Floral notes, plus caramel, plus bread dough in the nose. Auburn colored with a thin head. Very sweet palate, very little in the way of hops, a very simple beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle as Organic Dunkel (from Ledgers). Medium mahogany color with a decent beige/tan head. Light, slightly roasted, caramel with peppermint? hop for aromas. Thin to medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is light caramel, not all that sweet, and there is a spicey/minty hop. Must be really interesting noble hop - can not recall this flavor from any other beer. Good nose while consuming. Finish is rather mild, goes a bit herbal, or might be earthy, but that nice hop touch hangs in. Reasonably dry. Not one of those sticky darks. What the Heineken and Becks dark lagers could be/should be.
