In short: A clean, fresh and clean caramelized and slightly fruity lager. Nice session beer
How: Tap at brewpub. In the past Zero Gravity brewed a Dan’s Dunkel and a Dwaynes Dunkel. Both brewed some years ago. This one was simply called ‘Dunkel’, I’m entering a new entry, if you know it should be aliased to one of the previous Dan’s or Dwaynes please let me know
The look: Almost clear light brown body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose of standard toasted and slightly caramelized cereals with light fruity notes. Taste is pretty much the same, a nice smooth but never slim body, pleasant soft bubbles, toasted and caramelized cereals, some caramel fudge, some berries. Low sweetness sensation despite the initial caramel on the attack, high drinkability. Basically what I’ve listed are basic aroma and flavor elements for the style, however there was a crisp bright freshness character present both in the aroma and in mouth that made this a superior example of the style. Of course drinking it fresh at the brewpub and not from a bottle filled in Germany 6 months ago was the key to my enjoyment of this beer. All it all this one-day Vermont beer road trip was a success and I was also yet again successful at not being someone driving a PT Cruiser.
