2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(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 that’s 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. Brown , carmel color, smells and tastes similar. Pretty bland though. Nice lasting head on the side of the glass though. Eh

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light to moderate malt notes of cookie and nutty, light flowers for the hops, dough for the yeast, with hints of toffee, brown sugar and faint rubber. Head is small, wispy, white with some spotty and slippery lacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is clear copper. Flavor starts moderately acidic and lightly bitter, then finishes lightly acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a soft carbonation. Okay aromas, but there is not much else appealing, like the lack of any sweetness in this Dunkelweizen.
