Thought it was a dunkel, but really was a blend of an amber and a dunkel. Drank from the glass it came in, so I didn't get to notice the exact color or head, but after realizing the blended aspect of the beer, I decided to drink my second at a cooler temperature and it made a difference. Going to have to try this again in a different environment, had it while visiting in-laws over the holidays, which could have led to the higher rating. I think I would have given Strohs a 4 that weekend.

Pours a clear dark amber with a medium short lived beige head. Aroma and taste is of dark malts and caramel flavors, yeast, mild fruity notes and hops bitterness on the end for balance. A medium body with moderate carbonation. The finish is sweet dark caramel malt, some grains, yeast and mild bitterness with a bit of a nutty ending. Overall good drinking brew.
