12 oz. bottle. Good amber/brown color. Decent head that doesn’t last too long. Malty and nutty flavor. Finishes somewhat dry. An overall acceptable beer. Looking forward to drinking this when it’s hot.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice amber color with a thin tan head. Light aroma of malts and nuts with a hint of floral hops. Flavor is sweet with hints of roasted malts and caramel with a subtle hoppy finish. This would make a nice summer beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from MrChopin. Pours a murky golden brown with almost no head. Minty, vegetal, munich malt aroma, licorice and fennel and charcoal. Good complexity. Clean, lightly spicy, and quite pleasant. In the mouth there is a very mild veggie and white sugar sweetness, hazelnut and cashew, with surprisingly a little bit of alcohol burn in the late finish, along with a touch of noble hop bitterness. Easy drinking, dead on style. I wish more brewers were brewing lagers like this.

Caramel and nutty aroma. Brown/amber color with an off white head. Taste is lightly malty, nutty, slightly sweet. Watery mouthfeel. Middle of the road beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap @ brewpub: Amber color with a sweet leather aroma and taste. Also some notes of splinters in the flavor followed by a soapy finish. Ok.

This poured a brown color with a small white head. Aroma was slightly roasted,and a bit nutty, some sweetness too. Flavor was very watery and bland, but nothing offensive, some sweetness and slightly roasted.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap in the Church. I thought the color was medium brown and not as dark as some other dunkels I have tried. Flavor was smooth and balanced. Palate was fairly light. The finish was clean.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours medium brown with one finger head, leaving a crown with decent lacing.
Smells nutty at first, swirling releases a floral and hoppy scent.
Tastes semi-light with a taste tilted more toward malt, not much in the way of bitter. Great intro to craft.
Mouth is light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.
Drinkability is good, this is a semi light lager, easy to drink, slam, and session.

On tap in Church - Poured a clear dark caramel with some decent head and lacing. Smooth with malt and light roast on the palate, a hop grain body. Well balanced, light-sweet grain aroma. Liked this one!
