2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
DATE TASTED: October 12, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Warsteiner pokal... OCCASION: celebrating PSU’s unBILLeivable comeback against Michigan--and my son’s fifth birthday... APPEARANCE: "dark" velvet black as night body with a brownish roadside snake-colored head; lacing is nonexistent, with a random streak or spot... AROMA: classic Beck’s ping/tang hops with a doughy funky roundness; a "dirtier" version of the pilsner...PALATE: slick and oily; lightly bodied with subtle activity at the teeth...TASTE: bready, doughy and slightly malty; light hops do not really add balance or memorability...OVERALL: on the plus side, sessionable and autumnal; on the negative, almost indistinguishable from the Oktoberfest, save the presence of extra doughy malts...

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at my in-laws on Christmas day poured into a glass, clear dark brown color with white head. Aroma of pale malt sweetness, grainy, semi-metallic, minimal light roast and some caramel. Taste adds some notes of cereal, faint chocolate and light hop balance. Light body, moderate carbonation, somewhat slick with faint roast finish. Not bad for a macro.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Strongly resembles a Coca-Cola. Dark translucent red with a rapidly dissipating head with large bubbles rather than foamy. Smell like many light american lagers with a corn, wheat, and spruce hops. The malts are much more present in the taste than the aroma. Medium malts and cereal. Lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Very watery texture.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours dark translucent mahogany with an off white head. Aroma is grainy and sweet. Taste is mostly malt and grain with a slight hint of caramel. Not much to like about this beer.

Gorgeous looking beverage that does not deliver on anything else. Distinct malty backbone but the rest is the cheapest of ingredients. You’ve done it again InBev.

Smooth Dinkel style. Not overly bitter or hopped. Makes a nice easy drinking beer.

"drinkable, but ultimately substandard brew. WAYYYYY better than the "regular" stuff...more flavor, didn’t smellas bad, etc...but not something i’d get again."

There was nothing else crafty on the menu, so went with this lager. The taste is smooth but nothing to repeat the selection again.

Another dud, dark but with properties of a lager that is pretty sweat although has this weird oily metallic taste but thats only if you get past the skunk smell when opening.
Thought a dunkel needed decoction mashing where a portion of the grains are boiled and returned to the mash.?
The term Dunkel means Dark however Tmav’y Czech or Slovak which is weird for a Bremen Germany brew.

Bottle, deep brown pour with a white head, slightly sweet with roasted malt and caramel but not much better than the light Beck’s.

Nice and strange for this brewery. The style almost same as the Bavarian ones although it is known for it’s pilsners.
