On tap at Market of Choice

A hazy ruddy brown with a thin, brown head with decent retention and minimal lacing, this looks decent. The nose is a wonderful toasted wheat bread, rich and fresh out of the oven. Mildly caramelized with dark honey present. A very mild hop character is present, with just a little earth. The palate opens toasty, mildly sweer with yoasted dark wheat bread, buckwheat honey, a little burnt sugar bitterness and a mild and firming hop bitterness. A little earth, a little wood. The mid palate reverts to toast. Drying, mildly sweet and with a mild burnt sugar bitterness on the finish, this beer is light in body and a little overcarbonated, but I'm going to pin that on MoC. Very nice.

Poured into a Pilsener glass.
The appearance was a fairly dark brown color with some lighter hues of brown closer to the edge. Mellow finger's worth of off white foamy head slid off at nice pace. Some mild lace slid with the sips.
The aroma had a wonderful blend of sweet dark fruits meshing with some cocoa powder, some German yeastiness - slightly lager-like, nice earthy hop spice with an ample amount of dark bread.
The flavor took all of the prior mentioned aromas and combined to involve some sweet grains. This came together in the after taste with a mild graininess.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a very nice sessionability about it. Carbonation felt great and so was the ABV. Very nice finish of dark fruits, sweet grains and a dusty cocoa powder.
Overall, very nice Munich Dunkel lager I would very much like to have again. Perfect transition beer from Summer to Autumn.

From Decervecitas. In Bavaria glass. Watching House of Cards 1x12. One of the most crushable beers Ive ever have. The 50cl are finished in a second. Has sweet notes of caramel and roastyness and a great feel

on tap at pepis up in vail, nice to see some traditional german stuff on a tower, not enough of that out here in colorado in my experience. this is a good one, very classic, sweet and toasty, caramelized, malty but short of the chocolate range, and very easy drinking for a beer of this color. it has a tall white head on it, airy and slowly relaxing, chestnut brown colored, and it smells like dates and raisins and german lager yeast, dusty and stale in a good way. minerals and stone, very earthy in the taste before the sweetness of the malt sets in. again its classically german here on the grain front, less dry than some of its peers, with a cool fruity element to it. the perfect companion to a big salty bavarian pretzel and spicy mustard, and one of those european dark lagers that has four season versatility. highly drinkable and easy going for what it is, low alcohol but with some substantial body. not sure why the american palate hasnt taken better to beers like this, more for me i guess. i like all the stuff hacker pschorr puts out, and this is another fine example of what they do.
