COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brünette is a European-style brown lager that mixes the robust malt character of a British brown mild with the easy finish of a German lager. Through the blending of 5 different malts, this beer features a complex, smooth and highly flavorful body with hints of nut, cocoa and a hint of coffee. With an airy, silky mouthfeel and such an incredibly complimenting series of flavors, Brünette is sure to become your new favorite lager. Brünette won a bronze medal in the American dark lager category at the 2010 World Beer Cup.

16 oz can bought from "Lifesource" in Salem OR $2.49 Pours a darker chestnut brown colour with a nice sized thick and creamy tan head. Nice creamy fudge malty aroma,very welcoming, touch of brown sugar and sweet coffee,slight floral hop. Taste is similar to the aroma but the coffee is darker and semi-bitter, surprised this is a lager, and like Brewdad says its hard to place.Its a little like Full Sail Session Black... Mouthfeeel is rather thin but adds to drinkability..carbonation is medium.. Nice session type beer whatever the style is.

Nice roast and nutty character in the aroma. Pours a nice brunette with creamy head and good lacing. Really good flavors roast, nutty and chocolate with a nice body clean finish. Bigger flavors then I was expecting. I think they got a winner here.

Draught. Pours a clear brown color with a small head on it. Nose is very toast with some slight roasting to it. Taste has some nice toast to it, with a bit of nuttiness coming through underneath. Nothing earth-shattering, but a very pleasant drink for me.

Called a Euro Dark Lager there was no style to put this under. If you have a better one please correct it. Awesome flavor and rich dark malt flavors. Nice caramel and light chocolate.
