This German style dark lager is a regional specialty from southern Thuringen and northern Franconia in Germany.
It balances a complex malt flavour with a generous addition of noble hops, with notes of caramel.
The Special beer is rumoured to have strange powers, in that over a few pints, you seem to lose your ability to say ‘no’ to more. Don’t believe us? Well, have a taste of it yourself and see. But we warned—you don’t know the power of the dark side…umm…lager.
