3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 Refreshing smell for a lager. Quite heavy head, darkish brown color. Head disappears very quickly. Slightly sweet aftertaste, hints of burned malts. Not the best dark lager but okay for a basic market beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma has earthy malting. Not much more. Look is good. Clear ruby red with one finger creamy, slightly beige head, also lacing. Taste is sweet, dark fruits, caramel malting. Light to medium body, thin and soft feel, low carbonation, very light roasted, finish short. Well..bit diluted and plain. Not bad but nothing special either.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can at a ChrisO tasting - London. Pours clear, amber-ruby with a fine, filmy white head. Toasty dough malts in the aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor, doughy toast, slight leafy bitterness. Somewhat bland. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp finish with very faint caramel and toast. Yeah, pretty bland overall, but not offensive.

Jos olisi tiennyt lageriksi ja tummaksi, niin olisipa ollut aika paljon parempi arvostella. Todella hyvä suutuntuma.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
50cl alu-can Black Horse Dark Lager III.
Pours a light caramel-white coloured head on the dark brown body, with bubbles.
Colour is close to schwarzbier, and "tumma lager" is dunkel/tmavy.
Scents of grass, hops, sweet malts.
Taste caramel malts, very smooth mouthfeel, and soft bitterness at the end.
Overall it feels close enough to amber lager.
