COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Steeped in a long history dating back hundreds of years, this "old-fashioned" beer is again in vogue. Lager is the German word meaning "to store," so this beer ages three times longer than our ales do. "Dunkel" means dark in German, but don’t let the color fool you, it is by no means heavy, overbearing, or bitter. In fact, it proves to be a very drinkable session beer.

3.5
Bork (461) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Light and easily downed dark lager that, although very mild on flavor and aroma, shows off a nice roasted maltiness. Short finish.

3.3
jbruner (5289) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Pours a deep brown on tap with minimal tan oily head that leaves light lace. Aroma is roasted malt covered by lager yeast and fruity esters. Taste leans away from the today and mite toward sweet fruity esters and malt. Solid for the style, but unimpressive overall.

3.3
scotchzombie (612) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Pours very dark cola brown with a decent tan head that shows some legs. Aroma is bready malts and toasted grains. Perhaps a touch of caramel. Taste is quite rich - roasted caramel and toffee malt with a fine balance of noble hops. Dry finish with mild bitterness. Very good variation of the style.

3.4
aracauna (3683) - Georgia, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Nice nuttiness in the aroma and flavor. Really more like a light-bodied brown ale than a typical dark lager.

3.2
DCLawyer (2914) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Draft sampler. Medium brown with offwhite head. Sweet malts with molasses and nuts. OK.

3.4
snoworsummer (6076) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2014
From a bottle. Pours hazy brown with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like roasted malt, light sweetness, light earth. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like toasted malt, dried fruits, light raisin.

3.4
sonnycheeba (6360) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is toasted and cereal malts, light woody notes, light dates, and some mixed notes. Flavor is bready malt base, light toast, some dark fruit notes, faint hops, and light woodiness. Medium body and carbonation.

3.1
JHeath99 (1680) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with a ring of off white head. Aroma and taste of roasted malts and chocolate.

3.7
tnkw01 (1800) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle. Beautiful chestnut brown with a nice off-white head. Taste is a toasted grain, not burnt bitterness.

3.3
Sammy (12769) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Fair dunkel, recent bottle from NC trip. A bit much on licorice taste. Above average mouthfeel. Decent drinkability.
