Beautiful looking in the glass, clear red-orange. Sticky head with nice lacing. Aroma is germanic malts and some light caramel. A really fine drinking beer. Superbly balanced, worthy of its heritage. Yum.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear dark amber with small white head that sticks around. Aroma of bread, caramel and light booze. Taste is boring - nice malt base with light hops that barely come through. Bread, roastedness, light nuttiness. Eh.

12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a dark amber color with a medium head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, toasted malts, caramel and very faint dark fruits. Taste is toasted malts, cherries and berries, caramel and a dark fruit finish. Very faint hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Enjoyable beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Says here this beer is a dunkel. I suppose it makes sense as it quite malty for a lager. Amber color with no head and a caramel sweet nose. Tastes like candy corn. First beer from Full Sail and I wasn’t expecting much. Nothing really stands out here, overall pretty unimpressed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz bottle. Overall I was more impressed with this beer than I was first expecting. Pours a amber color, small mostly white head. Aroma is a bit grassy, with touches of grains. A very clean beer, without any offensive touches to it. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle as a bonus from a trade with LtDan- thanks, Dan! Pours a clear copper color with a small off-white head that leaves a film as a cap on the beer. Aroma of banana, caramel malts, toast, nuts, cherry, hops, and mild spices. Flavor of caramel malts, nuts, toast, sugar, mild spice, hops, funk, and a mineral note. Light-medium bodied, with average carbonation and a funky finish. Sweet, bitter, nutty, and funky. Somewhat chewy in mouthfeel. Interesting beer and not skunky like a lot of German dunkels, but still has a consistent and unusual funkiness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden with white head, aroma is biscuity and floral. Taste is lager like with a bit of floral sweetness that goes into a bready malt and finishes a bit dry.
