An easy drinking medium body lager, with just a tiny hint of roastiness and a noticeable but well-balanced hop presence thatís not overly bitter. An opaque black lager that reveals deep ruby undertones in the light. Munich, Pilsner and Black Malt flavors play off the flowery, spicy notes of Noble German hops. Cold fermentation and conditioning with Bavarian lager yeast assures a clean draught with a dry finish.

On tap at Uncle Billy Austin. Roast and faint noble hop aroma. Dark brown with good white head that lingers. Tastes of roast malt, toffee, licorice, chocolate malt. Medium palate, correct for style. Dry finish. Good Schwartz Bier for the US.

Pours dark brown to black with a small head. Smell is smoky roast and yeasty. Toasty, roasty malt with an almost smokiness to it. Didnít have very good carbonation as it was poured on tap to a pitcher, and then my glass. Didnít care for this one and Iíd stick to their Pilz or Hefeweizen if given the chance.

Sample at Hay Merchant. Opaque brown-black pour with a medium light tan head that recedes steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt and hops. Light-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of bready malt, chocolate and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a roasted malt aftertaste. Decent overall.
