Review from notes. Enjoyed from a bottle at the Winking Lizard for $6.25 on Mother's Day evening. Poured into a large 22 oz. clean, clear pint glass. The bottle itself was 500ml.

A 2 inch off white head with dark brown translucent body. Little to no lacing but a nice creamy head. Nice look, appropriate to the style.

S Not a strong smell at all. Had to effort to detect some barley grains, light malt and very little if any hops.

T Nice thin, clean dark lager with many grains, barley able to be tasted. No strong tastes here and I think that this is appropriate to the style. I think that this is supposed to be a session beer.

M Light, appropriate to style.

D Good (the point, see comments above).

Notes: A solid Dunkel lager but nothing that inspires passion about the style.

A: Poured a soft cola with reddish-orange hues. A paper white 2 finger high capping sits well for a few minutes before dissipating to a thin whispy covering. The lacing was nice forming a splotchy ring that encompassed the glass while a light visible carbonation of tiny bubbles was noticed.

S: sweet home brewed ice tea with apple and orange skins. The scent was rather light overall with a faint dry maltiness.

T: The initial flavor was rather sweet as the nose suggested with apple juice and ripe pears being the most distinguishable. A sweet worty flavor with light hints of oranges and melons add to the fruity overall nature of the drink. Light hints of honey and sweet buttered toast also come through while a light vanilla bean finish closes things out.

M: light bodied and very oily slick, A sweet worty feeling coats the tongue along with a fresh vanilla bean fade is left after the swallow.

D: Decent drinkability for one, wouldn't consider this session material, was a tad sweet and fruity but the smooth clean german malting makes this worthy of at least a try.

Pours a chestnut color with a thin head that settles to a thin ring. Smells lightly roasty and with some bubblegum notes. Somewhat grainy as well. Somewhat similar in the mouth, but there is also a grainy sourness and a slight caraway spiciness. A little then, but interesting. I applaud the organic comittment of the brewery, and the beer isn't bad, but it could use a bit more character.

The Organic Pinkus Jubilate poured a dark brown color with a single finger foam head and not much retention. Not real sign of lacing on the sides. Originally when I saw this one with the name Jubilate in it made me think of Jubelale but soon I saw it was a dark lager.

The smell was sweet and of brown bread. The taste was malty sweet but not as full bodied as I was expecting. It was fairly thin. It was lightly carbonated and had a juicy fruit quality to it.

I haven't had many of this style but I felt it didn't quite match up to the Ayinger comrade.

500 ml picked up today with some coaxing from Matt at the Boise COOP.. Matt knows I love good German lagers.. and Dunkels are probably my favorite.. poured into my small weizen glass..

1" head dies back quick with only touches of lace and a firm cap.. the brew is lighter than most.. chestnut liquid.. very clear.. deep ruby when held to a light.

Aroma is light for the style.. toasty malts.. and lite nuttiness and very very mild chocolate.. and now the "bad".. oxidized and sorta banana ester traces...

Flavor is better.. crusty bread and toast.. only traces of caramel and just hints of chocolate.. Munich malts are the main player.. again some wet cardboard and something that I associate with banana esters... tastes like a cross between a dunkel and a dunkelweizen and missing both by a long way.

the body is medium and so is the carbonation... very nice.. yet I don't know ... the overall package is lacking..

This beer poured a dark red-tinged brown with a big fluffy head. The smell is sweet toasted malt with some caramel. The taste starts off with some caramel sweetness that gives way to some nuttiness and a tiny bit of hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is slightly thick with some moderate carbonation. This is a tasty beer that while it isn't anything that's going to blow your mind, is still worth grabbing if you see a bottle.

Pours a dark brown color with a one-finger head into my pint glass. Seems par the style.

Aroma is sweet and just a bit roasty with the aroma of grain and a bit of caramel in the nose.

Taste is smooth and sweet with just a bit of graininess and a light hint of caramel. Only a tiny bit of roastiness.

Smooth and barely leaves much of a mouthfeel. A bit of the caramel and graininess lingers at the back of the throat. Inoffensive and delicious. Easy to drink.

Not a bad example of the style. Could be a bit thicker but otherwise, worth a try.

The aroma is sweet and somewhat sour with grain, hay, grass, and herbs. The appearance is deep amber with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma with a cereal finish. The palate is thin but OK. Overall its a quality beer but I am just not into it. It reminds me of an Oktoberfest beer.

