I am new to the Dunkel variety (from what I have read, this is a Munich style), as well as to Frankenmuth. A friend brought this to my Super Bowl party, which annoyed me because he usually brings me a nice new IPA or APA I have never tried before.

The brew looks great, a nice brown color. The smell is great as well, not too strong or too weak. The same can be said of the taste, it does not over or underwhelm you.

If I can find more Dunkels like this, I will definitely move this style into my top 5.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Pours into a becker a deep walnut brown with a thinner light beige head atop that leaves a few spots of lace as it settles.Syrupy in the nose with light nut shell,the sweetness is the main thing here.To be expected it's quite malty and maybe a little sweet for the style with caramel and brown sugar flavors really standing out,just a light drying breadiness in the finish.Not a great example of the style but I love going to the brewery/restaurant on the Cass river close to where I grew up.
