Nice deep brown with a decent off white head that faded quickly with decent lacing. Malty and slightly sweet, nothing in the upfront taste to offend. Mouthfeel was pretty much the same with hints of chocolate, a bit thin. Finish was bitersweet chocolate nothing overpowering, nothing to make it very memorable either. All in all, a decent beer for the type and nothing I would turn down or try again if given the chance.

Had this in a bottle and is my first Dunkel Lager, so I looked forward to drinking this. It met my expectations as a very solid beer.

A - pours a nice, clear amber similar to what you'd see in a darker ice tea. Formed a nice head that's a little tan. Even after a while, there is a nice residue from the head floating around. Really really beautiful.

S - smells of a bit a citrus and of overly ripe bananas. It's a fairly complex smell but it's a bit hard to differentiate all of them. I'm

T - tastes of that little bit of citrus mentioned earlier but not too much of bananas. There's also a very faint hoppy bitterness to it.

M - a nice full feeling even with tiny sips. Very pleasant.

O - a very good beer that, as my first Dunkel Lager, leaves a strong impression. I would come back to this over and over again as drinking this is a pleasant experience.
