Bottle. Amber through and through. That’s what this Dunkel reminded me of: a good old amber. Darker in appearance with a breadier filled aroma, but the taste was hop laced with a roasted note in the middle, bitter finisher.

Clear dark brown. Interesting take on a dunkel in that it is not overwhelming in any manner but overall just a bit plain. Flat and a bit thin with some carmel sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. A very exciting pour, dark brown with an off-white head and carbonation racing up the sides. The nose is something I could not place, but resembles butterscotch. Body is similar with some green tea and other astringent aspects. The carbonation is great, the body is just a bit thin.

Pours a dark amber and is still clear enough to see through. The head was gone instantly. Caramel and bready notes. Taste is barely bitter with a clean finish. Average but very refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught and 22 oz bottle. Great dark pour with very little head. Nose is nutty, malty with just a touch of hop and cocoa. Taste immediately flows through a nice bitter cocoa, then coffee, then sweet toffee, then a little malt, then some hop bitterness, back to the bakers chocolate... this is well done stuff with little carb (fits the style well) and a medium body. Very good, especially after a 5 month cellaring in my basement.

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.

Tasted at the Otown throwdown. Dark amber color. Candy sugar and banana. Really like the carbonation, and sweet malts.
