Erdinger Weisbier Dunkel - Nescafe anyone?

Not that I've had many, but wheat beer and especially darker ones appeal to me. I spotted this in the supermarket so I decided that it should be a good one. Or at least that's what I thought.
This turned out to be quite mild tasting. An unassuming dunkel if there is such a thing!
The best I can describe is that it tasted of a slightly burnt, watery, instant coffee. The fact that it went flat quickly added to the idea.
I guess if you were having a tasting night you could start with this one and work up from there. At least it wouldn't turn you off the style.
The Verdict
A bit mild and uninspiring for me.
Erdinger Weisbeer Dunkel - 50cl - 5.6% alcohol - Germany
