3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a transparent mahogany with frothy, well-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet, toasty bready dark caramel malt with a touch of Bavarian hops. Body starts with lightly sweet dark caramel maltiness along with decent bittering hop presence and earthiness toward a thinner finish. A pretty decent dunkel.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tap at St. Arnold’s in a 0.5L mug, the smallest size available. Holy ___. Deep, clear brown to deep ruby pour. Medium, soapy beige head formation. Weak retention and no lace. Nose is all detergent. Taste is soapy with saltwater. High carbonation on the palate. Very mild chocolate and cherry character, but overall there is no maltiness that say "dunkel". Really has nothing to do with the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Poured a deep, clear cola brown with a nice cap of beige head. Nose was very sweet and candy-like with chocolate, caramel, and nuttiness. Flavor was massively sweet, too... with the same notes as the nose. Cola-like mouthfeel and lighter in body. Not bad.

On draught at Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas. Dark reddish brown color with a thick and rocky cream colored head. Thin lacing. The aroma is lightly roasty and malty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wrist-breaking litre measure, Hofbrauhaus, Munich. Sweetissh caramelised nose hinting at fresh barrel. Soft, sweet and biscuity with a herbal hop background. Malted Milk, digestives, a dusting of choc. Drinks a bit like a mild 2% weaker. Gentle wood, a hint of almond, oaty malt softness on the palate. Just a chew of raisiny sweet dried fruit and cherry creeping in towards the end. Solid, but a little soporific by the litre.

Bottle 355 ml
Appearance: mahogany with hint of dark amber. Large fine off white top. Medium lacing.4-
Nose: Mineral , meadow hops , slight feel of chocolate , some bitterness. 6+
Flavor/Palate : Medium bodied. Splendid work if you look at malt character. Soft, clean and approachable in body as well in texture. Dunkel character it self felt a bit subdued. Good lager per se but not best for style.
