A really good beer with a solid robust taste.

Surprisingly, this is not terrible. Yeasty aroma hinting at coffee, followed by a yeast flavor that is accompanied by hints of prune and plums. Again, not terrible, just too yeasty and flat.

I don’t know why I continue to punish myself. While this beer wasn’t as terrible as its premium lager cousin, it was not very good. It had a sharp/yeasty taste in the middle of my tongue that just made the whole experience unpleasant.

Smooth dark ale. Nice flavor with just a hint of chocolate. So far, my favorite beer!

Very smooth, refreshing dark lager. Has a nice taste. Could drink anytime. Great with Brats.

Better than the original and priced the same. Good with Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, Brats or any other standard American fare. Bring it to the next picnic and seem interesting, but not quite the beer snob.

Not bad... Ain’t bitter, cool aftertaste.

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 10, 2001
Well, its dark - ruby red - I’ll give it that. This is actually far superior to the regular Lowenbrau offering - much better flavor, aftertaste, everything. Nothing stands out in the aroma, save for some malts. Very mild aftertaste. Still somewhat bland, but if you have to choose between the two, go for this.
