3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber color with half a finger head. Smell is lightly malty with a tiny hop aroma. It has a very light mouthfeel and not a lot of taste jumps out. What taste there is is malty with just the faintest hint of hops. Decent enough beer for what it is. If I wanted a lightweight beer, I wouldn’t hesitate to pick this over an AAL.

This beer brought me back to when I lived in Germany in my early years, I hung out in Irish bars back then. I opened the beer and the smell made me think of fighting, and bushmills. We all have our demons and sometimes we are transformed back to them, this beer does that for me.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Carmel malt aroma from clear amber-colored pour with a pillowy white head. Taste mostly stale biscuit - bready. A bit of hop in there somewhere, but indistinct and not aromatic or tasty. Okay mouthfeel - easy on the palate but perhaps a bit thin. Not bad, but mediocre.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass: Pours deep brown with a hint of red and a nice looking tan head. Decent lacing. Aroma of caramel malt and sugar. Taste is a malty caramel, sweet residual sugar, a little nutty, with a surprising but small amount of hops on the back end. Light to medium body, high carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. This is a pretty solid beer.

Bottle straight from. The aroma is fairly standard lager but does have a slight spice, a bit if a Maltiness. The taste is sweet, easy to drink, slight touch of bitter on the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It poured a dark reddish brown color with a thin white head that leaves nice rings of lace behind on the glass. The aroma has a sweet malty nose with some mild hop notes. Its flavor has a creamy smooth malt character that is fairly sweet with some caramel notes and mild hops for balance. The carbonation is very mild making the texture creamy smooth. It has a medium body with a thin balanced finish. Overall it’s a very drinkable beer with a good body and flavor
