I was happy to try out this newer offering from Michelob, pushing into the 'craft' beer market. While maybe a smart marketing approach, at least there is an attempt to produce a decent beer or two & do their heritage right. The bottle design & label is a nice touch that seems to indicate some care for the product. The beer came in a mix-pack that some friends had grabbed & quickly referred to the dunkel as the "bacon chips beer" and wondered if I wanted one. Well, such a description I thought was not too savory, but then again, their tastes are a bit more 'restricted' shall we say. The pour was a decent light brown with golden-orange edging that left a finger plus tannish head & a bit of lace. It was a bit of a pleasant surprise to see some yeast sediment at the bottom of the bottle & to see it haze up the appearance as well. The aroma was not as smoky as it was made out to be, rather, it had a nice roasted cracker malt aroma with some lemon-yeast. The flavor was likewise, but with a nice banana, pepper & sweet malt qualities as well. The body was lighter than many dunkels, but still had some creaminess to its crispness, which was unexpected. By no means a great dunkel, but a nice & worthwhile beer. Cheers, Michelob!
