Notes / Commercial Description:
Don't let the Slingshot's color fool you, it has a light body and smooth complexities that will remind you to never judge a book by its cover. Or, more likely, it'll just remind you that beer is a pretty darn good thing.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; no production information.
A: Pours a clear dark copper color with head formation akin to a cola soda and similar retention and no lacing.
S: Aromas mostly caramel to molasses with a small amount of lychee or melon initially.
T: Dry. Similar to nose, although maybe a little cocoa at first. Bitterness just enough to cause a clearly clean, refreshing finish.
M: Light bodied with medium, non-persistent carbonation. A bit thin.
O: A solid, very drinkable, but less than superior American made Dunkel Lager.

This beer is pretty good. Nothing mind blowing about it, but good none the less.

Look - clear syrupy with no real head or skimming
Smell - hard to give a 1 but I can't smell anything, odd
Taste - toasty Malts, caramel
Feel - fairly light body and medium carbonation
Overall - taste like a shiner Bock

Pours a soft, frothy, tan head. Soft aroma of biscuit and toasted malt. Starts with a nice, toasted malt and biscuit and a touch of floral hops. Finish is soft biscuit with a touch of toasted malt.

A pretty solid dunkel. Nothing mind blowing, a touch hoppier than I prefer, but solid nonetheless.
