3.7/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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!

In the glass and settled, this beer is a thick (not viscous) brown with plum highlights and lots of bubbles sticking to the sides of the glass. The head is a tan one, starting almost a finger high and receding quickly to a thick layer with heavy edges that makes for solid lacing.
The wheat forms a dry base under dark fruits, fig and prune specifically, and a hint of banana notes with a mineral tone to it under plenty of caramel.
Something like clove is stronger in the flavor, breads heavy in the malts with caramel secondary. The mineral note still runs strong, but in a complementary way, while toast and dark fruits make up a good part of the bulk of the flavor. Herbal and floral hops notes hit the middle and lead right into the finish, where a bit of banana peel as well as a zesty lemon flavor come in.
It's pretty light in the body but leading medium, still deep and well textured. The crispness isn't too biting but remains firm the whole way through, while its cleanness is notable. It's smooth, too, and the light dryness balances the feel.
