Bottle. The pour was a coca-cola brown with some reddish highlights and an average sized (1-2 finger) light beige creamy head that diminished quickly down to just a thin film and a small foamy collar, which did create some excellent sheeting of lace.
The aroma was bold and roasty of a roasted caramel malt and a mild leathery yeast with notes of caramel, chocolate, a mild dark fruit and a bit of ash.
The taste was roasty, malty and mildly sweet with a hint of caramel from the start with the finish being about the same, but with a mild fruity presence and a touch of smoke at the end. The flavor lasted quite a long time after the swallow with a nice smoky/fruity taste left to linger on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was almost medium in body and a bit oily yet still rather creamy in texture with an almost prickly carbonation.
Overall very tasty and satisfying brew, one which had a nice bold roasty taste to it. Although I am not a big fan of this style, this one was quite enjoyable.
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours a clear, nutty brown with a lacing, beige head. Nose has subtle burned caramel. Medium body, very soft on the palate. Again burned caramel, subdued roast, slightly nutty with a hint of cardboard. There's not an awful lot going on here, but it's a decent little drinker in it's own right. 241117 edgallow (4627) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 8, 2017
12 oz bottle pours deep brown with a off white head. Aroma and taste of sweet malts and toast. gripweed57 (2967) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2017
From old tasting notes. Deep reddish brown color. Bubbly tan head. Mild toasted malt aroma. Sweet caramel-like roasted malt flavor. Some herbal hops. Pleasant malty aftertaste. Decent flavor but lacks complexity. ghostbeer (250) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Dark and some chocolate with raw nuts. Not bad, difficult to find in my area, but if you cannot find it you are not missing out on much. mintzmeet (458) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Good brown lager. Nice color. Nutty. Sweet. Light syrup not a bad thing. Hazelnut flavor. No roastedness. Fizzy.

Bottle to glass. Clear copper-orange with moderate, retained head. Grainy and slightly metallic nose. Faint orange and a little sea weed. Taste starts as faint caramel but quickly falls apart in the second half. There is a dishwater aspect with General huskiness as though the mash was dialed way too high for style. Slight ash. two7offsuit (448) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 6, 2016
