Michelob’s Aventinus knock-off. Not much going on, some prune and raisins on the nose very little flavor a bit of malt and wheat. Nothing special, just another big brewery trying to make something good.

This is better than expected A-B offering. It has a pleasing aroma. It pours well with nice coloration. It has clove and banana flavor notes.

Bottle pour, hazy, muted iced-tea in color. Nice head, foamy tan, remains throughout drinking. Full aromas of bananna, plum, roasted sweet malts, yeasty. Tastes were kinda all over from front to back....sweet and satisfying when first tasted....nice mouthfeel, satisfying...and then a sweet, mellow malt to almost sour raisin finish. Interesting, I like it.....great with a good, strong cheese or ribeye.

The caramel and banana mix together perfectly and make for a very pleasant and easy drinking dunkel. Probably my favorite american macro. Served alongside an american burger and fries, this beer is quite probably what Busch meant to crown as his "King of Beers".

Poured beer had a great amber color and good head. Would I seek out this beer...no, would I have this beer again...yes. Not a bad beer overall just seems to be lacking a little for me.

copper, fizzy off-white head.
aroma, strong wheat nose, and plenty of cloves, yeasty and banana.
flavors, experiment went a little wrong here, just overly grainy/wheat, way too much spices/cloves. Keeps a malty, yeasty and banana profile that is hindered by too much wheat but it all crumbles very quickly. Picked up some possible vanilla sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
An easy drinking dunkelweisse with an appealing aroma redolent with banana and sweet malty notes. A bit of spicy clove character seeps in. Pours a deep reddish brown with a two finger tan head. Lacing is minimal. The flavor mirrors the aroma with a well balanced finish that shows tart maltiness and a bit of bitterness. Aroma hops are minimal. Well done.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of yeast, candy sugar, bananas, and spices. Flavors of dark malts, fruits, brown sugar, and wheat. A tad cloying and a touch sour at the finish. Mouthfeel is thin and not at all refreshing. This doesn’t really work for me.
