3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a pint bottle into a Harpoon snifter.
The color is a ruby red color with a gold tint. There is a slight wisp of off-white head with a good a good amount of carbonation.
The aroma is pretty sweet with some fruity cherry aroma in the nose. There is a slight touch of grainy flavor in the nose as well.
The taste has a candy light flavor that has a nice sweetness that is missing from some lagers but not this one. There is an ale like characteristics that is found here in the juicy fruit flavor with a cherry and grape flavor that also has the faintest crisp flavor and feel.
This beer does have a lighter crispness that is like a lager but gives off a fruit taste that punches the tongue like an ale. This beer seems to want to go places it might not be prepared to do. The is some promises as you begin to sip this that does not seem to be fulfilled.

Reminds of sweet bread or rolls. Toned down spiciness and bitterness are in step with the with the sweetness. Light without being watery. Clean finish. This stuff goes down easy, in a word-smooth.

Dark mahogany pour with a thin beige skim atop. Aroma is nutty and malty with a hint of cocoa. Flavor is similar with more roasted and toasted notes noted. Chocolate hints are a bit out of place here, but plenty of caramel toffee on style. Finish is pretty clean and it’s drinkable for sure.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a pilsner glass, the appearance was a mellow burnt amber color with a nice transparency about it. Quickly dissipating finger’s worth of white foamy head. Spotty messy lacing.
The aroma had a wonderful blend of the bitter to sweet grassy hops to the caramel to nutty to bready malts.
The flavor leans malty sweet rich with the malts and transitions nice and clean into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Great sessionability about it. Carbonation feels good. Malts fine tune the body with a nice smoothness to it.
Overall, damn nice Munich Dunkel lager that I would have again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a pounder into a pint glass. Pours an absolutely gorgeous dark ruby red. Frothy white head and lacing. Mild aroma of cherry and bread. Mouthfeel actually could use a little more carb. Seemed kind of flat. Taste was very nice. Light fruit and bread with some cheeseyness too... but very mild. Solid beer and lots of flavor for a 5% beer without much hops.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can pour into taster cup at One Stop Market 30th Anniversary. Appearance is medium dark brown (like a light cola), mild head and lacing, decent sparkle. Aroma is a rich, savory malt aroma--a deep rich cracker/biscuit, with mild caramel. Taste is mildly smoky, rich roasted malt bordering on chocolate but not, a fatty/savory flavor almost like a wheat thin--very tasty. Palate is medium bodied with thick frothy, creamy texture, lively carbonation and mainly sweet biscuit/cracker malt finish that is dry and crisp. Overall, this has some really unusual aspects to it that are very good.
