Spaten Dunkel

On tap at The Rathskeller, Indianapolis, IN, USA.
So, I sit down at the bar and see the tap handle of this beer that I do not recognize. I order one and start chatting to the two guys sat next to me at the bar. One turns out to be the Spaten rep, and he tells me this is the first keg in the USA!
Nice color on the pour with a deep russet, red/brown. Color is good but the head is non-existent. No head, no retention and no lace. Very poorly carbonated.
Nice richness, but it maintains the lager crispness and easy drinkability. Easy to throw back a few. Very nich malt, nuttiness and tasty. Shame about the carbonation because it takes away from the experience and the mouthfeel.
