I had a couple of these off the tap two weeks ago in DC. Surprised me greatly, with a good body and nice aftertaste.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2004 Refreshingly smooth lager that also brings a nice character and flavor with it. Maybe not the most exciting lager I’ve ever tried but certainly much more than adequate.

Even on tap at the brewery, this is at best an unremarkable dunkel. The flavors simply aren’t big and strong enough, and what flavors do come through aren’t too great. How could someone who went through the Weihenstepaner University of Brewing come out with no game?

Dunkles, or ’dark’ in German, is a favorite of mine, and this beer ranks high on my dunkle master list.
A full-bodied, malty, nice caramel aroma and a nice hop bitterness in the finish. Unfiltered beers, are also a favorite as they retain the yeasty, grainy flavors I find so appealing. Quite drinkable and smooth.
