Once again, Old Meck is bringing an authentic tasting German beer to American palates. This dunkel is tasty...unlike many of the big name German (overpastuerized, overfiltered, dumbed-down, emasculated) brands, which really only make their big name beers darker...and call them "dunkel." This is a very drinkable, easy to take, yet, flavor-full beer, very representative of the style, AS ONE FINDS IT IN GERMANY.
Smooth, nicely aromatic of noble hops and malt, with a clean finish--a terrific dark lager.
John Marrino really knows what he's doing in authentic-tasting German-style beer. At the pub, typically one can find at least a table of German nationals lauding his efforts--high praise indeed!
I'd encourage all those in the greater Charlotte, NC area to pay a visit. In less than a year OMB is on tap at over 80 locations....for good reason too.
"Good people drink good beer!" (Hunter Thompson) Old Meck brewpub is FULL of good people...
