International Green Week, Berlin 2012: Hall 12, the hall dedicated to German breweries and food to go with beer. We find a table and seats by the Andechs bar, leave the womenfolk to keep the area safe and we blokes start to forage for beers. Loads of breweries and beers to choose from I choose to try the Pilsner from this brewery, I enjoyed it, so went back and got the Dunkel, also on tap.

0.3 litre glass: Murky brown/copper body, good off-white foaming head that stayed the distance.

Malty nose and taste: caramel and nutty toffee type taste, but not overly sweet, smooth but not sickly or rich in the mouth. I tried to have a different style of beer (Landbier/Dunkel/Bock/etc) between each Pilsner during the mega drinking day this was reviewed on; using the Pilsners as mouthwash really: still reviewed them though!

Pleasant and easy to drink without setting the world alight.

From 07/13/15 notes. On tap at Zum Schneider in NYC. 0.5L in a stein.

Pours a mahogany brown color with 3 fingers plus of fluffy light tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Roasted notes, toasted malts, nuts, earthy, light fruits, yeast, and spice. Medium body and low carbonation, easy to drink.

Overall a decent dunkel; not the most flavorful beer but easy to drink and you could have a few of them. Good for the setting.

Pours a beauty into the glass. Deep chestnut brown. very clear. topped with a plenty 2 finder head of fluffy beige foam.
smell is nutty and a little roast, caramel
Taste follows nose including the roasted grains, a little burnt even or better smoke, nuts and caramel are there too, there is a bitterness as well with a noble hops flavour attached to it.
Very drinkable, carbonation is very well integrated and on the lower side.

Interesting how complex a Dunkel can get. With its smoke flavors it is not for everyone, but I like it and it is a long way from being a Rauchbier.
