COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once upon a time in the land of Bavaria, a darkness fell upon the beer in the town of Munich. But have no fear – this darkness was born of a toasted malt that produces a bready chocolate flavor. This full-bodied brew is now known as a Munich Dunkel. Our dunkel is made with just enough hoppy bitterness to scare away any overt sweetness. Then it is carefully lagered to produce a cleaness that no one will shudder at.

A dry, crisp and medium-bodied Dunkel with nice roasted malt notes. It tastes particularly clean and "well-made", which I find difficult to describe.

luttonm (6004) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Can in Seattle. Fizzy off-white head, malty cool brown. Cool caramel and banana malt. Some diacetyl-buttery creaminess on first sip. Some light cherry fruit, thin bitter finish. Cool fruity malt finish. Not stellar.

BeerViking (4604) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2016
Backlog from GBBF 2016, on cask, dark copper with a red-fruity and malty nose, malty-sweet with a bready toasty edge. Seems good but doesn’t deliver.

BillKismet (4019) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2016
This caramel-amber colored brew was highly carbonated, and topped by a caramel-tan foam head. Nicely accented Munich malt aromatic character that is followed through in flavor. Restrained grain and maltiness, and muted hops.

Theydon_Bois (18922) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2016
Cask at GBBF ’16, day one, 09/08/16. Reddish amber with a light beige cap. Nose is caramel malt, straw, mellow fruit esters. Taste comprises brown bread, toasted grains, airy malt base, light toffee. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Looks and feels good but lacks at the business end.

12 oz can, from a collection of different cans picked up from one of the latest breweries to show up recently in the Seattle area. In my couple trips to Colorado, these guys never came up, so I’m glad to see them make their way here. Dark copper orange pour with a lasting patchy head. Sweet and spice mild aroma. A very mild, gentle flavor, very easy drinking lager. Toast precise malt flavor throughout. Subtle nuttiness. Seems like this would be sweeter, but it never gets there. Doesn’t have a full amount of flavor going on, but this drinks nicely. Enjoyed this.

Leighton (20794) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2016
Cask at GBBF 2016, Day 1 - London. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. The character is defined by toasted cereal grains and light honey notes. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet on the finish, with further cereal, some bread, minimal bitterness. Not bad overall.

The_Osprey (7812) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2016
August 2016 - Cask at GBBF 2016 as ’Grimm Brothers Fearless Youth’. Dark orange, clear and still, small foamy tan head. Aroma is twiggy, light barbeque, ash, apple, astringent. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is dark malts, raisin, twiggy finish. OK. (3.0)