Reddish brown body, high clarity, looks like sun tea. Soft edges with fine lacing. One finger of foam that fades into a skim after a couple minutes. Aroma was a little funky after the first pour, but seems to open up a little after that. Bready with mild caramel, wood, and tobacco notes. More of the same in the taste, light and somewhat dry in the woodsy finish. It's not overly sweet like some MDL's, more like an imperial Maerzen or something. Body feels more moderate thanks to the carbonation. Overall easy to drink, sort of hearty, halfway to a doppelbock. Clean and fairly tasty.

An attractive shade of auburn in color, with about an inch of fizzy white head that quickly reduces to a thin film that sticks around for quite a while.

Toasted malts dominate the moderately sweet nose. There is a bit of a woody aroma and although I'm pretty sure there is no corn in this brew I can smell it. It reminds me of home ...I grew up not too far from an ADM corn processing plant.

Tastes biscuity with a honey-like sweetness and a hint of raisin. There is a bit of spiciness and faint herbal hops linger in the finish.

Pretty light bodied with a fair amount of carbonation and a dry finish.

There is just enough complexity here that I could drink a few before getting bored of it. It is light and smooth enough to be sessionable but the alcohol starts to peek through a bit too much, especially since it is only 5.5%

Organic Pinkus Jubilate Special Reserve Dark Lager pours a dark brown color with a white head from a brown half liter bottle. The aroma is quite mild, a bit malty perhaps. The flavor is also malty. Very drinkable, relatively light body (as appropriate for the style).

Let me preface this by stating the following. My review of this beer is predicated on the fact that it is a Munich Dark Lager and not a Dunkelweizen; I am rating it as such [Munich Dark]. Upon pouring it into my glass, I immediately knew something was amiss. It didn't take long to discover that this is listed as a Dunkelweizen whilst its label declares it a Dark Lager. Since anything with the suffix "weizen" is an ale....(A revision submission has been sent to the bros.)
I found this to be a wonderful example of the style, pouring a medium dark to dark brownish orange with medium orange highlights. Head was an off-white and didn't last long, but the web of frost laces the sides of the glass nicely.
Smell is fantastic with this one being an amalgam of sweet, toasted malts, brown sugar, and strangly, wet, freshly split hickoy logs. The only other beer I have found this in is Einbecker Schwartzbier. Very nice indeed. Flavour, too, reminds me of the afore-mentioned brew and is dominated by robust malts and sweet, dark cereal grains. Mouthfeel is a little "meaty" for a lager, which I really enjoy in this style. A nice Munich Dark, for sure.

*NOTE*
It's also worth mentioning, that my label looks nothing like the one pictured. The label on my bottle is white with gold text and says, "Pinkus Jubilate Special Reserve Dark Lager".

Dark ruby colour, with black reflexes. Head very quickly falling.
Smell of malt, chocolate, blueberry and alcohol, berry-fruits. Lightly liqueurous, sheery (?). And then something warm, mouldy, humid..
At the taste is more simple. Grapes, peanuts, berry-fruits. After all, anyway, quite flat, Some liqueur very very watered down. Malt, lightly caramel, dry fruity. Light body.
In the aftertaste the alcohol is again more evident. Lightly toasted.
It is a beer quite variuos, with a smell that changes quickly. But the overall judgement it is not positive.

Now were talkin" Thanks to some new friends at C.I.B.A.S., I aquired one bottle of this tasty brew! Thank You!

The look is slightly hazy due to the amount of carbonation which creates a thin ever present head. Nice lace. color is dark brown but you can see through it. Smell is spicy, malty and sweet. Taste is like it smells but with a dry finish.

Although not the best brew I have tasted, I am greatful to have aquired the one pint bottle. I would try again if given the chance.

I will now enjoy and watch the Bucs hopefully win the Super Bowl!

Nice deep garnet, the head modest in size, frothy and the lace is quite decent. Nose is that earthy organic malt, slightly sweet, hints of caramel. Front is malt, the top slender in feel, the finish minimally acidic, the hops sparse in presence and bite, dry aftertaste, and a bit of a disappointment to me as I expected a bit more “Robustness” and body, average is the best I can do.

Bronzish brown color with a nice tan head and good carbonation and lace. Malty, raisiney, rummy spice aroma and taste. Tastes just like it smells: delicious ! light bodied and smooth with a malty dry finish.

Label states "Special Reserve Anniversary Ale"
