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 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to decaturstevo for sharing this one. Seems fairly straight forward and tasty - Nicely grainy with a hint of rye. I could see this being a tasty session ale

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown pour. Ruby highlights. Short white head. Aroma is caramel, grains, spicy hops and light earthy notes. Taste is big caramel, grains, spicy hops, earthy hops, light herbal notes and dried fruit. Body is medium with a soft but prickly carbonation. Ends with more caramel notes, toasted malt, dried fruit, spicy hops and earthy notes. Very tasty!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
An aroma of brown sugar and malt. A deep copper brown pour. A sweet malt flavor and a sourish bitter finish. Good carbonation and decent mouthfeel. A good beer that the flavor follows the dark color quite well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A 12-oz bottle shared by Brewfiend. Pours a heavy muddy copper brew with a thin white head. Too fast of a dissolve. Aroma has roasted barley malt, sweet biscuits, pitted fruit, and a touch of caramel. Taste is medium body, lots of carbonation and a slight acidity aftertaste.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Deep ruby tinted strong golden/amber coloured body with a short tan head. Aroma of malt, a bit of hops, metal, funk and some cardboard - not very pleasant. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic tastes with a strong malt backbone and very minimal other tastes coming through. Aftertaste shows some raisins and pit fruits in the taste, but nothing too terribly pleasant - but still better than the normal taste! Overall, a pretty bad offering, all things considered. I couldn’t tell this was supposed to be a dunkel, it just didn’t taste good. I’m happy to try this, but I wasn’t happy with the quality of this one. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Goebel Liquor in Wichita, Kansas on 03-May-2008.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Darker than most lagers. This one has some body and flavor. Some hop flavor and a grainy character. Good palate and goes down very well. Alcohol is a little high for a dunkel.
