Bottle, trade with Cunningham, huge thanx maaan!!
Very nice bottle design. Pours dark amber colored with flat off-white head. Smells malty-sweet, sugary and slight artificial. Starts artificial sweet and musty malty, very sugary sweet and watery. Middle part is watery and very artificial sweet, paired with some caramel. Goes into a caramelly sweetish finish with some musty malts.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks and tastes German, not unlike altbiers. Weak aroma of tea, cola and caramel malts. The taste also contains some cola and caramel. Not very remarkable, but overall a very good dark lager.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a dark clear copper. Aroma has dms and diacetyl, in addition to some caramel. Taste has some diacetyl and some hops (florals). To balance it would have needed malt, it is a very unbalanced and taste most like an industrial lager.
