I would mostly like to point out that this beer is not a Dunkelweizen, but a dark American wheat ale. I was just talking to Danny (the brewer) today and, while the recipe is very similar to a Dunkel, the yeast is not an appropriate strain to create that style. The origin of this beer is actually based on not having the right yeast strain, but already having the beer at the mash stage as that fact was discovered.

Big light tan head slowly settle into a nice lacing above a clear copperish amber colored beer.

Well but lightly roasted grain malt accented with light hops in the aroma of this beer.

Lightly roasted caramel malts seem to dominate the taste with a little bit of the hops sneaking in seemingly as an afterthought.

A slightly dryishness on a somewhat wet aftertaste without much of the caramel malts remaining with this medium bodied affair.

The caramel malts almost seem to be on the slightly burnt edge but they are still quite light with this beer making have a lighter taste than I would have thought .

A - Clear copper-brown.

S - Slightly sweet, but nothing that grabs attention.

T - Mild hop flavor mixed with hints of chocolate malt and brown sugar.

M - Not much viscosity. Doesn't linger long on the tongue.

Overall - Drinkable, sessionable, but not unique or outstanding.
