5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   For a Dunkel, it sure has a dark Amber color, reddish hints, very carbonated, moderate to light frothy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Pale cereal aroma, minor breadiness.   Just doesn’t come across as a Dunkel, but more of a bright Amber.   Quite cerealy on the tongue, very mealy.   Tiz pretty clean tho.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Tiz smooth, clean on the exit, with lingering cereal like malts.   Its okay, certainly easy to put back, but very forgettable.   The biggest thing it has going for it is the fact that its fairly clean on the finish.   Seems well made, just not what I was thinking it was going to be.   Meh...

notalush (5000) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2009
12 ounce bottle - presumably a new batch of the original recipe - a very smooth, malt forward lager - medium body, with creamy, soft carbonation - very light bitterness makes way quickly for nutty, chocolaty malt sweetness - a tiny hint of tartness way in the back, and some drier, almost roasty notes - a touch of noble hop bitterness in the finish - quite sessionable, balanced, and clean - another underrated Full Sail product.

Not much to say about this guy except that it’s a great tasting slightly malted lager that goes great in hot weather.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours a light brown with decent sized head. Aroma is bready malt with a hint of hops. Flavor comes in with a clean light roasty maltiness with a hint of nuttiness leading to a dry and lightly bitter short finish. Medium carbonation mixed with the clean and faintly caramel and sweet malts makes it a great drinker with a clean smooth finish begging you to open another.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 27, 2009
12 oz bottle. Light brown pour, small off white head. Aroma is very bready, light biscuit malts and light citrus hop. Flavor is hefty on malt with a little bit of citrus hop, thin mouth. Not bad, but not something I’d reach for again.

glennmastrange (2324) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Bottle. Moderate grain, roasted and caramel for the malt, moderate perfume note for the hops and light leather for the yeast, with background notes of wood date and alcohol. Head is small, wispy, off-white, with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear copper. Flavor starts moderately sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic. Palate is medium, oily and has a lively carbonation. An okay Dunkel, but there is an artificial sweetness that’s noticeable throughout.

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2009
This brew pours a deep chestnut color with a medium beige head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Nutty and malty aroma. Medium, smooth body with flavors of roasted malt, nuts and hops. The finish is nutty like cashews with notes of roasted malt and moderately bitter hops left over. Decent overall.

emptytankard (36) - Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2009
Great rich brew, pretty much on par with a good German bock. Pours a dark copper with a quickly dissipating head. Bready, with some nice cocoa notes and very pleasant sweetness. Minimal hop presence, with a nice smooth finish.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
illidurit (2172) - Petaluma, California, USA - APR 3, 2009
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Dark copper color with a creamy beige head that gives way to a thin cap, leaving wisps of lacing. Aroma is dark bread crust maltiness with a tinge of orangey hoppiness. Flavor is nutty and bready with a very significant hop presence. A little caramel, a little candied orange, some cocoa powder, and some roasted malt. All the flavors blend together nicely to make a very tasty (although not exactly bock-ish) beer. Light bodied, nice carbonation level, no trace of alcohol. Very drinkable.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Very drinkable with some flavor and bite. Not worth a special rating, but not something I would turn down.
