Allersheimer Landbier Dunkel
Speaking of which, Allersheimer Landbier Dunkel could end up on that list. It has an amazingly bready aroma (based on what I read in one German consumer test magazine, it seems that German testers don't necessarily see that as a good thing, but I do, if it feels right), kind of like rye bread with a nice, toasty, crispy crust. And the flavour? Yep! Definite toast, with butter. There's a suggestion of fruit, like strawberry jam, although maybe I was beginning to think of breakfast when I made the notes, though I hasten to point out that I did not have this as a pre-breakfast beer. It has a slight carbonic edge, and the finish is dry with a healthy, herb-like hoppiness. Yeah, not bad!
