Drummer Dunkles Vollbier

Here's a quicky for ya.

This Dunkles Vollbier from Brauerei Drummer is a tasty looking dark amber with an equally appealing, clean, caramel-focussed aroma with hints of fresh apple. Promising, and on first sip I was content.

It's definitely driven by simple caramel-malt flavours, but with an added, and really nice, burnt caramel undertone. Thankfully it's not over-sweet despite the toffee driven backbone. The apple-like, fresh bitterness takes a while to get established, but once it does, it adds a subtle note. This is a simple, subtle beer, but its simplicity is one that rather appeals to me.

A quick question to the floor. Do you like short bursts like this, or do you prefer things to be grouped a little more?

Short bursts are easier for future reference purposes. So that one.

Short bursts are fine. Unless there is a story to tell about the brewery, the pub or whatever.
