3.9/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz green twist ... "Original Munich Formula" is stated on the label. No freshness date seen.

Appearance: Deep rich brown colour with a frothy tan lace ... looks appetizing.

Smell: Clean ... faded caramel, light creamed coffee and a hint of herbal hop.

Taste: Medium bodied with a little chewiness in the beginning. Crisp mouth feel ... dark malt characteristics kick in a little giving a light twang to the palate. Small kiss of hop help to balance the sweetness and go hand and hand with a carob roasted malt flavour. The finish gets even better with a dark bready taste that lingers with a mild residual sweetness.

Notes: Yummy! Great when paired up with a ruben on dark rye ... nice mellow dark malt character, a decent drink for sure.

Bottle served at the Spatenhof, already poured into a 500 ml mug by the staff. On to the beer:

The beer arrived with two fingers of head, a light chestnut color with amber hues, and leaving a few strings of lace around the mug. The aroma is pleasant, not too sweet. Mild toast and raisins comes to mind....hmmm, raisin toast? Having previously tasted a Lowenbrau Original in the state years ago, I had a dampened impression of the brand, only to be pleasantly surprised how this tasted. It has a deep taste; toasted with some raisin, light grassiness, chocolate covered raisins, yet never goes too sweet. It also feel nearly full bodied and very smooth.

A very good surprise indeed. I wouldn't mind to see this variety imported into the states.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a 12 oz. mug.
This beer pours a gorgeous dark amber to brown, but crystal clear with an off-white head that lingers a while. Not a strong aroma, but what is there is dominated by sweet, grainy malts. The flavor is dominated by roasted malty sweetness with a nice light hop finish, just enough to balance the malts. The body is medium with enough carbonation to keep it from being too heavy. Crisp and refreshing.
