3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Marriott Airport in Atlanta. No glass pour so not sure what it looked like. Obviously dark. Aroma was mild with bread, toffee, and caramel. Little leather smelling. Taste was less exciting than the aroma. Rather light in the toffee and caramel that can make a Dunkel so good. Mild carbonation. Medium body. Finish was a little chalky. Mediocre.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Clear dark brown with clingy beige foam. Nose is lagery with citrus pith and a hint of caramel. Taste about the same. Medium light with lively carb. Good for a lager with BBQ. I had a few.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance- medium to dark (root beer) brown. Nice tan head. Light to moderate dissipation with some lacing, but nothing noteworthy.
Smell- clean. Roasted coffee. Caramel and malt. Mineral quality (similar to an oyster stout).
Taste- burnt coffee, cocoa,
Mouthfeel- light body. Not too much carbonation. Bitter up front. Very crisp.
Overall- good. Would recommend and have again. A solid American version of a classic German style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at D’vine’s in Columbia Heights from a 12oz bottle. Watery cola brown with some thick, creamy, off white head. Nose is standard, some malt, some clove, some nuts, a little over ripened fruit. Flavors are the same, sweet, mild fruit, mild malt. Watery finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decent beer. Faint dark malt aroma. A little earthy. Bread crust brown color with a decent head. Average to thin palate with good carbonation. Not a heavy beer but coated the tongue well with flavor. Some roasted and biscuit flavors with a malt bite at the end. Not much of a hops presence, which wasn’t expected. Just OK.

Draft at SGD. Deep mahogany pour with a bubbly white head. Faint malt aroma of toast and pecans. Flavor is similar and light with a mild nutty bitterness at the end. Meh, kind of boring.
