Impression: This is brewed in commemoration of their fight against the Swedes in the 30 Years War.  It’s a deep chestnut brew with malty nose tinged with roast. It’s a bit fuller and maltier than the Schmäußbräu I had on tap. It’s called a Dunkles Spezialbier and guess that fits. It’s a Fest version of an Altfränkisch so probably tastes more like their Lucas Cranach, which I preferred. The finish could be drier and think I like their light colored beers over the dark ones in general after sampling quite a few.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
