3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Rehoboth Brewpub-Cloudy amber/mahogany color w/a moderate tan head & good lacing which lasted thru the brew. Sweet aroma of roasted malt & wheat. Has a definite wheat flavor on the front end which reminded one of drinking a Hefe, with traces of banana & spice. Then the malt backbone kicks in w/traces of molasses, roasted malt, & a subtle smokey flavor which balances this brew very well. Smooth, easy drinking session type brew, was very refreshing after a short, after work bike ride. This one was a winner.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at pub in Rehoboth. Pretty decent dunkel. Banana overpowers the oak, though there was some smoky woodiness. Palate was a bit slippery (though I guess that this is typical for the style).
