A-Bottle poured into a chalice, this beer is clear with a dark mahogany color. A weak tan head quickly disappears.
S-lightly roasted malt
T-dunkely. Decent toasted malt character with bready, toasty rye flavors. I get a hint of a cherry like flavor and tartness.
M-crisp finish. Moderate to high carbonation. Clean
O-A very drinkable dunkel. A bit light on the body.

S: Mild caramel malt.

T: Again, caramel malt, some toffee.

F: Light-Medium bodied. Higher than average carbonation. Very slightly dry finish.

O: Not the best I've had from Leine's but not terrible.
