Bottle. Dark brown pour, off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt. Bready taste. While smooth, body is light to medium. Not a lot of complexity.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown to black with some transparency, with a rapidly diminishing tan head. Tastewise, this one is heavy in the malts, with a vanilla-esque finish. It’s a fine beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice dark color with some beige head. Smells roasty but doesn’t have too much lactic or chocolate character. To its advantage it does finish nicely and overall a decent beer

Don’t recall anything spectacular about this beer, but it’s a good solid brew. One of my first after a long absence from beer drinking.

12 oz btl. Pours root beer brown with a medium collapsing beige head. Aroma consists of caramel, toasted marshmallow, and bread. Taste is roasty sweet and a bit sour in the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy. Body is thin. Nice underrated beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown to black with some transparency, the head diminished almost immediately leaving a collar. Aroma is vanilla bean mostly, malt, not much else. Taste is the same, mild vanilla, moderately dry, but sweet. Drinkable, but very boring. Body is kind of thin, and carbonation is soft but medium. Overall not impressed, seems mass produced and basic, but drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It poured a dark black and gave the same color body. Just a touch of a cap of an off-white head appeared and lasted for a good thirty seconds and slowly died. The smell had some light sweet malts up front with a small dose of hops in the background. The taste was pretty much the same, but had a slightly creaminess to it. The palate was a light with a very steep creaminess hitting the tongue hard. This was a very drinkable beer. Overall, this is a good beer for its style and good for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear but very dark brown with creamy tan head with heavy lacing. Aromas of toasted and roasted malt with caramel. Very flavorful for a lager. Hint of herbal hops. Sweet upfront, then turns bitter. Very drinkable. Medium body with light/medium carbonation. Medium bitter finish. Surprisingly good.
