DSG (13693) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 17, 2014
Draught at Temple Bar Rotschild. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of grainy and bready malt and some diacetyl. Sweetish flavor with grainy and bready malt, some butterscotch and a drier finish, mildly bitter and a bit crisp. Light to medium-bodied. Probably better without poe diacetyl (possibly from dirty tap lines?) but still quite easy-drinking.

bierkoning (12926) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2004
Not a dunkel, but a märzen. Malty, flowery and hoppy aroma and flavor. Just a bit of orange and banana. Medium to full bodied. A hint of metal in the aftertaste. Well made, but not my favorite.

Dogbrick (12383) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Sampled at the Odds and Ends Tasting II on 10/19/07: This beer is a clear straw color with a thin white head that burns off quickly. Spotty lacing. Sweet malt and fruit in the nose, and a touch skunky. Light-bodied with a fruity character along with light grain and hops flavors. The finish is short and leaves a bready malt aftertaste. So-so overall.

jcwattsrugger (12317) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2007
12oz bottle-pours a big foamy to rocky white head that laces and yellow color. Aroma is sweet grain, a bit musty. Taste is sweet grain/light malt, a bit musty/barnyard, secondary/mild (mostly hallertau?) hops-some woody. Seems quite like a helles lager. Easy drinking. Mild carbonation.
