Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light cola color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is malty, bready. Taste is toasted malts, bready, just a touch of sweetness. Feels light in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking beer.

Undated bottle at 40 degrees into SA lager glass
Aroma of toasted malt
Head small (2 cm), light brown, frothy, diminishing to 2 mm ring and broken layer
Lacing poor – rare island of small bubbles
Body dark amber, clear
Flavor begins with toasted malt, ends just malty; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation

Appearance 4, Aroma 3.75, Flavor 4.25, Palate 4, Overall 4. Final weighted score: 4.0625
This is a very good dunkel – only lack of lacing detracts from its appearance, otherwise the beautiful clear dark amber is very enticing. The toasty aroma is welcoming, the toasted malt flavor is darn near perfect, and the palate is delightful. This is possibly the best beer Penn Brewing produces.
