Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue X:

Ruddy orange-brown color; the thin layer of sediment is left behind in the bottle to make sure it pours out perfectly clear. Decent head retention with ample stickage on the glass. Smells of sweet brown bread, light caramel and an ever-so-faint fig note. Slick medium body with a sufficient level of crispness to keep the beer lively. Clean and pleasant toasted bread character from start to finish really has a firm grip on the taste buds. Hops come in a little prickly as the bitterness slowly moves over the palate; quick herbal flavor leads to more of a mellow spicy note. Dry finish with a flash of toasted biscuit flavors and slight lemony hop.

For a beer style that has less wiggle room than others, this one is not only a benchmark beer for the style, but a stellar example as well. So clean and flavorful, each sip makes you want another.

0.5l brown bottle that was flown in fresh from Bavaria for the German Beer Fest! Bio/organic beer.

Pours a rich, dark brown colored beer with copper hues and a two-finger thick beige head that retains very well. Very pleasing malty nose that suggests sweet malts, with toasty breads, chicory, biscuits and honey. Mouthfeel is smooth, even, with a well-rounded consistency. Medium-bodied. Creamy carbonation, with a slight tonic-like crispness on the back-end. More toasty characters, with brown breads, hints of caramel and chocolate, fermented out honey, and some dextrin. Granola-like. Very light semi-citric smacking of hops and herbal note beneath. Fairly wet in the finish with plenty of toasty malts in the linger, eventually getting a bit dry with some biscuity/grain and hay-like tannins.

Neumarkter Lammsbräu is aiming to come into the US market in 2008. I really hope they export this beer as not only is this a great Dunkel, but it's a fantastic organic beer.

The label dons the "Bio" symbol which means it is organic under German law. The sample size is a .5L bottle that is poured into a plain beer mug. Sudsy tan head drops quick but the retention of the lacing is just fine, reddish brown hue flaunts a perfect clarity. Bready maltiness to start, mild grape skin, kiss of caramel and toasted malt in the aroma which come pleasant to the nose. The smoothness of this beer is out of this world, the medium body and moderate carbonation level make you want to take a sip quicker and quicker. Heavy handed with bready tones, toasted and mildly grainy with a faint hay-like flavor. Ample sweetness is balanced by a reserved hop bitterness. Faint grape skin flavor from the malt middle to end, solid dry maltiness in the finish. At 4.8% the alcohol stays in place, the palate is clean from start to finish with only a ghost faintness of cooked veggies (DMS).

I wish every German import would taste this fresh or at least close to it, a superb Dunkel that is extremely drinkable and packed with flavor. A beer Neumarkter Lammsbräu Dunkel is a real reason to visit Germany, not just the yearly fest in Munich.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a Libbey pilsner glass. Uh oh, green bottle.

A real nice hued deep chestnut and mahogany brown body color. Light tan head a bit foamy but with a nice growing pinhead sized bubbles in the formation. Settles to a creamy tan puck. Not much rising carbonation. Pretty solid.

Wow this smells like a doppelbock. Big clove notes, and cinnamon brown hot spices. Nutmeg and clove are all over this thing. A clean hop aroma of matching spice as well. NO SKUNKING luckily, we have dodged the skunk monster.

Very clean palate. Light crisp and with a nice caramel malt backbone, hints at light anise and licorice quality, with minimal toffee sweetness. Clean hop popping finish, and grain light airy quality. Good mix of light crispness and malt density as well for easy drinking.

A real solid dunkel lager, luckily feel even better dodging the green bottle of death (it appeared brown should have looked at the bottle cap neck closely I would have known better.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

11.2oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A: Brown in color with orange hues. Rocky off-white head retains very well. Foamy clumps of lacing adhere to the glass.

S: Grainy and husky. Bready, toffee, crust. Hint of brown cocoa powder. Caramel. Grassy hops. Subtle grape leaf. Clean.

T: Toast, caramel, cola, brown cocoa powder, brown bread. Husky grain. Hay. Grassy hops. Sweet. Clean. Whisper of alcohol. Caramel, cocoa, and husk on the finish.

M: Medium bodied. Full and creamy on the palate. Some syrupy residual sugars. Low carbonation amplifies the syrupy feel. Husky grain brings a mild astringency.

O: Just as in the pilsner, the husky grain gets to me. It would be a more enjoyable beer if not for that. Could use a little more carbonation too.

Poured clear amber brown with a weak head.
Aroma had more sweet caramel malt than medium roasted malt, but this is reversed in tasting. The lightly sweet flavor suggests dark bread baked with some brown sugar.
Medium body with spot on carbonation.
O: very good exemplar of style.
