Bottle: Thanks beastiefan2k: Dark orange with a bubbly film of head. Has a cherap pale malt aroma. Slightly grassy nose. Thin body with a slight sweetness and a real macro feel to it. The finish is slightly metallic. Eh...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz. bottle. Really not half bad compared to what I was expecting. More of an amber lager than a dark one, but still fairly refreshing and at least not offensive. I could drink this.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from SL I think. No idea why this is categorized as a schwarzbier, a swill variant of a dunkel at best. Pour was clear brown with a thin but well sustaining head that was only slightly off-white. The aroma was corn with toasty notes some chocolate. The flavor followed, dry caramel, chocolate, nuts, toasted off corn, fruity type notes. The last two just ruined anything dunkel under this whole thing. Mouthfeel was light. This was Laosian dark Budweiser. Oh well, another country to tick.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma is a bit skunked with a little bit of caramel malt, chocolate, nuts, and a touch of grassy hops. The appearance is cola brown with a small head. The flavor is sweet and bitter but a lot like the aroma and also skunked. The palate is thin. Overall this is not that good and hardly a schwarzbier.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle courtesy of beastiefan2k. Amber coloured pour with a smell that can only be described as "macro". Pale malt with a touch of light nuttiness. Lightly honeyish. It’s drinkable, but it’s not good.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ Beerfest Asia. Fizzy head dissipates fast on a clear, light brown body. Aroma is flawed with butter and phenols. Light and fizzy palate. Some smokiness in the flavors is good. Actually it’s light but not bad to drink. Has good malt character and some floral overtones to boot.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled at The Globe, Central, HongKong. Clear nut brown, small head. Fruity nose with some paper. Mid-sweet and medium bodied with clean mouthfeel and taste profile. Barely enough substance to hide the 6.5%. Fruity and a syrupy despite being relatively dry. No bitterness. Dull, lifeless and Carlsbergy.
