Who is Ted?

I'm the father of two beautiful daughters and an amazing wife. For fun, I enjoy the long hours of seemingly endless suffering that endurance sports (mostly running, cycling and triathlon)provide. During my "down time" I'm an avid beer snob and self-described gourmet chef (in other words I like to burn things on a stove or grill).

Beer of the Week: Dunkel

With nothing really new on the training front, here's another tasty submission to the Beer of the Week Series.  This time it's Prost Brewing Co.'s Dunkel.  It's subtlety makes it quite quaffable (say that three times fast!).  The first thing you'll notice is its color, a dark brown that's not typical of most lagers (it's not as dark as a black lager either).  The beer doesn't give off much in the way of aroma so the only way to get at it, is to taste.  Dunkel has a nice, balanced maltiness to it, but there's an underlying bit of earthy wildness as well.  Every now and then a sip reveals a bit of straw in the flavor.  Nothing overpowering or dominating, just a hint in the background.  The mouthfeel on this beer is very light as you'd expect from a lager and the finish is quite smooth. At 5.2% ABV, you could probably get away with drinking a couple of these without any trouble. Prost!
