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.

esta cerveza me gusta, una de las mejoras oscuras alemanas. No queda de otra mas que empezar a hacer los ratings en bulk. Algunas cervezas no van a tener su puntaje correcto, pero no se trata de eso. Todo tiene que ver con tener la lista completa. Lo siento, no se apoyen en mis comentarios, pero vamos hacer lo posible.

Smooth tasty beer. Good amount of flavor. Always welcome in my mini-fridge.

Much better cold; the malt flavor is more appearant and some sour notes are hidden. Slightly-carmelly malt nose. A hint of roasted barley. Negligible head. Active carbonation. Reddish brown. Light to medium bodied. Front is a bit watery but the finish is malty and creamy.

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.

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.

Ok. This rating is for the old Miller Lowerbrau dark. I really miss that beer. It was one of my favorite beers from my school days. I know some people didn’t like it because it had corn in it, but it actually was a great tasting beer. What I remember about it was it had the best aftertaste of any beer of the day and it actually got better the more one would drink. I know it will never happen but I wish there was some way of trying it one more time.

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.

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.

355 ml bottle. Pours a dark black-amber with a large foamy, clingy, pillowy, clingy tan head that slowly fades. Taste is of caramel, roasted malt, chocolate and some smoke. Similar aroma. Has good mouthfeel, but the body is a little thin. Easy to drink and rather tasty.
