At Bayern: Pours a beautiful chestnut brown with a small, off-white head. Sweet and inviting aroma. Taste is more roasty and floral hop filled, but a little malty in the end. Nutty, bur more sweet than anything. Not as roasty or smokey as I might have expected, but still enjoyable.

Draught at the Brewpub:Clear brown color, light head and lacing. Nose of light roast and tomato sauce, the flavor is light. Chewy body but not much flavor. I like a bit more roast and flavor is my schwarz. Very vegetal in the tail.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the PDX Green Dragon. Pours dark red, close to black, small tan head. This was a really pour schwarzbier, felt like they just took their pils and added some chocolate malt. Very grassy and grainy like a pils, but with just the slightest roasted malt character at the front. Lacked the silky smoothness and maltiness of a good schwarz.

Chestnut brown with a firm 1" thick lightly browned head. Light, characteristic Schwarz roastiness floats from the glass, however the body mostly lacks the roast component and just tastes like a German lager with a hint of roast malt bitterness.
