Had on tap in Berlin, poured into a tall weiss glass.

L: Pours a cloudy dark amber/brown with a thick off-white head. Ample lacing.

S: Bread and toasted malts. Mild spices.

T/F: Tastes like a dunkel. Nice balance of the sweet toasted malts and mild hop bitterness. Caramel tones and good carbonation.

O: Very tasty dunkel and great example of the style. Nicely done.

Novice tongue weighing in.

A: Pours dark brown, with light, sticky, caramel head. No sediment or residue. Looks very appealing.

S: Malty, fruity, a hint of citrus. Hard to distinguish.

T: Tastes sweet, I picked up a bit of banana in the aftertaste.

MF: Very full, rich taste. Lingers on the tongue. Starts a bit like caramel and finishes slightly bitter.

Overall: My first Dunkel and I like it quite a bit!
