3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby with a thinning, off-white ring. Sweet, noseable aroma of dried fruits, muscovado and honey. Suggestions of cake, figs, liquorice and chocolate raisin that wouldn’t be out of place in a considerably stronger beer (barley wine, doppelbock or dubbel) of some quality. Having plumbed the depths of industrial Mediterranean ’dark beers’, this was a pleasant surprise when I really wasn’t expecting one.

Had this @ 3 Monkeys and based on the label thought it was a beer you’d buy @ Aldi. Nothing going on here, slight malts, tinge of bitterness.

Not as horrible as you might expect from a COMPLETELY CLEAR BOTTLE. I mean, WTF is up with this? Could brown bottles be that much more? More like a Vienna, this is a nice sweet, low alcohol beer that goes well with Mexican food. Pours brown with tan head, slight skunk smell, but some malt sugars in the nose. Has a banana like finish.

OH MAN! I really liked this Brew, Plain and simple Dark American Lager,maybe because its named after the name of the town where i live and my great-great grand-father helped to establish,or maybe because it taste so good it makes me sad they dont sell it here. Very nice carbonated, some subtle caramel notes and very refreshing lager palate at the same time, clean and drinkable brwn body and white big-bubbled head.I would buy this one again im sure but this time a Whole 6-pack

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2010 Bottle at The Rake with Chriso from the stuff they were selling off cheap. Attractive chestnut colour. Bit of cardboard on aroma. Some ok malts. Malty and not great, bit of a dunkel. Not horrible but not great either.

Bottle at the Market Porter, Southwark, 27 January 2010 - from the cheapie shelf. Decent copper colour. Robust white head. Doughy malt aroma. Sweet fruity malt in the flavour. Better on the palate than on the nose. Not too bad.

clear amber, smooth light brown head. faint nutty and buttery aroma,
flavor is caramel, dark caramel, nuts, faint roasted stuff, malts, ends faint roasted, faint malty and with some caramel. only a little bitterness. if this is a macro then it is one of the better more flavorful of its kind.
