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.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Draft at the brewpub Columbus, Ohio - Pours dark brown with a creamy offwhite head that stays pretty well and laces some,.. Aroma is toffee, chocolate, and a bit of brown sugar. Flavor is a nice blend of toffee, caramel, chocolate, and a touch of roasted malt. Palate is medium bodied smooth without a great deal of carbonation. Nice beer.

By far the best Gordon Biersch beer I have ever had. (Draught-GBPA) It tastes as good as the photo looks. Moderately malty and lightly hoppy in aroma. Creamy, off-white head that mostly diminishes. Reddish brown body (like the photo). Moderately sweet in flavor, with a solid, moderate hop bitterness. A winner.

My favorite beer from Gordon Biersch. Gorgeous hoppy aroma, multitextured body, sinus-filling finish and yet, very drinkable. Perfect beer at PacBell park.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Draught, Atlanta location. Clear red-copper body with mild carbonation and a creamy off-white head. Appearance does not square with the "unfiltered" claim on the menu but I guess it could have settled. Munich malt aroma with dark bread crusts and black tea plus caramel. Flavor has more tea qualities and a prominent scorched sweet element like over-baked cookies. Instantly cloying and over-satiating. Insipid beer aimed at a beer clown’s palate.

on tap @ San Diego. As nice as that head looks on the beer in the picture that wasn’t how mine was served. Mine had almost no head but still looked appetizing. I found it somewhat sweet of chocolate and of malt. Maybe it was just me but i tasted as if some orange and tea was there as well.?.?. The next few days i kept thinking how much i wanted another glass of this but i have’nt gone back yet.

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.
