Yet another vendor at the Altstadtfest; yet another different bier.... A 0.4l glass set me back 3.10EU.
Had never heard of Schanzenbräu before, so my interest was piqued. They also offered a Hell and a Rot, but I felt like going dark here. My mug was holding a deep, dark brown liquid. Some tinges of mahogany are evident at the edges, otherwise it's dense and opaque. A beige head was finely bubbled, a thin layer giving coverage, though mostly at the edges. Some suds clings well to the glass. A bit of light malt is in the nose, with a touch of choco and a hint of roast. Near-medium in the body category, it was very passable on the tongue.
There's subtle sweetness here, with roasted, bitter dark choco notes present. A suggestion of florality appears in the dryish finish. Overall, a decent bier. Would have liked to try more, but this was my 5th different Altstadfest offering on this day, and my palate needed a rest! Prosit!!
