COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Looks dark, tastes light. It’s Ontario’s favourite dark lager. A dark beer that is slowly brewed with Canadian grown malted barley, specialty coloured malts, imported hops and pure cultured brewers yeast. Dark lagers are enjoyed all year long, and they’re not as filling as ales. Waterloo Dark will cut some of the heaviness in sauce-based meat dishes. Waterloo Dark is an equally perfect beer to go with appetizers suitable for watching sports games, or used as an actual ingredient when preparing a meal. Experience what this great dark "light tasting" lager has to offer and why it has won multiple awards at the World Cup of Beer, Canadian Brewing Awards, Ontario Brewing Awards and the Monde Selection International Institute For Quality Selections.

I always considered this a "black lager". Everything about it- the aroma and taste is like a mid grade Canadian lager but it is clear and dark coloured.

Phatman (176) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2012
from can pours dark brown colour with a thin fizzy tan head. neglible aroma maybe some treacle, lightly roasted malts. watery mouthful dominated by carbonation. some sweet malty notes in there somewhere leading to a decidedly shrug-worthy whimper of a finish.

341ml bottle. Blackish brown with minimal head. Mild roast, coffee, caramel aroma. Taste of molasses, some earthiness. A bit syrupy sweet; flavour stays on the roof of your mouth. Light-bodied, thin and easy. Medium/high carbonation and an abrupt finish. Looks great but doesn’t retain enough actual dark beer character.

Didn’t really like this beer. Very confusing. It was a schwarzbierbier in colour only. It tasted like a very mediocre pale lager.

piscator34 (1949) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
Canned sample. Dark brown in colour with spritzy carbonation. Simplistic aromas of bready malts and caramel. Slightly more complex in the mouth with bread and toffee notes combining with a bit of minerals. Light bodied with a short finish. Tastes more like a mediocre North American interpretation of a dunkel or oktoberfest than a Schwarzbier. Where is the roast?

Stoutgirl86 (6) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2012 does not count
This beer is crowd pleaser (providing the majority are not too into beer). Most people who like beer will be satisfied with this beer, those that really know beer will be a little disappointed. But it is mild enough that non-beer people tend to like it.

northropfrye (2144) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 26, 2012
Slightly malty flavour. The body is nice and black but the head is mediocre and quickly fades. Taste is only slightly malty and roasted. Close your eyes and you’d barely detect the colour. Mediocre.

Drinkable, maltier than expected. The roasted nut flavor seems to dominate the mild bitterness.

roasty, coffee, full aroma, brown, light sweetness, light body, average carbonation, thin feel, not bad at all for the price
