3.94/5 rDev +5.3%
A: Pours a cloudy yellow to brown. Almost dirty with lots of sediment. Good head at pour and chunky lacing. Really appealing.
S: Citrus, lemon, fresh.
T: More citrus. Light yet with some malt body. Yeast is definitely present.
M: Good balance of a light summer beer with some heavier malting to give it some body.
O: Really nice.

Long neck brown bottle, 330 ml, bought in Germany. Poured into a lager glass at home. ABV 5,1%.
Dark brown colour on the body, with lots of activity in it. Two fingers of off-white, creamy head with good retention.. After a bit most of the foam disappears, becoming a thick film covering the beer's surface.
Very nice aroma of roasted malts, along with some chocolate.
Taste follos the nose. Roasted malts, some caramel too now and the chocolate flavour more obvious on the finish, giving this beer a nice bitter aftertaste.
Thin to medium on the body, light carbonation and a long dry finish.
Overall a good session dunkel.

This is a solid Dunkel. There is a little foam, not too much carbonation, and a nice taste -- dark chocolate and coffee but not sweet or bitter. No alcohol detected (at least for me) and it is very drinkable.
At the same time, there is not as much going on in this beer in terms of taste as some other Dunkels: cf. Augustiner Dunkles beer, even Hacker Pschorr Dunkles, which has a more refreshing and satisfying flavor. A clear finish, but with not much to make you remember it.

Huge bubbles, frothy off-white head. Reminded me of sea froth after a storm on the beach.. Recedes fairly quick. Little lacing. Looks a like a dark red-lemonade against the light, otherwise a very clear mohogany brown.
Smells malty alcoholic sweet and bitter. Not burnt, but not far off - well toasted I guess.
A little bit of toffee or caramel hard-roasted on the baking tray.
There's a good balance between the initial fruity malt, with the hops -and some bitterness- in the background. Malty again on swallowing. Nice flush of carbonation with the malt,
Tastes good, but it doesnt quite live up to the more complex smell.
Very drinkable - with snow outside at any rate ;-)

A: color is dark reddish, head is not so big so retention is almost not present. Carbonation is also low bit a small layer keeps on top of the beer.
S: not very intense, some toasted malts are present after smelling a lot, not much is clearly noticed.
T: flavor is good,toasted malts are present again but this time flavor is intense not as faint as aroma.
M: refresh and balanced, more a neutral beer than a changing sensation all the time has little sweetness and little bitterness.
A beer just a little above average.

A clear brown red hinted brew, a tan head with little lacing but some curtains.
Smelling caramel, bread and some soy sauce.
Sweet brown bread, caramel, dried red fruits, honey. Some bitter (rye) bread crust.
Little carbonation, soft and smooth, a small body, a slightly dry finish.
A light rather airy beer, with a short impression.
