LOWENBRAU DUNKEL

Lowenbrau Dunkel. The first victim from the smuggled case of 20 different Munich beers.

Lowenbrau is one of the most respected of the Big Six Munich brewers and it forgoes its famous bright blue labels for a black one that kinda suits its dunkel.

The dark ale pours beautifully and smells like an enchanting mix of single-malt Scotch, toasted cereals and yeast. Lots of yeast.

It's initially disappointing in that it's a touch sour compared to the best of Bavaria's dunkel fleet, but that dissipates as it warms up a bit. (At 2 degrees Celsius, the thermostat on the "big" fridge - also known as the balcony - is set a bit too low at the moment).

I'd have another one in a heartbeat, but not if there was a Paulaner, Kloster Andechs, Maxlrain or Hacker-Pschorr dunkel standing next to it.

 

6/10
