Smooth drinking lager, decent flavor but horrible after-taste. I tasted it well after it was finished.

Fresh bread nose, decent taste, nothing special.

For a Premium German Import, I was expecting a little more Actung Baby! This was mild to the point of being almost watery. What I could taste was good , but I won’t buy it again. Light on hops, a little too sweet and malty. Not overwelming at all. Sorry Warsteiner.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2007 Bottle (BB 04/08). Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, fully diminishing. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, caramel, roasted nuts), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a light note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Rather cookie-cutter and indistinctive.

had it on tap at a local bar. Not a lot of hop taste.. more malty. Was smooth and refreshing overall.

good taste - nice change. Goes down supprisingly smooth for the dark color.

Didn’t really care for this. It’s average and for 5 bucks a pint, I think not! Aftertaste is a bit overwhelming.

This is not a bad beer by any means. Much better than the premium pils.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2003 Rerate 10/06/03: Tried the draught version, and I'm not sure what I was talking about earlier. Light flavor, light body? Who knows. Dark reddish-brown with a thin beige head. The aroma is lightly nutty. It is light-bodied for a Dunkel, with notes of coffee and nuts. The finish is crisp which makes this a decent session beer overall. However it lacks any real character or complexity. 02/16/02 (3.4): Deceptively smooth-textured considering how dark it is. Since it is so light I would definitely choose over the Premium Verum. If it is going to be light it might as well taste good, and this one does. The aroma stood out a little more than the flavor, which I found to be very straight-forward.

This one is hard to describe. There is almost no nose. It goes down like water. Very smooth. I have never had this dark of a beer be so smooth. Not much head, either.
