3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
17-Apr-14 (330-ml bottle: $1.69 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA)
This beer is dark brown in color and some translucence at the edge, and it’s capped by half an inch of tan head that settles to a ring. The nose is malty and lightly roasty, with notes of cola, well-toasted bread, and a hint of sweet caramel. On the palate, the malt is lightly roasty and lightly sweet, with obvious flavors of medium-dark toast and cola, plus a hint of smokiness. There’s not enough roastiness to create any noticeable bitterness though, so this is pretty soft, easy, and smooth to drink. Weight is medium-minus, carbonation is medium, and the mouthfeel is reasonably dry. Overall, this is a light, easy drinking dark lager, but tasty enough to quaff mindlessly.
