COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Steeped in a long history dating back hundreds of years, this "old-fashioned" beer is again in vogue. Lager is the German word meaning "to store," so this beer ages three times longer than our ales do. "Dunkel" means dark in German, but don’t let the color fool you, it is by no means heavy, overbearing, or bitter. In fact, it proves to be a very drinkable session beer.

Aurelius (4030) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2013
Lightly candied, light roast, slight creosote aroma. Grainy dark malt, light astringency in the aroma. Good label; medium-dark clear brown. Cereal, lightly astringent, roast, not too sweet, low bittering. I was a little disappointed. Thanks LuckyDog.

Clear very dark ruby amber with a bubbly head that soon reduces to the rim, teardrops of lace. Taste is earthy moss and malt with overtones of nut bread and brown sugar, followed through the palate by prunes and apple, with light bittering at the finish. A rich brew with much to savor. Recommended.

This stuff is dark and murky looking in the glass. It has a rough grainy taste. The aroma is somewhat fruity yet earthy and rather unbalanced. It has a bitter finish. Nothing to write home about.

mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Pizzeria Paradiso, Georgetown bottle ($7): Pours a murky light brown with a smallish head. Aroma is lightly of fruit, grain, with a hint of hops. Taste is much the same. Nice body and mouthfeel. Quite nice, but nothing all that special.

12 ounce bottle poured a dark brown color, aromas of light roast, light nuts, some wheat, and some light cocco. Flavors are the same with a coca-cola type finish. Decent ber overall would gladly drink again.

A great brown lager. Pours a beautiful red-brown color, with a thick white head. Not too much smell, a little sweet. Taste is thick and creamy, sweet and a little nutty. Ends malty. Thick, but refreshing too! Had on tap at Carolina Ale House. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy orange red color with thin off white lacing. Medium nutty and medium aroma. The palate is a medium body with roasted nuts and a slight coffee feel. Good clean lager.

GTAEgeek (1142) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Sample at the Decatur Craft Beer Festival. Dark brown with a medium, beige head. The aroma is bread, toffee, and light floral hops. Tastes sweet and a little spicy. The palate is light to medium, grainy, and a clean finish. Overall, this is a good, flavorful, and refreshing beer. Excellent, for an American dunkel.
