Well, it could be a lot worse. Not bad when you’re on a budget.

some chocolatey roast, a little bit of caramel, nothing too special but drinkable.

Actually some real malt apparent in the aroma--amazing for a macro-product...Color a clear brown with a better-than-average macro-head...drizzled lace...Flavor is sufficiently malty to immediately recommend it over 90% of macro-lagers...Hop-top provides bite, along with carbonation that is a bit excessive...finish is slightly dry, slightly tangy...Overall, a very respectable mainstream product at a good price...

Nothing spectacular, but it is good for the price.

This is really not so bad! And it is cheap too. I think they even put some malt in it.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2003 I actually liked this, especially for a Weinhards. Nothing really outstanding, just more of the same, only darker. A great transitional beer, but nothing to quench the stout lover"s thirst.

I’m a stout lover, and still think this is fairly decent. The palate is nice, the flavor is dark, and lager like, but a hell of a lot better than an american standard. Give me this one again.

I do have a soft place in my heart for dark lagers, so I may be a bit forgiving. Sweet caramel flavour and aroma. Even a smidgen of hops. Smooth palate. Expect a stout/porter and you’ll be dissapointed, but is a huge step up from their american standard. Over carbonated.

Not bad for a dark lager. Stout lovers don’t bother. It does go pretty good with pizza. Try it.

An adequate dark lager if there’s nothing better around. Weak, watery body, nothing really distinctive about it, but inoffensive. When I’m at a party hosted by people who know nothing about real beer, I always hope they at least have some of this in the house.
