3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nutty brown with a disappearing head. Aromas are clean fresh and nutty with hints of cocoa. Flavours are light roast malts with a burnt toffee base. Fairly nutty and hoppy. Its a bit too light in character for a dunkel, but is a decent beer nonetheless.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. A chestnut brown coloured dunkel with little head. The aroma is on the thin side with only a little nuttiness. The taste is also thin with only a little caramel and nut coming through. I thought it seemed too cold (drank @ The Criterion Leicester) and maybe suffered for that? But not a good dunkel.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the Criterion, Leicester. I was disappointed with this product. Slightly bland Dunkel. Smooth, clean choc, but can’t escape from the fact that it’s lagered and is very quick and ckean. I still like drinking stuff like this this, but it’s just not a great beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy bronze colour, with thin off-white head. Malty aroma with some hop notes. Light, with a roated malt flavour, easy drinking.
Thinish, foamy mouthfeel. Lightly carbonated. Sweetish, with a quick, sweet , slightly hoppy finish.
A fair dunkel.

Standard Dunkles and a rather unspectacular one. Light roastmalty notes with a slight sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This reminded me of a light mild rather than a Dunkel which I usually think of as darker than this beer.
Quite malty, easy to drink and a pleasant sweetness.Different and quite pleasant.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light dunkel with very little head, but enough. Malty aroma, with a fizzy tasting fresh flavour. The beer lacks any real depth but it fits the key criteria of refreshing perfectly.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Bronze colour, good off white head and nice level of fine, natural condition. Aromas of sweet malt tinged with roast barley, some hop notes and a handfull of crystal malt. Mainly roasted malt and caramel in the mouth and a relatively brief finish with a touch of roast coffee and a delicate hoppiness
