Pours with a dark brown body topped by a thin head with some lacing. It slightly sweet and malty with a very slight roasty bitterness. Not much flavor to it at all. Light to medium bodied, watery and smooth.

Very nice deep red look with a dense light brown head. Aroma reminds me of rhubarb and home made elderberry lemonade, fresh and fruity with destinct notes of roasted malts. The roastyness is alot more present in the flavor, but it different, smooth, and leaves a nice bitter taste of dry wood. A little thin bodied, which makes it somewhat watery, but i dont think its boring, just fresh. Good one.

A nice schwarz from the Czechs. Not bad and until now the best from there. But I’ll know that there are some better in that country. I’ll find them one day, but until then thisone is the best with notes of watery maltyness, roast, caramel, coffechocs and corn.

500ml bottle - Pours dark brown with a sweet chocolate and roast malt aroma and a medium sized, fading head. It has a sweet, roast flavor with maybe a little of the chocolate note coming through. It’s smooth and goes down easy. This medium bodied brew is good but not great.

Pretty crappy. One of the most pointless and watery beers I’ve had. Barely tasted like anything except subtle sweetness.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2009 Draught, Toronado. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate), lightly hoppy (herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Somewhat grainy/rough malt character, but otherwise pretty decent for something so low in alcohol.
