COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This balanced, super smooth dark lager is what you need to get through the heart of winter. With a slightly toasty character, this beer is both refreshing and warming at the same time.

650ml bottle. Bottled on 11.10.11. It pours a nice deep brownish copper with a fluffy off-white head. The smell is hop-forward. Not what I was expecting but interesting. It is really flowery with some sweet dough in the background and a hint of cocoa. The flavor leans towards both the hops and the sweetness. This brewery seems to like a decent amount of sweetness. It is pretty tried and true though, a solid dunkel.

Very refreshing for a "winter warmer" no really alcohol warming power in this one, which can be a good thing if you are planning on drinking for a long session. In the aroma I get the breweries house smell, with pilsner and munich malt, with subtle toasted notes. I would like a touch more malt in this one, or maybe a higher finishing gravity. This beer is very comparable to Warsteiner Dunkel in my opinion. Overall this is a very good beer to drink with no extreme flavors, a nicely balanced German Dunkel. Prost!

Draft at the brewery. Really enjoyed this one. Another well-balanced, authentic german brew that you can drink all day. I attempted to but had to stop so I could drive home.

Served on draft at The Waldhorn Restaurant in Charlotte on 4/6/11. Pours a clear dark red color with a large creamy offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, grainy malts and nuts. The taste is grainy malts, raisins and faint roasted notes. Medium bodied.

hopscotch (9082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle... Clear, deep copper lager with a small creamy off-white head. Decent retention. I had a hard time pulling any aromatics from my glass for a good while, but I was finally able to hunt down some malty and toasty notes accompanied by buttery toffee. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is a mish-mash of buttery toffee, caramel, minerals and earthy hops. It’s balanced quite well. Short, lightly bitter finish.

Leighton (10767) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear, bright amber-gold with a creamy, tan cap. Tasty, well rounded. Some toffee and toasted bread on the nose. Light-medium sweet with bready malts, faint leafy bitterness and toasty caramel. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Moderate sweetness at the end with dry and toasted caramel, light doughy bread. Tasty though fairly elementary.

nearbeer (3675) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Draft at CLT Airport. Clear copper with a lasting film of cream. Not much aroma; maybe some light grain and toast. Delicate flavors of toasted nut, dry grass, and hints of cocoa and caramel apple. Medium body is smooth, dry and easy drinking.

Pours a sharp and clean reddish burnt brown with two fingers of tight sandy tan head. Nose is earthy with cracker-ish malt notes and a light grassy sweetness. Flavor shows bready malt with a light herbal/earthy balance and slightly metallic bitterness. Medium light body and pretty refreshing.
