One of the best pouring beers made. Finally a brewmaster who pays attention to this. In the glass this beer is caramel orange at the bottom and gets darker at the top in the thicker part of the glass. The head is dense off-white and an inch thick, but weak foam, and subsides too quick. Aromas are staunch hops, honey, sugar, grasses, and strong wheat. Very sweet. Flavor has a distinct what malt, unmistakable wheat. If you’ve wondered what wheat malt tastes like specifically, this beer will show you.It’s lager like character drawns down clean. It’s overall mild, for a dunkel. It laces cleanly and, tastes good on the ranch. ketchepillar (1199) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUL 12, 2009
It is what it is. Kinda dusty, a bit of caramel sweetness. Nothing offensive or inoffensive about it, but not that great. llcooldave (1224) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2009
After pouring, dried fruit and crusty bread aromas hit the nose. A clear deep dark reddish brown color in appearance as it pours in the glass. Nice dark wheat bread in flavor with a toasty aftertaste. Overall it great! I hadn’t had something this pleasing in a long time. SB (334) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2009
12oz bottle. Aroma nutty malty. Flavor toasted malts, toffee, sweet bread. Very balanced. Medium mouth feel. Roasty in the finish. Smooth, easy to drink. Carbonation was mild. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Tasted at the San Diego International Beer Festival. Clear copper brown with no head. Nutty malty aroma and taste without much else going on.

12oz bottle at the Brickskeller. Amber-brown color, filtered and transparent. Minimal quick-fading head. Sweet brown sugar malt taste, quite smooth and well done. Not cloying, pungent, and/or thick like some Dunkels, this is quite well balanced. Caramel and toffee notes. Not much hop presence at all, in accord with the style. Pretty good.

In the bottle from HyVee CB. I’m sad that this is a green bottle, as I will re-rate this once the Crescent Moon gets it on tap. Pours a very crisp and clean dark brown with a surprisingly white head. Thios has a thin body with a good chocolate and roasted backbone. Good, but not great. Tmoney99 (14950) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2009

Bottle: The aroma is rather light and consists of some faint fruitiness and a hint of roastiness. It pours a transparent orangish-brown with a small off-white head. The flavor starts with light chocolate with some fruity sweetness. The finish has some light roastiness. Light-medium bodied with slightly fizzy carbonation.
