Not as rewarding as a dark beer should be. This lager did give me a different aftertaste then im used to from a lager.

This was the first ’dark’ beer I ever had. I was a bit surprised at the time, having only drank crappy Wisconsin macros until then. But after a couple I really enjoyed it. Now, I would rate this as an average ’dark’. Nice color, good malt flavor.

I really like this one. A good full flavor with plenty of balance for sweetness and malts. I was impressed.

I wasn't expecting much and I didn't get it. Smells and looks kind of good. I'd take it over most mass-produced made in the USA swill, but not over most other German beers.

A bit of a disappointment. Clear dark copper colour, OK head. Aroma of honey and some roasty malts. Flavour is a bit roasty for mine and not enough base malt. Drinkable but hardly memorable.

In 1979 I used to drink this stuff when I got off work. It was one of the few beers around at that time that weren't pale American shit. Dark chocolate, with not enough head and what there is doesn't stay around long. Cidery taste on the backend that is either hops or something fell from the pits of Hades. It was OK back in the day--now it just sucks.

this is very good beer for a mass produced beer but not easy to get in the USA

Nice brown color,small head that faded quite quickly.Nice malty aroma,a very slight amount of hops in the nose but it is almost undetectable.Mild carbonation and the taste was fairly decent,malty a slight sweet side to it with a mild hop presence.The after taste was malty very slightly hoppy with a some what thin watery feel to this brew.Not a great brew but still it wasn't bad and would make a very good high volume drinkable brew IMO.

Nice red-brown color. Good full taste. Loses some taste if its too cold. Does have a slight coffee taste to it, which is not good. Good, not great, probabl won't get again.
