3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2015 From BandC. Reminds me of the early days of craft beer lots more flavor than the BMC stuff but still easy drinking. Not as complex as many others or as hoppy. However it was smooth and thirst quenching with some chocolatey malty flavor as well. Serving bottle

A decent Dunkel. Good dark amber flavor. I probably would rated this dunkel higher but I regard dunkels as some of the beers so you got to do it right to get a good rating from this cat.

This one poured a medium amber with a short duration head. The malt profile was definitely nutty, with a hint of chocolate thrown in. The hops were just balancing as you would expect with a dunkel, and were resinous in nature. It went down easy and smooth. Recommended.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Deep amber body. Frothy, beige head. Light aroma of raw grain, bread, nuts. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Slight tartness also in the finish. Raw grain taste along with notes of toast, maybe a little chocolate. Pretty standard, Pretty bland.

Had this one bottled from BInny’s in St. Charles, Illinois. Loved the name; bought it because we have a greyhound... otherwise, a fairly common style and a common sample of it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/12/12
Aroma: The nose is fairly malty, some bread, chocolate, a little roast, and light caramel
Appearance: It pours a dark amber color with a creamy beige head and somewhat sheety, sticky lace
Flavor: Tastes mid-plus sweet, with lots of malty flavors, some light roast, and pretty much no bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a soft-to-average carbonation, and a light stickiness
This one is pretty drinkable, but it isn’t all that exciting. Still though, I liked it well enough. In a style like this that doesn’t usually have a ton interesting going on, this is a more then solid example.
