18 oz pint poured at Banff brewing. Pours dark brown with no head. Smell was hard to pick up but got a bit of malt. Tastes of malt and smoke. Not bad but not my favourite.

Modest head and a brown copper body with minimal carbonation. Aroma of spicy hazelnut but not too strong. Has a slightly burnt nutty flavour with hints of caramel. A little too weak on the mouth. Not too exciting. Oakes (18543) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
Ugly light brown and full of yeast. Sweetish character, light fudge but pretty thin, no pils character bur could be a ghetto supermarket schwarzbier. mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
On tap at Banff Ave Brewing, pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out English malt, metallic notes and herbal qualities - doesn’t strike me as a pilsner. Flavour also tastes more like a bitter - the German malts taste English, with herbal notes, a fungal quality, and some dry biscuity notes on the finish. Certainly quite drinkable, but as for being a "black" pilsner (it’s amber colour) and a German beer, it’s off style. Still, quite decent stuff. TimE (6069) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 13, 2014
thin, not enough roasty character. Moderate bitterness. Nothing exciting happening at all. Masterkush7 (580) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
brown with a thin white covering of fine lace on the surface. Nose has sweet malts, hint of nut. Some faint roast. Malty taste, light coffee. Noble hop notes with a decent lingering bitterness. Nice carbonation.
