3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the Bend brewpub. The beer is a dark brownish-amber color with a medium light beige head that recedes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, ripe fruit and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Tap at PDX brewery. Light chocolate nose, with some tangy fruitiness. Reddish/brown, with glowing ruby edges. Very light chocolate initial, hints of coffee and light smoke, medium-strength bitter tracks. Thin-medium body. Bitter for the style. Middle of the road, except for the bittering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark mud brown. Thin off white head. Dark Lagers are not too high on my list, this one was quite alright but nothing to get revved up about. I’d take it over a Pale Lager any day. Tastes sort of woody and earthy, caramel, some roasted malts and milk chocolate. A wee bit burnt and smokey too. Lightly peppy bubble time fun unit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sub-par attempt at a German dunkel, brown but not quite roasty and/or nutty enough. A good intro to the style, but pales in comparison to the German original.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep copper, clear, off-white head. Low aroma of neutral malt. Flavor: malty balance with bready Munich malt, just enough bitterness to balance it, clean lager character. Well made dunkel.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2010 From a draft pour at the Bond Street brewpub in Bend, this poured a clear cross between amber and brown with an off white head and very good lacing The nose is caramel malts. Medium body and mouthfeel. The flavor is strongly of malts and finish is mild and sweet. Not complicated but easy drinking and enjoyable.
