Well, it could be a lot worse. Not bad when you’re on a budget.

Not really too much to this one, although it does have a strange drinkability. There is nothing that puts me off about it, other than it is just quite simple. Kind of a caramel maltiness, but not a lot of dark beer qualities, finishes with a hint of nuttiness, and bitterness.

12 oz bottle via Fred Meyer. Pours a dark dark brown with a large tan head. Nose is toasted grains, nuts, chocolate. Tastes like it smells with some roastiness, and mild grassy hops in the finish. Body is light, carbonation is high. A sessionable easy drinking beer that tastes ok. Better than i expected from Henry.

Behold, our dark lager. It tastes nothing like the Private Reserve. We swear! See that label, its a totally different color. No, the beer does not look and taste the same. See, right here, the label explicitly states this is a "Dark Lager." ITS A DARK LAGER, can’t you read?

This is really not so bad! And it is cheap too. I think they even put some malt in it.

some chocolatey roast, a little bit of caramel, nothing too special but drinkable.

This beer pours a ruby reddish color in the light with a slightly off tannish head and little to no lacing. Aroma is slight hops and a hint of malt, but relatively little there. Flavor is slightly hoppy in the finish, very little in the carbonation and very little in mouthfeel. Not unpleasant but a lot to be desired. Ironically not the dry malty finish I was expecting. Hints of an older stale chocolate. Drinkable but not very palatable.

Bottle. Pours a dark red-brown with a thin tan head. The taste and aroma are of caramel, roasted malts and is kind of smokey. One of my more favorite beers as it is very easy to drink and is rather inexpensive in my area.
