deep reddish-brown hue with plenty of fine sediment and intense carbonation; appears opaque in the glass. Produces a huge head of creamy light-brown foam that lasts for quite a while before settling as a patchy surface layer. Aroma of toasted grain with hints of caramel malt, wheat, earthiness, fruity yeast esters and subtle stewed leaves. OKish but lacking in character.

Tastes of toasted caramel malt with a dry finish. Notes of caramel, wheat, mild grain, earthiness, vague fruity yeast esters and stewed leaves. Faintly sweet, followed by a mild, yeasty character upon swallowing. No bitterness to speak of. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with prickly carbonation and a somewhat insubstantial body for the style. Lightly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of dry yeast, caramel and faint wheat.

Drinkable but nothing special - about par for Erdinger. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are decidedly lacklustre. Caramel and light wheat notes with some yeastiness - muddled and indistinct. So-so body. Goes down without complaint but a pretty forgettable dunkel - no need to hunt it down.

Very nice color with a thick light brown head

Very mild smell of grain

The taste is roasted caramel malt and is very mild, not too sweet at all.

The mouth-feel is very pleasant with medium carbonation

Overall this is a great mild beer for someone not looking to adventure outside the box. This beer is sweet with not a lot of carbonation. Don't let its dark haziness fool you into thinking this will be too rich. This is a very easy beer to drink and it gets extra points because of its cheap price.
