2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Crystal clear, mahogony lager with a large frothy, off-white head. Good lacing
Both the flavor and aroma seem to be lightstruck. Skunky. Better flavors and aromas to note: chocolate, maple syrup and yeast. Well-hopped.
Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, bitter finish.
Just can't get past that skunkiness!

Beautiful dark brownish red. Sugary aroma. When touched to the lips, a definite butterscotch taste. Followed by some caramel and chocolate. Frothy head which disapates rather quickly.

Dark brown, almost black with a thick off-white head. Thick caramel and chocolate German malt aroma. Chocolate malt and earthy grains are most dominant. Finish is sugary sweet, but a little thin, otherwise a pretty good schwarzbier.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Frothy head. Malty chocolate aroma and flavor. Sweetish with some licorice. Nice and easy beer with enough flavor, but lacks some "bite".
