Julius Echter's Hefe-Weiss-Dunkel

Time for school boys. This Dunkelweizen is typical of your German beers. Breaking it down on the dancefloor, The Hefe-weiss refers to the Wheat, and Dunkel is the Dark. So what you got is dark, wheat beer. It has the bitter hops, though not overly obnoxious like a "hoppy beer" and a smooth taste like most dark beers. If you were blindfolded and beaten you might confuse it with an IPA, though it'd be hard to make much sense outta your ugly, beaten mouth. It definitely has an aftertaste so I wouldn't suggest any more than 1 or 2 at a time. If you slam these suckers all night you're a better man than me. For what it is, based of the classy bearded chap on the label, it's a pretty good bargain. I picked up 500mL for $4, however it tastes stronger than it actually is, a mere 4.9% ABV. I wouldn't rush to get this again, but it definitely doesn't taste like a mouthful of poop, to put it poetically.

Drinkability: 3/10
Taste : 5/10
Value: 6/10

Overall: 4.7/10
