Reviewed on 10/8/08. On tap at JH. Pours a deep red with a very small white head. Aroma is pretty sweet, with rhubarb and light fruits, and some light wheaty lager malt. Flavor of sweet and light malts, some buttery popcorn. A little bland but not bad overall.

Poured a medium copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell was very subdued. A mild grainy malt was detected.

The taste was rather light upfront with a mild graininess. The finish was better, with a good grainy doughiness.

The mouthfeel was a bit on the thin side.

Overall certainly a good drinkable beer. However, too light of a malt element in my opinion.

Appears a mahogany color with a small, off white head that quickley fades out. Tiny lacing is left behind.
Smell is of grassy notes of German malt with some pils and caramunich coming through.
Taste is equal to the aroma. Definitely German influenced dark lager.
Mouthfeel is fizzy and mildly malty sweet.
Drinkability...I've never been a huge fan of this style so I'll call it like I see it and say it's about average as far as a German Dunkel is concerned.

Bold dark brown colour. Huge toasted and roasted flavour and aroma, more toasted than roasted. Maltiness gives hints of dark bread, coffee, mild chocolate and a deep hidden caramel. Hops are mild and the palate is of a typical clean lager. If you like dark malty lagers this one is a great pick.
