Slightly oxidized but Very tasty Dunkel. It had a slight roast note that I enjoyed.

When it's in good shape, this is a fantastic flavorful easy drinking beer.

I wish I could try this fresh at Ayinger. It rarely tastes the same here twice in a row, but that likely an issue of age.

The slight oxidation didn't really detract from the enjoyment for me. It was present enough for me to notice but mild enough that the beer was a standout from that Lot I drank over the 4th.

Is tasting pretty damn good. The date is late March 2016 so this would seek to be pretty recent by most standards.

Wish they sold it on cans, they seem to stay fresh longer.

Unfortunately I think in Germany cans are seen as a "cheap beer" thing, but who knows. It's only quite recently that the canning technology has improved dramatically in terms of the amount of oxygen in the package.

I have a theory that the German flag was designed to pay homage to dunkel. Many dunkel, if you have a glass with a thick bottom, when held in the right light, will be black on top, red, then yellow/amber on the bottom.
