sometimes you just find yourself in the mood for a dunkel, and this is always a safe bet to reach for. all the beers these guys do are real traditional and well done, and this is one of their best. its really really clear in its deep amber color. the head is tall and white, but it doesnt last all that long in my glass this time. it smells like german lager yeast first, a sweetish middle coppery malt base, and then an almost hefeweizen yeast where subtle dried banana notes and white pepper spice ease in. the flavor complexion is just like the nose, maybe a little light on the yeast profile in this one compared to other examples of the style, but its subtlety there allows the fresh caramely grain to be a little more forward. i dont think their are multiple yeasts in this, but it sure tastes and feels like there are. overall this is awesome, a super drinkable dunkel too right at 5% abv. most perfect in the fall, but these are fun to crack all year too. also a wonderful food beer, diverse in its pairing capability. a fine beer to keep around for the holidays too because of its quality, uniqueness, and probable mass appeal.
