Very dark, small frothy head, faint toffee aroma. Dusty sweet toffee flavour, a bit short and a medium body although it’s a bit on the light side. By the end I found it overly sweet.

Pours a reddish brown with a quick head. Aromas of malt, nutiness, sweet. The taste is straightforward but drinkable nonetheless with notes of malt and caramel with a mild carbonation and mild to medium sweetness throughout.

Strong roasted malt flavours with long-lasting and slightly dry hop after taste. Decent body, if a bit light. A relatively flavourful and refreshing interpretation of the style.

Malty, coffee aroma. Was a cheap bottle of beer that I never had before, won’t go out of my way to seek it out, but I would certainly not put up a fight if it was put in front of me.

Dark brown body with a decent tan head. Nutty ,coffee and caramel. Average carbo. Well balanced and quite drinkable .One of the best quality /price ratio beers that I’ve drunk in Germany and my best Dunkel/Tmavý so far.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful clear red-amber hue glows in the light like campfire embers...medium light-tan head with good honeycombed lace. Pleasant light sweet maltiness dominates flavor, supported by some roastier malts and delicate hopping that leaves mild traces behind in the finish as well. Carbonation is also suitably light. Body is also light, and given the sweet flavor-bias of this lager, is totally appropriate. This is quite an enjoyable offering--not terribly complex, but a nice change-of-pace...well worth a try.
