An interesting - but strong - beer. To my mind its a very pleasant "burnt malt" taste. Dark brown verging on black with little head, but a very full flavour. Body is more largerish, but plenty of punch. LBC is a 50% state owned 50% Carlsberg jv.

Browny beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is malty with some bitterness. The flavour is bitter with malty and mild roastedness and yeast. Overall a reasonable dark malty lager.

Pours a bright amber with a thick off white head...really nice lacing and retention. Aroma has sweet maltiness and a dry mapley/leafy note. Flavor follows suit but is a bit stale and metallic. Mouthfeel is full and silky and the finish is dry and earthy/sweet malty. This is actually very close to being very good!

Much better then we would have expected. Tastes more like a craft beer then a domestic. Pours a nice dark black with a tan head. Smells of chocolate and coffee. Taste is smooth with a bit of carbonation, some coffee and chocolate and a bit of vanilla not bad at all! Had in the bottle.

Bottle pour into tulip glass from Manchester Wine and Liquors. Appearance is clear, dark copper with trace sparkle, minimal off-white head, quickly fading to ring, with fair lacing. Aroma is caramel malt, fruit, English hops. Taste is fruit, caramel, English hops. Palate is light-to-medium bodied, thick texture, soft carbonation, and malty, sweet finish. Overall, good for the style. Enjoyable but not complex.

Bottled. Mild aroma, lightly grainy. Very clean. Decent body, only a touch of sweetness. No real off notes. A touch of chocolate. Not particularly flavorful, but very easy drinking.
