Bottle - This beer is mediocre. The color is nice, but the beer is thin lacking a full bodied flavor that I expect given the color of the beer.

Had this on draft today. No head and low on carbonation. Dark black coffee color. It is smooth but nothing in it gives it real character.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown in color with a light brown fizzy head, quickly diminishing. Malty nose with a hint of choclate. Flavor is sweet and grainy with some smokiness. Body is quite thin, clean finish.

Deep brown color with medium head.Malty aroma that smells stronger than it tastes. Smooth overall taste with a simple finish. For a cheaper beer pretty impressive

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep brown, with a little light passing through the glass. Thin, creamy, malty aroma, with a hint of pine-scented cleaner in there as well. Not a strong taste, but very carbonated, and a little watery, syrupy, but with a nice roasted, creamy flavor.

I thought this was pretty good until I tried Newcastle the next night, still nothing to sneeze a good thick beer

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent dunkel, with a nice malt nose, good ruby color, and a fairly light flavor. A stronger, deeper flavor would benefit this beer...and the drinker!

I was impressed with this brew. Good malt aroma, impressive color, and nice finish. Recommended as a lower-price dark lager.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice malty aroma but surprisingly NOT creamy. That is the name, isn't it? A let- down from a brewery that is my fave macro from North America. More body and complexity needed---ya think they took bottles of their lager and added carmel coloring after "over-aging"...?
