2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy amber with moderate tan head. Aroma is initially a bit sour and yeasty, with a more subtle caramel aroma later. Taste is quite bland, not much there - a bit of sweetness, but just barely. There just isn’t much here - I was expecting a lot more.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with moderate white head that dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma is wheat along with some light citrus. Flavor is light toast, some tart fruitiness and a little bit of clove. Thin fizzy mouthfeel. Not a bad beer per se, but this is lacking the roasted maltiness of a traditional dunkel.

single bottle from Kroger, mix-pick six pack (this, pyramid okto, hopadillo, + 3 rodeo clowns) .. . pours a rather lifeless mop water brown .. low foam .. . odd bitterness .. mild esters .. light chocolate banana and soiled bark .. . wow, way to dumbed down and a bit disappointing .. . . I have to go now. My planet needs me.

Not my favorite, but not bad. This pours a deep amber color, with a yeast aroma. Its flavor is subtle with spice just sneaking in.

Une bière brune et son anneau chétif. Un nez de blé grillé à travers un murmure d’épices. Bof. Un goût qui n’est pas très relevé. Il y a de l’eau et quelques saveurs de blé épicé. En bouche, un corps plutôt faible avec des bulles très actives et une texture aqueuse. Une finale légère et sans conséquence directe sur mon bonheur. Rebof.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a goblet. Dirty copper color with a thin head.
It smells like it wants to be a dunkel but it just needs some more practice. Wet hay and cherry smell.
Watery taste, an attempt at the malty sweetness and a short finish.
Descent texture. Smooth and fluffy with moderate carbonation.
An okay beer, not a good dunkel.

Thin reminds me of the crystal clear lighter German types nothing offensive here slight clove and banana taste Miss that old Michelob Dunkel Weiss they had a few years ago that was a nice dark beer. Decent attempt at this style it works and sure beats a Bud.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle. Appearance is amber-orange and cloudy. Head is minimal to non-existent. Aromas of banana, bubblegum, and a hint of nutmeg. Strong flavors of banana and nutmeg. Medium-body with lively carbonation and a strong, slightly dry, finish.
This is not a favorite of mine. The problem isn’t that the beer doesn’t have any flavor, it’s that it has TOO MUCH flavor. There are so many different flavors in this that it just ends up being a bizarre melange that doesn’t really work well together.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light brown pour, very thin head. Nice aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg along with spicy yeast. Flavor is very "soft" with cinnamon, banana, and more spice. However.... the finish is an unexpected combo of sour apple, then leaves a sugary coating on the tongue at the very end. Moutfeel is extremely watery, which combined with the sugary finish makes this disappointing. Started strong, but ends poorly.
