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.

Appearance is a lovely cloudy brown with a rich head. Aroma is smoky and malty with a yeasty overtone. The lively flavor is rich, malty and smoky. This beer has an edge to it, but it goes down well with some yeastiness in the aftertaste. A good beer to finish a drinking session or to come after dinner.

Candied malt aroma, cloudy copper, medium vanilla head. Well roasted malt flavour, nutty too, very pleasant bitterness. Pretty good beer.

Completely unimpressive. Ok flavor, but thin. Sweet opening a little cloying with a little lemony citrous middle , finish a little bitter. Gordon Biersch seems to worry more about making pretty beers than tasty beers.

(Draft: Gordon Biersch Brewing Co. in San Diego, CA) Decent enough and enjoyable, I usually order 1 Dunkles each time I go to Gordon Biersch (where the meatloaf rocks BTW!); This medium bodied brew has a toasty, malty flavor as the main focus; It’s moderately sweet, lightly hoppy, mildly bitter, with a slight sourness toward the finish; Not much aroma, being just vaguely malty; Mahogany color; Tan head has average size on the pour, but fades to a thin sheen within a few minutes; Lots of interesting spiderweb lacing is left on the glass

On tap @ Gordon Biersch Mission Valley. Pored a very dark hazy copper color. Nose is mostly of malts....some dark fruit as well. I picked up a nice hint of cherries on the tounge. A very nice Dunkle.

Not bad. On tap at Whitby, On. location. Deep brown colour, large tanned head. Nice slightly hoppy aroma. Love the cloudy, dirty look to this beer. Taste is a little less interesting, but surprisingly thin given the look. Decent finish. Probably the best beer of I’ve here so far.

On tap @ GB (San Diego) - Pours a clear amber color with a thin off white head. Has a slight floral hop aroma with a good bit of caramel malt. Flavor is malty sweet. Light to medium body. A nice easy drinking beer.

Dark wheat flavors, a bit of caramel roastiness, toasted maltiness, hazelnuts and just a bit of toffee. Very tame, and too light in body.

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.
