      Bright deep golden. Huge dense head.
      Aroma (3)
      Quite clean, with just a hint of hops.
      Mouthfeel (9)
      Medium body, fizzy. Big noble hop flavor and bitterness up front, with a nice grainy-sweet maltiness. Bitterness lingers long after the beer is gone.

    • Date: February 26, 2008 (#6911)
      Package: draught
      Place: at the brewery
      Score: 18 points
      Appearance (3)
      Golden, with the slightest haze. Big thick head.
      Aroma (3)
      Mild sweet, grainy malt.
      Mouthfeel (9)
      Medium-big body, surprisingly fizzy. Big chewy maltiness, with a clean, sweet flavor. Maybe a bit warming, but there's dangerously little alcohol character here.
      Overall Impression (3)
      If it's really 8.5% abv, it's a tremendously subtle beer that demands caution in its enjoyment.

    • Date: February 26, 2008 (#6912)
      Package: bottled
      Place: at the brewery
      Score: 18 points
      Appearance (3)
      Deep brown, hazy. Massive dense head.
      Aroma (3)
      Very very mildly roasty and sweet.
      Mouthfeel (9)
      Medium body, moderate carbonation. Tremendously earthy, with a dark chocolate undertone. Quite dry. Quite smoky. Quite unlike any Dunkles Lager I've tasted.
      Overall Impression (3)
      Just when I thought all of their beers were golden, she brings this one, brewed for their 175th anniversary.

      Appearance (3)
      Bright golden. Thick head.
      Aroma (3)
      Mild noble hops, mild grain.
      Mouthfeel (8)
      Medium body, not "leicht" at all. Sweetly malty and a bit grainy, with a touch of diacetyl. Mild noble hop flavor, mild bitterness.
      Overall Impression (1½)
      "40% less alcohol and calories."
