3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can from a buddy in Texas- thanks again, Bryan! Pours a deep cola brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, brown sugar, earth, nuts, and bread. The flavor is like a slightly watered down version of the same. Light-medium bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a watery mouthfeel that should be more toasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can:   Dark brown, almost black, thin frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Soft roasted malt nose, slightly bready in a whole wheat way.   On the tongue its pretty pale in its roastiness, hardly could say its even toasty.   Now that I see it uses the Urquell Lager yeast, it tastes like Pilsner Urquell a bit.   As it warms I get a little bit of bakers like chocolate on the nose.   Seems very clean, backside has a very faint pasture/earthy like tinge.   Comes across as a very average Schwarzbier.   Thanks for the can Bill!

Draught at the Alamo Drafthouse - S. Lamar, Austin, Oct. 20. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a small lasting creamy tan head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoke, toasted malt, caramel and notes of coffee & chocolate. Malty flavour is lightly toasted along with some light smoky notes and nuts. Medium bodied. A nice, easy to drink Schwarz.
