Nice darker brown color. Medium head, with little lace. Decent malt flavors, with a little too much sweetness. Not as good as I remember, but then those were the college years.

Headbanger (3303) - 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.

vinivini (385) - BELARUS - OCT 19, 2013
From retail showing 4,7% ABV. Deep brown light to medium body, Thin porous head. Aroma of brown sugar, roasted malt, bread, rusk. The taste is of sweet & bitter in similar quantities. Disappointingly abrupt finish. Well I’ve tried it.

Rating applies to 1960-1968 production, which included some corn. Current production is regrettably a wholly different experience, but at the time it was truly the best beer on tap on the Continent!

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.

milewide (1511) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Thin body and modest head. Very light carmel taste with little hop bitterness. Was much better years ago.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 5, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours out brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, light biscuit and some grain. Flavor is caramel and some light roasted malt. Mouth a little thin. Not too shabby for the style.

scooterbub (830) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAR 31, 2009
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.

rcasta (832) - EL SALVADOR - MAY 15, 2008
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.

RSRIZZO (1853) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Had this beer on 2/1/2000. Aroma is a light crisp malt scent. Carbonation is very good with a thick head. Taste is light crisp and clean. Starting with a light body it goes down crisp. The finish a light malt flavor with only the faintest hint of a roasted taste. It doesn’t seem to be much more than a dark colored Pilsner.
