A yeasty and mushy and fresh tasting brew. I would like to try this on draft with a nice red meat dish. From what I remember of the regular dunkel, I don’t recall any real difference.

Have had many a good German beer, so I was somewhat let down by this one. The fruity aroma was appealing and it forms a nice brownish colored head. The taste was average and it had to much carbination. It was similar to drinking root beer.
