A-Dark brown with a thin coffee head

S-Malty with some fruitiness

T-Slight malt flavor. Not much of the fruitiness from the smell. Very slight citrus.

MF- Much lighter than most dunkels

Overall- Ok, I was expecting more but it was a bit of a let down

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.
