Wow this really is just Asahi Super Dry with just a handful of chocolate malt thrown in to the mix. The flavor is not bad, there is just very little flavor present. Definitely the lightest "dark" beer I have ever had.

BB 05.2016. Poured a dark red-brown with a ruby edge tint and a two-finger light tan head that diminished slowly and laced OK. Carbonation low to moderate and medium sized bubbles. Aroma slightly of caramel malt. Taste slightly of caramel malt with a hint of roasted grain; low bitterness. Light body, a bit thin. Clean and dry with a slightly sweet finish.

Draft at Harrys Bar, Boat Quay, Singapore. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is light roasted malt, liqourice. The flavour is moderate liqourice bitter sweet with a rich think creamy light hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Found this at a Chinese restaurant in Melbourne. Dark brown with a full head. Aroma is a bit cocoa-toasty, as typical of the better big brewery dark lagers. Softer body, light chocolate.

Can. Pours a dark brown. Aroma and taste are light roasted malts and that’s about it. Better than any lager but not great.

Dry slightly bigger finish. Nice wetness on the tongue. Not too complex, could this be a dark lager? Tastes kind of like a bland stout that’s been thinned with seltzer water.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Radiant, deepest ruby with an off-white, drabby foam atop that laces well. Sulphury, eggy fart ensued by notes of boiled cabbage with just a hint of topsoil and peat. Tastes a lot better than it smells. Moss, earth, soft green herb and nut husks. No bitterness. Light sugars to the front with a touch of rust on the swallow. Chalky feel with a light body. Drinks with alarming ease but there’s nothing here to make it bounce. (33,4cL, BBE 10/15, Thirsty Camel, Ellenbrook)
