6 pack, fresh from the fridge at New England Beverage. Poured in my celebrator glass. Looks pretty tasty. Smells a lot like the mai-ur-bock, which isn't surprising. Lighter than expected for a dunkel, this one's a stunningly clear amber.
I had to ease back on the pour to keep the foamy, tan head from going over the edge of the glass, and it thins out pretty quickly. Lacing is disappearing as I type this, so I may as well give it a go.
Taste is dominated by a slightly nutty, caramel maltiness. A tiny bit of oxidized twangy tartness is apparent moreso in the smell than the taste, but it's not really that 'off' and again, is very similar to the same part of the flavor profile of the mai-ur-bock. Finish is crisp, clean very refreshing.
I think I like this one more than the mai-ur-bock. It's a little cleaner on the palate and not as biting. With dunkel in the name, it could probably stand to be a little bit darker. Seems like it could make for a nice session brew.
