The lager pours a crystal-clear reddish copper and is topped by a thick-cap of dense ivory white foam that shows fine retention. A fine lattice of lace forms along the sides of the glass as the head slowly reduces.

Aroma

The aroma is bright and fragrant with caramel, toasted brown bread, and nut. Buttered biscuit also appears as the beer warms.

Flavor

The palate begins with toasted bread and caramel and transitions to a taste of nut with subtle notes of fruit. Finishes with a malty flavor of lightly burnt toast that’s been spiked with a bite of earthy, spicy, and grassy hops. The bitterness lingers through the finish with a flash of caramel and brown sugar appearing on the swallow.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is soft with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Finishes dry and astringent.

Overall

Its appearance is quite lovely and its aroma is strong, delightfully complex, and most importantly, enticing. Its palate leans too hoppy for the style but the clean profile and dry bitterness of the Flensburger Dunkel do make this Lager quite easy to drink.
