this is a standout for me, one of the best examples of the style i have ever had, wonderful from the tap down at jakes brew bar in littleton. its deep red, pushing brown in color, with a nice frothy and airy tan head, looks great in the glass. awesome nose of old world german lager yeast, toasted multi-grain bread, a little caramel, a sprinkle of cocoa powder, and the dusty german malt i like so much in this kind of style. all the same in the taste, a little banana and pear fruitiness to it, oddly light for its color, delicate and nuanced, complex even, especially for the style. less sweet than others, more yeast flavor, deeply toasted on the grain, maybe a shade richer than others, but incredible drinkable with a rather light body, surging carbonation, and a pleasant lingering german grain flavor on the tongue after the swallow. honey roasted almonds come to mind, buttered toast, raisin, its awesome. feels healthy to drink this even. a lot of the german stuff doesnt get enough love, and i would put this near the top of the list. one of the best dunkels i have had in awhile.

On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and dark fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, caramel, and dark fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: on tap.

From tap.

Got a decent, stable white head, with a dark brown color.

Smells of biscuity malts, wheat and slightly funky yeast.

Tastes of bready, slightly bakers chocolate infused malts with a hint of honey and toffee. A distinct earthy, slightly bready maltiness acts as the foundation for the beer, which got a grainy, semi dry counterpart to it. Finishes with a recognizable metallic aspect, due to the high carbonation, with a whiff of noble hops and rustic bread.

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC.. A fine brew. Cool & refreshing. Slight caramel on the hoppiness. Malty fragrance. Everything in it's place & at a manageable 5.3 ABV, this fits right in with those long football 'n beer sessions. Can handle defense vs the hot wings or offense vs the less than guac. GO WHOMEVER!
