marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Bottle from Monument Wine. Pours copper with a nice beige head and a sweet malt aroma. There is a chalky caramel malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2010
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.

5000 (6180) - 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 doesnít 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...

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2007
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread, caramel, nuts), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with light notes of alcohol, orange peel, and honey. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Dunkel or bock? Iíd call it the latter, personally. Letís get one thing straight upfront: Iíve never been a fan of Full Sail, so I didnít expect much from this one. Not that this is anything world-beating, but itís quite nice. A bit on the sweet side, yes, but clean, with both a nice malt and hop character. The average score so far (3.0) proves once again that lagers just donít get enough love here. Pity that.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20
after4ever (6059) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2007
12-oz. Pours a deep ruby-tinged brown. Thin white head that falls quickly to a ring of foam. Hollow nose, a little bit of bread there, maybe a whisper of caramel, but maybe not. This beer would clearly be a lot more comfortable if you didnít notice it had stopped by. Maybe itís going to ask you for money later. Very mild attack; thin body, light carb, very little flavor--just some weak caramel malt and then some bready yeasty aftertaste (thatís right, aftertaste, not finish). These guys let the sales success of their amber get in the way of too many of their specials--they mild everything down until thereís nothing left. Blah.

arminjewell (5994) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2010
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.

douglas88 (5789) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Bottle form the Utah Stat Store. Pours a dark amber color with a small white head. The aroma is mostly lots of toasted malts, some light fruits. A sweet nutty flavor, lots of malts, toasted flavors, some berries also. Very smooth and full flavored.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2008
Pours a copper/amber color. Light aroma of caramel malt and floral earthy hops. The flavor was the same light sweetness with a nice moderate bitter finish.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 9, 2007
Bottle: Amber color, creamy head, a bit o lacing. Nose of light malt and toast, clean noble hops and a rich bran and rice husk note. The flavor is well bodied, clean and surprisingly toasty and flavorful for a lager. Nice sweet finish and kind of a fun idea.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2008
[1500-20080617] 12floz bottle. Sweet raisiny grains aroma. Clear, dark red brown body with a quick creamy light tan head. Grainy sweet toasted malt flavour. Medium body. Average, but I’m giving it an extra point for finishing my 30th page...
