On tap at Quinton’s in Iowa City. Certainly better than the wooden nickel I had months back, but not much to it. A very pretty reddish pour but then nothing special.

This is my first try with this brewery. This beer is really creamy tasting. It is very smooth. Not a ton of flavor.

I really enjoy a good Dunkel and I think this one hit the spot. A slight malty flavor with a very smooth finish. Delicious.

The beer pours a fairly deep orange color with a good head.
The aroma is full of rich maltiness and plenty of earthy character. The beer has a light roasty aroma here too.
The flavor is again rich and malty. I’m getting a very enjoyable subtle hint of anise throughout. The beer is mildly sweet and has some spicy hoppiness. It really tastes to me more like an Oktoberfest, but I can see where it rides the line between Oktoberfest and Dunkel.
I guess I’ve not experienced the sort of qc issues that others have with this brewery, and I’m glad I’ve not. Most of the lagers I’ve had from them have been clean and nice. I hope they keep this up when they’re in Coralville at the big brewery.
