3.16/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a bottle into a stein. A rather rough pour produces a nice-looking beverage with 4 fingers of solid foam sitting atop a clear amber-brown body. Sadly, the head isn't as long-lasting as I'd like. Nice toffee, coffee, and nutty toasted malt notes on the nose.

Disappointing flavor. I'm looking for a nice, round feel and rich clean malty flavors and I'm not getting it. The feel isn't too bad, but the flavor is far too bitter and lemony (skunky?). Everything starts out well. There is a brief toffee note up front, but lemony notes take over and really destroy the flavor. Not sure how this beer has such a nice nose, but such a sub-par taste. Perhaps my palate isn't clear or something. I might have to try this one again sometime just to make sure I'm being fair.

I really enjoy this beer, I just wish it was a bit higher %APV. Goes down easy. I could drink about a million of these.

Decent, session lager. A bit thin but still enjoyable.

Soooo tasty, smooth, and malty! One of my favorite beers of all time. It doesn't have the strongest flavor, but the flavor that is there is great. Just super smooth, easy drinking, dark malty goodness! I could chug these all day long, I can't find a single thing wrong with the taste.

It's not gonna blow you away with intense flavor, but it one sip will put a smile on your face and make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I'm pretty sure the first thing I said the first time I took a sip of one of these was "Mmmmm... malty!" That pretty much sums up the entire experience. xD

Warstiner's pilsner has a very similar flavor, but of course lighter and more pilsner-y. I far prefer the dunkel.

Dark, dull color. Vague hints of chocolate here and there. The beer was begging me to eat something with it but I didn't have anything so it took away from my enjoyment of it. Were this paired with bratwurst, a burger, or something similar, I think it would be a 4.
