3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours light amber with a slight, creamy beige head. Aroma is fruity hop over caramel. Med body +. Flavor is grassy! Fruity is very low key. There’s a nice roast malt backbone. For me this is more dry than not, and grassy is good. Nice.

12 ounce bottle from State Line. Pours a slight hazy bronze color with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts and faint hops. The taste is toasted malts, citrus hops. Medium bodied. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Pony Bar. Pale amber colour. The nose has a little bit of light caramel behind some industrial malts. A touch of crackery malt and a fairly soft sweet base. There is a fairly light palate along with some light sort of fusel character. Meh - I don't think I'll ever really like this style.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Malty grainy aroma, with some light sweetness. The flavor has this weird wet-dog thing going on, with some weird sweetness and light hops. Not that good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-copper color with a small foamy tan head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet caramel and light vegetal malts. The flavor was sour, tangy and vegetal with notes of caramel and dark fruits. Medium caramel and fruit finish. Moderately full bodied. Eh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded pretty quickly. The nose is slightly sweet with some soggy grains and just a light hint of hops. Flavor wise it’s a bit bland, some slight honey and bready malt sweetness without much backing from hops. Slightly sticky and lingering on the finish. It lacks any sense of crispness or heft to the body. Not terrible, but not something I’d ever seek out again.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
New Beer Distributors, NY 355ml ($2): Pours a light amber with barely any head. Aroma is bubblegum and nondescript dark fruits. Taste is slightly sweet, uncomplex, and light. Leaves some bockish aftertaste. Pretty uninteresting, and I don’t know that I would reach for this sooner than I would for a pale lager.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 From a bottle garnished from house. From looks, not a dunkel by any stretch; gold lager. Wew, first taste is quite strong and fer sure there’s no dunkler in this dunkler bock. Craemy off white head. Candy aroma. Some detectable co2 in there, just barely. Really comes across as bitter but more in a dull old hop and malt way. Finish is bitter medicine. Yes, quite alkified. Almost cloying at times.
