Pours a crystal clear, medium brown; the color of strong pekoe tea. Sweet smells of warm pumpernickel, waffles. Taste is toasty with definite notes of rye/pumpernickel. Sweet caramel and toffee on the swallow. Medium body. Smell of rye malt really picks up as it warms a bit. This is an awesome beer! Definitely a euro-style dark lager and was not intended to be a Munich Dunkel. Style categories at this site are in serious need of correction/expansion.

Senka (345) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 15, 2014
From the archives:You do not see this beer outside of Russia that often. Closely resembles Märzen. Easily drinkable beer. Good to have alongside freshly grilled meat. Good mass produced beer.

Deep clear amber with big off-white head. Apple, caramel, light fruitiness, some cardboard, dry bitter finish (toasty and light hoppy). Medium to thin bodied, good carbonation. Decent beer.

0,5l glass-bottle. BB 03.06.07 Rating from 2007
Schön rot-braun im Glas, beiger Schaum. Das Bier als solches ist leicht röstmalzig-herb, schon leicht alkoholisch. Die malzige Bitternote wird im Hauptteil intensiver. gerade so nicht zu süß. Der Nachgeschmack ist mittellang, etwas weniger herb und röstmalzig-süßlich. --> Vielleicht doch etwas zu süß und etwas zu alkoholisch - aber durchaus trinkbar.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2014
Bottled, 500ml from Grosik European Supermarket, Banbury. Reddy brown with short lived off white head. The first impression is of syrup, almost like a treacle syrup, mouth-coatingly so with a boiled sugar background. Fortunately a fruity, malty flavour shows through eventually offering a little redemption, making it drinkable. Not one to return to for me but finished much better than it started.

It could be worse I guess, and this brew is by no means intimidating or deterrent. It just a little too little.. Kind of flat and malty. Hops used are cheap grain, so there’s a risk of that metal taste in your mouth. Malts are indifferent and more likely to be overruled by some light sirup. If you do enjoy this style of beer, go for the Pizza Port Junkle if you can get your hands on it. This is pretty much a low end Dunkel.

Bottle 500 ml. Sweet, malty with some caramel. Maybe a hint of metal. Didn’t like it.

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 20, 2013
500 ml. bottle. It pours a nice clear dark copper red color with a thin khaki head. The aroma is pretty nice with dark bready malts, hazelnut, some caramel and hints of cocoa. Maybe a tad heavy on the caramel. The flavor is caramel, bread with just a hint of cocoa and rye spice near the finish. Decent enough mouthfeel, but the body is a bit on the thin side. Not bad.

blackisle (457) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2013
Clear red copper, creamy tan head, good retention, nice lacing; sweet roasty malt nose, licorice, candy syrup, dark fruit, lemon, smoky, cinnamon; roasty sweetbitter taste that lingers on in the aftertaste, bit acidity and spices; rather thin creamy texture on the verge of watery, medium body.
