A nice darker beer...itís a serious lager, and itís got a nice afteraste to it. Not much of a head on it, but good consistency.

After a lovely cascade-like head effect, the head burns off and youíve got yourself a malty lager, with a mild aroma and very few flavors of note. The palate is especially disappointing, being a bit thicker than lager, but watery and dull. Skip this one.

A very light German Dunkel. Not bad for the price, but a very simple flavor on the palate.

In the summer and fall, I can always find a safe and welcoming home for a good dunkel. Warsteinerís runs, I think, middle of the road. Nice nutty flavors around the flavor profile ... but there was a distracting metallic flavor too. Hopped a little more than I expected but that really wasnít unpleasant. Very grainy with hints of caramel. Overall, this is decent dunkel.

Itís light bodied for a rich dark beer, full in flavor with a sweet and smooth taste. Itís a beer to simply enjoy, where you donít have to wrestle with the flavors to appreciate it.
Iíve have had this beer a few times, and it seems to vary greatly by place. I donít know if itís distributer differences or what, but when itís good, itís really good!
