A dunkel is the only lager worth drinking. This is red from Munich malts...and alc is low enough to drink it all day.

From a 12 ounce can, pours a nice dark caramel color with a light aroma for a Dunkel style. Nice taste that's not too carbonated but smooth, easy drinking. This will be a nice session beer for people who like this especially well. My first time for MIL. Looking forward to a Karbach beer dinner this week. I think I would buy this one again. CHEERS Y'ALL!
As always, Respect Beer.

Pours a deep dark brown almost as dark as my MIL's heart.

Well roasted flavor. I gulped down 6 cans before having my MIL's Thanksgiving roast. I had three helpings and listened to her talk about Trump making America great again. Ugh. Kellyanne Conway recommended Trump reach out to women, but not by the P-word. The pleasant thanksgiving day with the MIL scored major bonus points with the wife and I had the best Thanksgiving night ever...

Actually, I have a soft spot for my Mother-in-Law. It's out in the garden behind the shed.

Pours dark with thin head. Don't let then dark color fool you, this is not a heavy beer. Drinks smooth with a crisp finish.

From a can into a pint glass. The color looks a shade dark for a Dunkel but I guess within range. Nice tan head. First taste tells me this is not quite my style of Munich Dunkel. There is a astringent/bitter edge that I don't think is coming from the hops. This is not a bad beer at all, just not very German-tasting and not what I consider true to style. A very fine Dunkel can be brewed with only Munich malt and maybe a small amount of crystal/caramel malt. When you start adding chocolate malt or worse, black patent, the roasted grain, porter-ish notes are quite unwelcome. Just my .02, of course. Otherwise well brewed with no off flavors that I can detect.

Poured from a can into a tulip glass.

Appearance is dark brown/amber in color and opaque. The head is initially a good 3 fingers thick, but there is little retention.

Smell is lightly roasted malt, caramel, coffee and vanilla. There is no alcohol coming through.

Taste is stronger but follows the nose with moderate sweetness throughout. The flavors are well balanced overall. The bitterness is low and the alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel is medium to light in body, a little watery yet fairly creamy. There is little carbonation.

Overall this is a good and well balanced dark lager. It is nothing to write home about but is enjoyable nonetheless.
