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

Pours dark amber with reddish hues when the light hits, off-white head quickly disappears leaving a some film and nice sticky lacing.

Sweet in the front and sweet in the finish. Caramel in the aftertaste. Nutty with hints of roasted malts in the middle of the palate.

Full bodied, enough carbonation to keep things interesting. Smooth.

Definitely a tasty lager that I would look for again.

Pours a medium to dark brown color with good clarity. Slight off white head forms and has good retention. Nutty aroma with hints of bread and cocoa. Just a whiff of herbal hops. The taste has more nutty and cocoa flavor with a slight bitterness. Sweet and doughy, a bit of caramel. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Overall, this is an average American Dunkel Lager.

I haven't tried this hometown brew in a while, so thought I'd give it an unbiased review.

A- In a dim light it's more clear than I would have imagined being a dark beer. It doesn't appear to be think, or very filling...it appears 'natural' for a dark beer.

S- Strong roasted smell, it's savoring, a bit sweet, very smooth roasted aroma, blends in with the beer. Expecting, and confident, a very proud smell.

T- Good roasted barley taste. Nothing overwhelming, but smooth.

M- Very light tasting dark beer, fills the mouth well, nothing overwhelming, but a taste that can sit well for a long period of time.

Overall- It doesn't try to hard. Doesn't want to impress in that sense, it does impress. It doesn't try to hard for something it's not. I wouldn't say it's a simple man's beer, but it's a dark beer for people that usually don't enjoy dark beers.

Bottle from Cafe Hollander in Tosa Village, WI.

The beer has a cola body with hints of ruby. A quarter inch of beige head quickly fades. The aroma offers bittersweet chocolates, light coffee, brown bread, malt. Ok flavor. Mild sweetness with moderate carbonation. Middle of the road.
