2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(swing top bottle) Slightly hazy orange to amber coloured hue with a minimal off-white foamy head. Slightly sweet and dusty malty aroma with faint traces of honeyish fruitiness and resiny hops. Light-sweet flavour, medium to light body, smooth carbonation; slightly papery malt character with a touch of honey and perfumed hops. Very light bitter, papery malty finish. Rather disappointing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (500ml best before 06.01.07). Thanks to my friend Austin for bringing this back from Germany in his luggage. Clear amber-gold with a solid foamy-fizzy white head. Sweet aroma, sweet cereal grain, grape, perfumy hops, buckwheat honey - seems a bit sweet for a dunkel, but I find it very appealing. It’s like nectar! - sweet, floral, perfumy and a solid undercurrent of light but insistent perfumy/floral hops. Sticky, sryupy mouthfeel, virtually no carbonation, quite a sweet finish, but it’s a quick finish, no aftertaste - I’m pretty sure this isn’t really anything like a dunkel - seems more like a mead to be honest - but nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice amber color with small fizzy, white head. Hops aroma and somewhat sweet malt flavor. Clean finish. Little-to-no aftertaste. Doesn’t weigh heavy ior fill you up. Not a dunkle, not a pils, not a weizen. But a nice spot in the middle.

My first dunkle and it fits the description nicely. Pours great...color, carb, and head all good. Nice aroma. Friend of mine brought it over from Germany...I wish I could get it here...It would be my summer regular brew!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good head, with a nice amber color (appears to be unfiltered) also leaves nice lacing. Malty and somewhat hoppy aroma (balanced). Good malt flavor, medium-full body, with a nice, clean, and slightly hopped finish. Overall one of the better beers I’ve had to date.
