3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First attempt at ratebeer rating style: Pours very deep brown, clear, small thin fizzy head that quickly disappears. Aroma toasty and moderately hoppy. Light body, high carbonation. Taste is lightly bitter with a light bitter hop and dark malt finish.
Decent dark lager (not my favourite style). Well matched with sauerkraut and roast anchovies/almonds

330ml bottle. A clear, ruddy chestnut brown with a small, fading, fizzy beige head. Roasted malt, dark fruit and chocolate characters with a delicately yeasty, nutty, boiled malts and dried fruit mid-palate. Light to medium body and medium carbonation finishing with moderate intensity, relatively lengthy roasted malt and coffee-styled bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little bit citrusy, light to medium body, but remember, it’s a lager, not an ale! Sweet. Roast nuts. Quite nice.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is an odd brew. Sort of a cross between a citrusy American pale ale and a dark lager. Strong citrus aroma.and flavour but rounded out with a great coffee taste. However it is almost sickly sweet

It pours a dark brown red. The head is a thin lacing. The aroma is of coffee and a very interesting salty smell. The aroma doesn’t translate to the taste well, quite thin.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear but dark mahogany brown with brick red highlights and a small tan head. Aromas of soft fruit (like stewed apple or pear), Cocoa powder, and touches of lemon and flowers. The taste lets it down a little - the fruit is still there but the chocolate note seemed to disappear altogether. Virtually no bitterness, though a slightly grassy hop element comes through. Clean finish with a light fruity aftertaste. Not bad at all.

Bottle. Purchased expecting a dark ale, but light flavour quickly revealed this was a lager. Tasty roast and malt flavours made it pleasant but not impressive.
