This is a better than average beer, especially given the price. I haven’t tried it since they stopped brewing it in the USA, but I will be on the lookout for some of the Munich-brewed stuff.

A below average dark beer. Not that bad, but why settle for less? Surely not good enough to Lower my Brow. BAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!!!!1111

Not a bad dark beer, but not for being a German beer from Canada. No offence to Canadians, but when I want a German beer I hope that it was brewed in Germany. Anyway, the smell reminds me of baked beans and it is not really bitter at all. Overall not a bad beer.

Decent dark lager. This was the first dark I ever tried, back in the early 80s when it was brewed by Miller. I could barely finish it then! It was too exotic for me. Recently tried the Canadian brewed version and found it to be not bad at all.

Geez, I remember when this was the extent of exotic beers at my local liquor store. It’s really not a bad beer, but it’s really too sweet for continued drinking.

Not too bad. It’s another dark lager from Germany (by way of Cananda for me though) that tastes a lot like Becks or St. Pauli dark. Mild caramel flavor and a very thin texture. Not so bad to avoid, but I won’t be running out to get more.

Not bad, certainly better than I expected, but still nothing to write home about.

I would classify this as a Schwarzbier or a Munich Dunkel, although it is definitely not up to par with most of either variety. This is a very unobtrusive brew, but it needs more of a kick to be anything special. Mild malty flavor, very dark with a minimal head and lacing.

Very close to Heineken Dark in taste, but maybe a bit bitter and not quite as good. Decent malt body. Surprisingly drinkable.

medium body, smooth malt, low hop. was actually pleasantly surprised, since i really don’t care for their pale
