500 ml bottle w/march 17 bb date from local Getränkemarkt in weizen glass; very mild aroma--mostly a little bit of molasses and some light dry wheat husk; taste is very watery with mild raisin and mild alcohol and a tiny bit of toffee; feel is pretty balanced with a medium body and moderate carb with very little cloy/syrupiness; really a forgettable beer imo with very little aroma or taste but good appearance and above average feel

A stunning in-house dark malt steals the show. Robust sour breast malt, dark wheat, slightly sweet. Amazing fresh and clean feel. Very classic Dunkle all around. Easy to drink and very refreshing even as a dark malt. Light and soft feel makes the 4.8% and easy.

I've only had 2 Dunkels before this little bottle came my way.
The first was an amazing black walnut dunkel, then a more commercial offering of a Dunkel that was awful. This one was much like the first. Nutty, a little weak coffee like but a nice over all balancing act of hops and maltiness.
Nice Lager taste under a dark flavor like that?,..... , I'm going back for another!

Hazy dark brown with two fingers of off white head.
Smell is brown bread, plums, and some molasses.
Taste is similar to the smell but less so.
Mouthfeel is low carbonation very soft on the tongue. Finish is slightly sweet. Light body.
Overall a tasty sipper without much zing. I think it might be old. The code on the back label is: 11:14..C13.

Pours a three finger off-white head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Crystal clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Nutmeg and malt nose and flavor is hints of caramel, malt. Clean. $3.15 for a 330ml green bottle at Bert's Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

Pours a clear dark copper with thin off-white head. Aroma is so much malt and nuttiness - lovely. Flavor is slightly thin, but does resemble the aroma, just lighter. If this was more full-bodied it would be much better. Still very tasty.

Appearance - chestnut brown colored body with khaki head

Smell - caramel, toasted nuts, tea

Taste - toasted nuts, caramel, tea

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, lighter amount of carbonation, slight caramel/toasted flavor upfront, flavors do not linger for a very long time

Overall - I feel like the flavors of this one are a bit muted and the mouthfeel a bit lacking compared to other versions of the style. Still, overall, a decent beverage that's worth investigating if you are a fan of the style.

Price Point - $1.99/11.2 oz single

Interesting beer: Nice glass presentation in terms of its amber color and head formation. Taste is interesting, but a perhaps a bit underwhelming. Not really getting the advertised sweetness full-on, which is a bit disappointing: (I.e. caramel, chocolate, toffee, etc). Very subdued. Something--mineral, medicinal perhaps--in the middle that I'm not sure I'm onboard with. However, as the beer warms, that component seems to fade away. In the end, it's a decent lager, but not a beer that could really carry the conversation alone. In some ways, it reminded me a little bit of a near-beer; Clausthaler? One final note - color was almost identical to the Yuengling lager that my wife was drinking.

Aroma caramel, malt, faint burnt sugar, bread, & fruity notes. Taste subtle sweet caramel, malt, faint nuttiness & brown sugar. Ok Dunkel!
