Arrived in Augsburg on 30SEP09 and checked into my Gasthaus. That done, I needed some food and Bier. Why, how convenient? A brewpub only a five minute walk down the street! A 0.5l of Schwarzbier (for 2.90EU) was my first thirst-slaker.

The tall glass was holding a deep, clear chestnut bier. Slow, steady carbo in the form of minute bubbles proceeded topside, helping create a 1/4" layer of beige foam. The head lasted well, though little lace was left behind. Had a mild nose, with some roast and caramel. A solid medium body and a fairly nice and even presence on the tongue made for a good mouthfeel.

Malts are nice here, putting down a thin layer of sweetness on the palate. There's some caramel here, too, with a touch of light roastiness present. More like a Dunkel than a Schwarzbier, imo, as it's not as dark colored or bitter. Still tasty though! Zum Wohl!!
