On tap at the brewpub; nice typical dunkel, with a rich brown colored body, fluffy off-white head, and good retention and lace. Bready malt aroma with a hint of floral hops just barely detectable. Big time maltiness.

Very much in the classic style; lightly toasted, bready malt is front and center, with very low bitterness and again, just a hint of floral, classically German hop character beneath it all. Moderate caramel sweetness. Dry finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation, clean drinking and fairly refreshing. Traditional and well-crafted. Not necessarily exceptional but a good example of the style.

First had: on tap at American Flatbread, Burlington, VT

Served [to my wife] in a signature flared pils glass, this beer poured a darker amber color, semi-opaque / clear near the edges, with a small, off-white head that dissipated almost completely. Aroma is pretty much straight-up caramel malt. Taste is similar, caramel malt, wort, cocoa notes, subtle earthy hops. Medium body, satisfying and drinkable. Probably would've appealed to me much more about 8-10 years ago when the dunkel was my favorite style of beer, but I still liked this.

Out of an aged growler provided to me by friends this beer was a copper color with a little over a fingers worth of tan head that quickly became a thin ring of froth that laced slightly. The aroma was full of caramel malt, chocolate malt and toasted malt, though little else came through. The flavors were similar to the aroma, almost all malt with hints of sourness and a bitter aftertaste that lingered. Though the added hop profile did help to balance the brew it felt a little awkward and just wasn't something I would ask for more of. The mouthfeel was smooth, the body medium/full and the carbonation appropriate.

This beer pours a dark amber color with a two finger head that recedes fast.

The aroma is rich, sweet and full of malt. Seems the part.

Taste is sweet with a grainy quality to it. Very smooth as well. Seems well balanced.

Mouthfeel is sweet and grainy. Smooth. It goes down well.

Overall, a very drinkable lager. This brewery continues to brew competent lagers that rival their ale counterparts. You could say that its their niche.
