frankenkitty (1963) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2005
Rating for "Ferdinand Dark Beer". Label slightly different than pictured with a white background at the bottom. ABV was 4.5%, as stated.

Best before 29/03/05, consumed on 01/04/05... damn! Bottle poured a deep, ruby red body with a small tan head. Sweet, bready malt aroma that was a little juicy. Flavor went from sweet to sour, then finished sweet again. Not many discernable flavors.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2008 Bottle at home. Redbrown with a large light brown head. Aroma moderate malty (caramel, roasted). Flavor moderate sweet and bitter. Light body. To thin for me.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2005
This poured a reddish brown with medium carbonation and a slender tan head. The aroma is like that of wort in a brewhouse. The flavor is caramel malt with an odd mineral water kind of a finish that left a film on my tongue. My dunkel experiences are rarely good...

Bottle. "Ferdinand Dark Lager" (4,5%). Pours a clear bit dark brown colour with a medium short lasting light brown head leaving a bit of lacing. Quite sweet roasteb caramel and brown sugar aroma with some roasted malt. The flavour is also quite sweet with toasted malt, caramel, some brown sugar, bit grains and nuts. Sweet dry finish.

tlind2 (1236) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 8, 2010

ClubGonzo (4498) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a near-brown red-hued body with a medium light beige foamy short-lived head. Nose is light roasty caramel tones with hints of cereals and raisins. Taste is straight malty tones with hints of caramel. A bit watery mouthfeel. Too simple to convince.
