Dunkel, 5%

A Scottish take on a German dark ale, with high carbonation, limited hopping, and a gentle finish. Initial flavours are sweet and a bit fizzy, but this settles down into a fairly mellow beer with good flavour. Additives such as coffee and chocolate can be tasted in the beer, adding richness to the flavour. I find it ironic that, even though they are suing these additives, they still market the beer as conforming to the Deutsches Reinheitsgebot (misspelled on the bottle), even though these would be strictly prohibited (and even a classic Dunkel would generally not conform to original standards). Nevertheless, it’s a pleasant enough beer, good for a slightly cooler day, but still light enough to drink with ease.

Overall score: 6.0/10
