This one was a nice deep copper color, topped off with a thick tan head, very fluffy and stuck around for a bit; there's some great lacing too. The body itself is clear with medium carbonation. Mild hop flavors are the first thing you taste, strong grass flavors come into play and the aroma is pretty much a copy of the flavors, wheat grass, hops, and a mild sweet smell all mixed into one. The taste is slightly bitter overall and its light bodied, plus its goes down pretty smooth.

disappointing. tasted watery and insipid. It lacked that "wow" factor that I was expecting from a fancy beer in an attractive bottle. It wasn't offensive, just rather boring and uninspired.

Mouth feel, aroma and appearance were fine. It was just lacking in taste, quite frankly.

3.8/5  rDev +4.1%

A: Pour is clear copper with a massive thick and creamy head that slowly sets into fine lacings.

S: Roasted sweet malts together with faint bitter hops. Dark dried fruits, but not overly sweet.

T: Roasted dark malts, only faint sweetness. Bitter hops, rather strong. Some dark dried fruits lure in the back.

M: Long "dark" roasted bitter aftertaste. Body is medium, while carbonation is mild.

O: A nice Dark Lager, with the sweetness held back.

I have to say I was always wondered about the little beers I would see all over but never got around to trying the until recently when a German friend bought me a sample pack. Don’t let the look of these little beers fool you and the fact I usually see it in gas and train stations. It is actually really decent beer. The dunkel was very weak in most characteristic to this style. The flavor and the aroma were very mild in the roasted qualities that I think a dunkel should have. There was some roastiness but just very faint. The feel was a little thin but not bad and it was definitely easy to drink. There was a great malt flavor however even though not roasted and a mild hop flavor.

I bought it because of the cool bottle, but I definitely wasn't impressed with the beer. It tastes like a watered down heineken dark. Skunky flavor, little mouthfeel. No malt, no hops, just blah. Maybe this one sat on the shelf too long, but I won't buy this again.

3.78/5  rDev +3.6%

Clear amber with fast-fading off-white froth that leaves lacey trails - the pale end of dunkel. Dark toast and red berry, very Munich malt nose.
Rusk biscuit, peanut skin, sour grain with plenty of Noble spice hops to end.
Carob finish and tightening linger. Light, crisp, some chew yet quite dry.

Pretty lean and light for the style - nothing in the way of fruit to ease up the toasted grain. But still pleasant - like most Flensburger beers, it makes up for in drinkability what it lacks in depth and adherence to style.

First of all, this is such a good looking little bottle. Makes you want to try it right away.

Pours brownish, dark ruby with a thin off-white head. Looks beautiful.

Smells sweet malt with a hint of caramel. Very faint fruitiness on the nose.

The mouthfeel is that of a lager. Not very full-bodied. I guess it is what you would expect from the genre. Quite carbonated, with a lively feel.

Tastes sweet, with notes of caramel, toffee and some roasted flavors. Bitterness is not overpowering and adds good balance to the brew.

A very nice Munchen Lager. Sessionable. Very interesting when paired with yellow cheese. I would buy it again for sure.

3.13/5  rDev -14.2%

Dark ruby to amber color. Smell consists of sweet malt sugars.

Typical lager flavor with added light toast notes and some sugar. Tastes okay, but it isn't drop dead gorgeous mouth erotica, just good.

Mouthfeel isn't all that notable, it is really that average.

As far as the dunkel world goes this beer certainly is on the lager end, so no confusion there. It has that character that is almost always in lagers due to there yeast, and then it has some of the darker malt and sweeter side that the Dunkel truck delivers.
