Broke my rule against drinking beer in green bottles and bought a Becks Dark. Familiar green bottle skunky smell and flavor. Slightly warmer matly flavor than orginal Becks but sour flavor over-powers everything

"drinkable, but ultimately substandard brew. WAYYYYY better than the "regular" stuff...more flavor, didn’t smellas bad, etc...but not something i’d get again."

There was nothing else crafty on the menu, so went with this lager. The taste is smooth but nothing to repeat the selection again.

Another dud, dark but with properties of a lager that is pretty sweat although has this weird oily metallic taste but thats only if you get past the skunk smell when opening.
Thought a dunkel needed decoction mashing where a portion of the grains are boiled and returned to the mash.?
The term Dunkel means Dark however Tmav’y Czech or Slovak which is weird for a Bremen Germany brew.

Bottle, deep brown pour with a white head, slightly sweet with roasted malt and caramel but not much better than the light Beck’s.

Nice and strange for this brewery. The style almost same as the Bavarian ones although it is known for it’s pilsners.

12oz bottle at a greek resturant. Opaque black body topped with a thick, beige creamy head. Good malty aroma with light roasty hints. Malty/hoppy taste is well balanced. It carries roasty notes and ends with a decent bitter/roasty finish.

Bottle. Pours brown, with a off white head. Aroma is roasted malt and caramel. Flavor is slightly roasted malt, some sugar, and a little bit of hops. Not bad and easy drinking.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Has some redeeming qualities, but overall not worth your time. Starts with some chocolate, toffee and dark cherry flavors, but is upended by a bitter, metallic taste that reminds me of a dirty penny. Good carbonation but much to thin to handle the flavors.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle on a little pontoon boat cruise watching Epcott’s fireworks show. Medium amber-brown in color and fairly thin. Small eggshell head. Aroma of roasted malts, metal, caramel, and toffee. The taste is similar with a decent malty bite. Medium body, light carbonation. Finish of caramel and toffee. Actually not too bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium brown, clear, beige head. Aroma of pilsner malt, tiny hint of cocoa. Flavor: grainy pilsner malt with a corn-like quality followed by a grainy/biscuity dryness, touch of baker’s chocolate, a little metallic hint in there. I recall having better bottles than this particular one, it might be a little old.
