There are beers that I would buy anytime and anywhere, and then there are beers that are perfectly suitable for accompanying a meal, when dining out. I would put this pleasant, malty, reddish-amber beer in the latter category. Although inevitably served too cold and lacking much head, it is a light, but flavorful beer with some subtlety, hints of wine, fruit, herbal nose when opened (but quickly fading), etc., but also somewhat course at times - i.e., alcohol not well-integrated. I would say that its better than its Mexican counterparts as a restaurant beer. Could use more hops at the finish.
fuller body, kinda sticky, sweet licorice and caramel. seems like a more commercial version of a doublebock than paulaner. gotta check the price comparison but really this is good stuff. love the label too theprof (956) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2017
Bottle. It was either this or the pale. Aroma has caramel, cereal, bread, notes. Pours reddish brown , clear, minimal white foam. Taste medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, average carbonation, and sticky finish. It survived alongside a curry in Venice so deserves some respect.

Bottle from a mini-market somewhere is central Rome. Pours maroon brown with minimal head. Aroma of sweet malt, dark fruit, toffee and molasses. Toward heavy sweetness, light bitterness. Medium body, sticky texture, very soft carbonation. Sweet sticky finish. Zlotta (3285) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2017
0.33 l bottle from ’Bier & Beer’, best before June 2018. Clear, very dark red with a medium large, foamy, almost stable, off-white head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of mainly caramel, dark honey, some chocolate, lovage and a touch of red fruits. Quite sweet, malty and slightly roasty taste of caramel, chocolate, nuts, dark honey and hints of red fruits, followed by a short, moderately bitter, slightly metallic and a bit boozy finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Not that great, just a simple and typical industrial Bock.

rossa makes sense. Light and red great light head that’s playful with the glass in the lacing.
light toasting. I stole that from someone else on this beer, but it’s on point.
FLAVOR- it tasted pretty strong for an Italian beer then I read something about a dopplebock. And it all made sense.
