Pours a three finger cream head that fades quickly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. Nice crystal clear amber color. Mystery bits in bottom of glass that may or may not be yeast. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Faint malty nose. Flavor reminds me of honey cough syrup. Far better than their Lager. $1.85 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma. meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2010

Malty, bit sugary, tasty and flavourful Dunkel. I quite enjoyed this with a good meal.
THOUGHTS: Not bad, but not great either. Surprisingly cloying. The hops in this one were pretty much just there to keep this from being nauseatingly sweet. It was a bit one sided, but it went down fairly easily.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, very dark, copper to dark, orangey bronze with nice carbonation and a large to huge, rocky, off-white head that mostly, but slowly diminished leaving excellent lacing. The aroma had a bit of dark bread; hints of chocolate and coffee; and metallic hops. The initial flavor was sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was rather to heavily sweet, lightly bitter and slightly sour with an average duration. There was caramel malt, a little roasted malt, hints of chocolate and coffee, slight metallic hops and some dark bread. The light to medium body was syrupy with rather fizzy carbonation and a fairly crisp and slightly astringent finish that get a little bit metallic as it warmed.
