3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
So my uncle got a keg directly from the brewery, and I think this means mine is much fresher than most....must be cause it was hoppy and delicious. I donít think that itís a dunkel...if it is itís the hoppiest dunkel ever. To me tastes like a browner, slightly maltier pale ale thatís dry hopped to high heaven. Slightly malty and light body, then a smash of hops on the backend thatís tasty and super refreshing. I drank about 10 of these after skiing and was very happy.

(draft @ Tap and Mallet - Rochester, NY) Clear copper pour with a thin tan head. Very mild aroma. Mainly caramel malts with a very light hop hint. Flavor is extremely weak and watery. Some caramel sweetness and thatís about it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a clear medium brown hue with hardly any head. Aroma was mild and basically of toasted malts and some mild vanilla. Flavor had some nice sweet malt notes and some hops, there was a grapefruit flavor in the background, but the beer was all around one dimensional. Palate was light. Carbonation was slightly elevated.

not really seeing as how this is either a wheat or a winter ale, as its mostly a lot of up front hops and some caramel tones. really more of an amber.

Bottle. Surprisingly hoppy aroma and flavor for a winter ale. Good overall flavor. Slightly sweet at first with a good hop bitterness in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours clear light copper with a large fairly long-lasting frothy/creamy/fizzy beige head. Dry aroma, mild roast, slightly metallic weak herbal bitterness, a hint of cocoa. Taste is ... not bad - cocoa, a bit of weak coffee, tries to be sweet, but mostly vaguely bitter, no alcohol. Light body, mild carbonation, a nice light dry herbal nutty/malty finish. Maybe a bit watery, but tasty and no metal after an initial hint of it.
