3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap in Hawaii. Dark brown in color with an averaged sized tan head. Nutty, roasted and malty smells and tastes. This was my 1st Dunkel style and it wasn’t that bad (I liked it more than other Gordon Biersch Beers).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark yet light-bodied, and I had no problems driking a huge mug of this. Had a nice aftertaste that didn’t wear thin. Surprisingly smooth considering there is no filtration involved.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Oakville Darker amber, more head than the rest. Slightly tan head, with hints or roasted flavour. Better mouthfeel than the rest, but a bit on the thin side. This and their Hefeweizen were the best offerings I thought.

Tap. Maple syrup and malt aroma. Medium brown color with small head. Molasses/maple syrup and moderate malt flavor. NIce flavor but like their Weizen, a bit weak. If they could get more body, they’d really have some great beers.
