What do we have here? Excellent clear copper lager with kinda beige head, stiff monolith, lasting long. Smell - bear den, slightly diluted, woodcutter's sweat.) Taste is more sweet, malty, low hop profile. Good landbier with light body and low carbon dioxide.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

L: Pours a semi-opaque mahogany color. Thick off-white head that falls slowly.

S: Toasted grains and brown sugar.

T/F: Semi-sweet malts and brown sugar. Not overly complex. Mild hops at the finish. Fairly carbonated and a bit fizzy on the mouthfeel.

O: Overall... I just wasn't all that impressed, and not one of the better dunkels I had in Germany... possibly better on tap? Not bad by any stretch, but no reason to re-visit either.

Pours to a dark amber.
Doesn't smell like much.
Sweet taste but really I think it looks more interesting than how it tastes.
Mouth feel is a bit more interesting than a normal lager.
Overall decent, would buy again but it didn't impress that much.

The beer comes in a medium brown color.

The beer offers a pop of toasted malt in the front. Then onto a sweet spice and nutty toasted flavor. The beer dries out on the finish with some lager yeast.

A good example of this classic style.

Solid Munich lager. Lacking a little hit of dryness to clean it up but the sweetness doesn't really hurt.
