From Hipercor. In Bavaria hefe glass. Playing Draw Slasher. Sweet and highly drinkable, with some notes to raisins. Light body but pleasant feel and correctly hopped to compensate sweetness

What do we have here? Excellent clear copper lager with kinda beige head, stiff monolith, lasting long. Smell - bear den, slightly diluted, woodcutter's sweat.) Taste is more sweet, malty, low hop profile. Good landbier with light body and low carbon dioxide.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

L: Pours a semi-opaque mahogany color. Thick off-white head that falls slowly.

S: Toasted grains and brown sugar.

T/F: Semi-sweet malts and brown sugar. Not overly complex. Mild hops at the finish. Fairly carbonated and a bit fizzy on the mouthfeel.

O: Overall... I just wasn't all that impressed, and not one of the better dunkels I had in Germany... possibly better on tap? Not bad by any stretch, but no reason to re-visit either.
