3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap in Framingham. Dark brown with reddish tints, medium off-white head. Mostly malt in the aroma, but sweet and roasted hints as well. Medium body, not the level of roast and smoke I like in the dunkel style, more sweet and bland if anything. Mostly dry finish. Not worst place.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On draught at Framingham, 3/12/05. Dark brown/mahogany color, though more dull than that sounds. Foamy, beige head and an aroma of clean yeast, ginger root and light hops. Flavor is dull, ashen and astringently spicy. No malt sweetness, or very little of it. Watery consistency. The heavy, dry spicing covers up any crisp lager bite you would expect.
