This is a light bodied dunkel and pours with a light smalll head. This is beer just does not have the complexity for me.

bhensonb (11069) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Draft at Gustav’s, Portland, Or. Aroma of dark roasted malt. Deep brown color with a dissipating off-white head; medium body. Sharp carbonation. Noble hops match the malt. Pretty tasty. In the finish the malt tends to dominate, but the hops build and persist. Very good dunkle in a light sort of way. Nice bitter into the finish.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 4, 2011
A: The pour is sort of a cola brown color with a finger of off-white head. S: Smells of burnt grain and burnt toast with some mild coffee aromas. There is a fairly strong amount of roasted malt and a mild nuttiness. Some caramel and toffee sweetness, but it’s overwhelmed. T: Starts off with a strong roasted malt and burnt toast flavor. Hints of coffee with a walnut-like nuttiness. Lightly sweet with some toffee and molasses, but there is a hint of acidity. M: Fairly light in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Wasn’t a fan of this one. Too much emphasis on the roast and it was a bit too much for such a light beer.

Koelschtrinker (10669) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 4, 2011
Schwach getreidiger Geruch. Der Antrunk des Bieres ist mild getreidig und kaum malzig. Zum Mittelteil wird das Bier würziger, bleibt insgesamt aber mild. Auch etwas malziger wird das Bier hier, wirklich malzig ist es aber erst im Nachgeschmack, wenn auch nicht wirklich lange. Zudem kommt eine hopfig-bittere Note auf, die den Nachgeschmack positiv auffrischt. Insgesamt ein mildes Dunkel, bei dem der Nachgeschmack das "Glanzstück" darstellt. Test vom 22.7.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,8,9,11,10,9 - 9,00
