HOLZAR PRIVATBRAUEREI DER HIRSCHBRAU

Holzar Privatbrauerei Hirschbrau. You can stop tripping over your tongue now because whatever they want to call it, this is a dunkel. 

And it's a pretty good dunkel, without being one of the greats. We found this at a petrol station in Bavaria, which is always a good sign. And if you're really keen you can get it in a four-litre bottle. I'm not that keen, though i must admit to spending a ridiculous amount of time talking myself out of it.

What you get here is a wonderfully crisp flip-top pop, then it pours into a beautifully frothy head that doesn't last long.

It has a deep, rich colour and smells faintly of bourbon and toast. 

PJ didn't rate it, but he had but a mouthful and was coming off a Franziskaner Weissbier, so what would he know?

I had the full bottle (the creative director's mouthful notwithstanding) and got more into it as i went along. 

That's because it starts out tasting like you've spread a thin layer of caramel onto multi-grain toast, then it adds a soft layer of smokiness over it.

I liked it. I'm already planning my next Bavarian refill at the same joint...

 

8/10
