COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
is a full-bodied, malty beer. It is our only lager beer served unfiltered, the way all beer was traditionally made years ago. Despite its dark color and rich caramel aroma, Dunkles is light in texture and smooth to drink.

Tap in Palo Alto. Dark amber/brown. Nice malt and hop aroma. Good body. It’s smooth but also leaves a chalky and malty aftertaste.

hopscotch (8785) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 Draft... The aroma was slightly sweet and spicy. Something like cinamon. Can’t place it. Also, soapy water in the nose. Maybe they had just washed the glass. Clear, dark mohogany. Foamy, big, off-white head. Malty, but not sweet. Well balanced. A touch fruity. Slightly thin, watery mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Finishes clean and dry. Very good beer. The restaurant in DC needs to rinse their glasses better. Dish soap ruins what is otherwise a very nice nose.

A quality brew, would like more character, a little more hop than a german version but still a nice session brew.

Re-rate: I tried this one again and was not as impressed this time around. The more quality beers I try, the more discriminating my palate becomes.

Panzuriel (1283) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2002
A nice American take on a German standard. A good Dunkel. Nice and flavorful but still thin and clean. A great Dunkel. Even better on tap.

Braudog (5578) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2002
Draft at the Las Vegas brewpub; Very dark red with chocolate foam head. Hearty but not overly heavy. Roasty taste. Adheres well to the glass. True to the German dunkles.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2002
Draught. Medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted light bread, nutty, caramel), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of plum and orange. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - JUL 2, 2002
One of the most unusual beers I’ve had in a while. It had several flavor stages, one I didn’t care for somewhat like a chemical taste, but the carmel and malt flavors were quite good.
