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.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is lightly malty (dark bread, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a hint of clove. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

Dark brown color, medium head. Nice malted, slightly roasted malts, some malt sweetness. Good hop balance. Nice flavor, perhaps a little mild? . Mouthfeel is full. The “original Munich formula”. A change from the Lowenbrau of a few years ago. Very nice. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty, slightly bitter.

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.

Headbanger (3226) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2014
12oz bottle Brewed by Miller (old Notes)-Pours brown with a small head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew was a pretty darn tasty brew back in the day.

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