friend offered me the swill while over at his house because he thougth this was a beer with some down good home cooked german flavor....not! basically like the original with some food coloring. possibly a bit more malty texture due to your eyes seeing brown and not nearly as skunked bitter that original always has. gotta love those adjunct macro gods!

I was a little disappointed by the "brewed in Canada" in the fine print. I’ve always thought it was sort of a scam when big European brewers brew in Canada so they can sell it in the US as imported (espacially since it is not any cheaper to buy). On the other hand, I found this beer to be quite good. Nice malty/roasted aroma. Flavor is also roasted malt, but not too sweet and quite smooth. I would be interested to compare this to one brewed on Germany.

FLAVOR IS ROBUST. AFTERTASTE IS STRONG AND TART. APPEARANCE OUT OF BOTTLE IS CRISP AND CLEAR, BUT BELIES THE FLAVOR.

Looks good - nice and dark, tastes good - some maltiness with some hops, not overpowering, but hardly any nose. This one was brewed by Löwenbräu in Toronto and is much better than when Miller had the license to brew it in Milwaukee.

Pours a deep dark amber color. Aromas of roast malts and hops. Big hop flavor, light body with almost no aftertaste.

Pours amber with a mostly receding tan head. Aroma of caramel, rye bread, fresh malted barley. Taste is caramel, toffee, and a bit grainy and bready. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Pretty good for Löwenbräu!

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2007
Rated 12/4/06: Pretty standard fare here, used to be a dirt cheap sixer back in the day. Seems harder to come across now. Weak aroma very grainy, nice dark pour moderate head. Very quenching and drinkable. Flavor has some bite to it, good maltiness and very little hop presence. Average dunkel but decent for the buck.

much better than regular lowenbrau. however, the "dark" label is kind of a charade, like heineken dark. it is still remarkably similar to original lowenbrau, just with an amber color and a thicker body. i was expecting more from a dark german lager, but this was tasty nonetheless.
