From a big pounder can this stuff is good. Has many of the good attributes of dark lager, Schwartz, mild stout and dunkel rolled into one. Nifty mild roasty flavors. Small metallic hints, but still yummy. Very enjoyable for a lager lover who likes dark beers but not impy stout. Pleasant overall beer experience. Good job AV. Yes, pretty good stuff, easy to like.

Pint can from GasMart. Dark brown body with lasting off-white creamy head. Lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is very faint, some elements of the darker roast grains evident. Taste is very mildly bitter, burnt toast. Long finish with some dry, metallic bitterness. Nice try at this German staple.

12oz can -
The beer pours out a dark cola-brown body withe a sturdy khaki cap with nice staying power. Aroma is light caramel, coca-cola, and mineral water. A touch of berry juice on the palate, light caramel and chocolate present too...some earthy notes round out the profile. Not bad at all.

Dark red brown some head. Aroma of malt, acetic, wheat, caramel. Mid-full body yet dry. Tastes bready, roasty. A great lightish dunkel that avoids the syrupy I’ve seen in some east euro attempts.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can pours with a clear mahogany to amber colored body with copper edges that supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a pleasing mix of dark roasted malts, chocolate malts and a dash of earthy wet cigar tobacco as well as a faint sense of fruity lager yeast esteriness. Wow, these notes go very well together here. The taste is similar and I must be in the mood for this today too because I’m really digging this stuff. I get roasted malts, earthy wet cigar leafs, chocolate malts and a light lagery yeasty ester note in the background. Dang, hittin’ the spot, easy drinking and scratching my earthy wet cigar leaf itch. Giddy-Up.

Poured a finger and half of head on a dark brown body.
The aroma is grain and lemon.
The taste is cream, malty sweetness and grapefruit bitter in a wonderful blend.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Overall an enjoyable beer with some great flavor.

Had a pint on tap at World of Beer Columbus. Delicious. Fairly light and refreshing, but with some depth and maltiness. Very nice.

[Can (16oz).] Pours a dark golden-amber with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head. Some lacing. Aroma is kind of sweet, malty and nutty along with notes of eggshells and chocolate. Flavour starts tangy or metallic followed by caramel malt, light chocolate, some breadiness and vegetal notes. Light bitter finish. Average bodied. Not sure what style they were going for with this, whatever it is it’s only O.K.
